I WENT TO ROLLER DERBY TRAINING LAST NIGHT! Oh it was SO GOOD to get my skates on again! It hurt... In so many different ways, but I was having so much fun I just didn't care. I'm paying for it today, but I still don't care ☺ it's nice to leave the house for something besides work!
It.... Sort of hurts less when I'm prepared and its on purpose? Like if I bump into a door fame (which I do often) it hurts like mad, but throwing my butt into another lady on purpose - no worries apparently!
when you are prepared for a block, your body absorbs most of the shock on impact because you build up a muscular pre-tension. Walking into a door frame (or a blind side hit) are much worse because it shocks your nerves and causes your muscles to jerk into unexpected tension.
