"You Should Be Watching More Roller Derby Footage"
We are obsessed this month with the above blog (follow the link).
A roller derby player and coach started a blog that can be used to improve your skating techniques and strategies. They create GIFS from real footage for the rest of us to watch, and you can either be inspired by it and transfer it into your skating, or reach for the comfort food... I did a little of both.
Either way, much less time of my life is being taken up now trying re-watch old games to take coaching notes, hitting pause, spilling my coffee, getting distracted by cats on the internet, it's all handily presented in GIFS that replay again and again for you copy those tricky toe-stop blocks, and gawp at Bonnie Thunders, I mean..uh.
