I regularly seek new challenging adventures because I love the reward of achieving something new. I’ve been caught out saying, I love to challenge myself. The truth is I don’t. I force myself to do these things because I love the reward at the end. It’s exciting and exciting is fun.
Anything you do related to your fitness and health shouldn’t be boring. It should be rewarding. Sometimes it’s hard but you always want to do something that’s worth the reward.
So Chloe decided to give it a shot. And she killed it.
You guys have seen me get back on rollerblades twice now. Once with my friend Eloise and a second time with James at Rollerblading Sydney. It really helps to have a keen eye looking over exactly what you’re doing wrong specifically and guiding you to learn to stop, start and slow down safely. It gives you the confidence to go out on your own and reduces some of those hearty nerves. So if you are looking for lessons I highly recommend James, you can check out more about it on his website: http://rollerbladingsydney.com.au.
So in the spirit of trying new things. We went to Centennial Park because I’ve heard they have flat paths and a rollerblade path.
If you are wondering where to go, what to do and if the paths are actually flat so you don’t freak out once your skates are on. I have all information here.
Rollerblading Centennial Park
First stop, I got a new pair of rollerblades from Skater HQ at Moore Park. The guy there was very helpful and guided me to a pair that I’m super stoked with. You can easily hire rollerblades from the same place and protective gear to give you more confidence. Especially if you are getting back on them for the first time in a long time.
Second stop, we walked across the road from Moore Park. There is a sign that point towards Centennial Park with an arrow and a big flat strip of pathway to practice stopping and starting and also skating before you decide to go over to rollerblade Centennial Park.
Chloe and I practised here first before we went over. Its a great place to make sure you’re confident with your stopping before you move along.
Third stop, we decided to rollerblade over to the park. This proved harder then we first thought. The pavers are slightly bumpy. You’ll see that in the video. It helps to continue moving over them as you feel the bumps a little less.
Finally once you get to the park you will see the cycle and rollerblade path straight away as seen in the video. There are clear cycle and rollerblade pictures draw on the road.
From there you simply follow the path. There is no uncertain areas and it is a beautiful view. Make sure you stay to your left so people can overtake on your right if you are a little slower.
