So I tried to do a suicide skate again after months with almost no skating.
I almost died a couple of times.
Going down a very steep street in Highgate, I was faster than the car in front so I was going to overtake it on the outside lane (probably going at around 50km/hour) but didn't see the bus coming the other way, so jump onto the curb still at full speed but they was a car coming from the street on the left and was blocking me the way, I managed to dodge the car and the lampost to end up on that left street. It was a very close call.
I knew I was unfit, but I didn't expect Sparky, Owain, Duracell and Sam to actually drop me behind and I got lost god knows where. By that time I had cramps on both my legs and was unable to actually skate at all.
So I managed to skate to Bank and took the bus back to Marble Arch. But When I say that, I mean Grabbing onto a bus and let him pull me along. Everynow and then, I skated off to the next bus in front, but everytime I did that, my legs had cramps again, so I simply stayed with the same bus almost all the way. I almost died of exaustion!
Driving form the Vic to Rick's, I was trying really hard to not fall asleep and stay on the road.
What are the lessons learned:
1) Training is clearly not for me
2) It's fun to go downhill but be careful of traffic
3) I prefer downhills than uphills
4) Busses are good to grab, but they stop far too often
5) I must try and value my life more
Conclusion: I am most likely to be out again next Wednesday!
