Exercise Yes 2 hours roller derby training
Workout Wednesday - why do I work out?
I joined a roller derby team 5 years ago with the aim to get fit... And it worked to a point. My fitness plateaued and I realised that to increase my ability to play I needed fitness outside of roller derby. So I started running a couple of years ago and that really helped.
Then I've lost around 42 lbs and realised that I relied heavily (pun intended lol) on my weight and resulting momentum to hit players out/down. So now I have to build my skill and strength more, so I've started strength training.
Before roller derby I could never keep to exercising for more than a week, now it's part of my (mostly) daily routine. I love being fit now and can't imagine my life without regular exercise.
