The bruises are coming along nicely. I have to get on the floor and kneel all day for work so these ones, while beautiful, are super annoying. Yesterday I had the worst second day DOMs in my abs. That I was legit excited for because again, it means I’m getting down in derby stance and actually using my abs to hold my upper body instead of using my lower back. In derby the joke is you can always get lower. It saves you from being hit off, it helps you hit other people off, it keeps you small for jamming, it gives you less distance to fall, it makes you faster, cures cancer, etc. Most beginners (me) lean forward with our chest instead of squatting to “get low”. That makes for some major lower back pain. It’s essentially the same thing as those dude bros in the gym squatting with their back instead of legs. I don’t want to be the dude bro of derby so my abs hurting made me extremely happy.
You know what else makes me happy? It’s Friday. Money is in my bank account, I have no plans for this weekend except the photoshoot and video shoot for the BDB. This weekend is going to be the best.
