Anybody here rollerblade?

So basically the only cardio I do is running, and I know I need to mix it up. I have rollerblades, and I have tried it a couple of times, but I just didn't feel like I was really getting my heart rate up and "working up a sweat". Granted, I'm a little cautious when I do it because I don't to crash or whatever, so maybe I need to do it more consistently.

Thoughts?

It's huge where I live. People just skate around this giant park we have. I love it. It's fun & I think it's great exercise.

I bought one. Trying to learn but it's so hard for me because I've never skated in my life.

I used to roller blade all the time when I was in High School. It gives your legs a great workout. My legs still look good from it

Have you ever seen someone get totally out of control & eat it on rollerblades? It's probably one of the funniest things I have ever seen in my life.

Lol, I haven't, but I have a strange feeling that when I do see that, it will be ME.

Last October, that was me. I only rollerblade on paths now, not roads.

Oh gosh, I ONLY rollerblade on paths. Roads + me + rollerblades = accident waiting to happen.

Do you wear a helmet? I just wear wrist guards

My boyfriend & I were rollerblading & this cool dude passed us doing this smooth leg over leg action. I said, "how does he do that?"

My bf says, "like this"....he gets one roll in & trips over a branch.....totally out of control, jumped off the curb almost getting hit by a car, jumps back on the curb avoiding a biker, then eats shit right on his butt......the whole time his arms were flailing about like a monkey.

It was the most entertaining 20 seconds of my life.

Another time [age 17] I was rollerblading down a hill. I couldn't stop & a cop actually pulled up along side me & asked me if I was ok. I told him no & I was going way to fast. He told me I had to stop because a car was pulling out in front of me. So, I just sat down. It wore a huge hole through my jeans & my underwear. It was awesome.

That is too funny and sounds super painful.

I LOVE rollerblading!!! Great excersize!

I invested in a pair of 5-wheel blades but i need to find a good place to use them cuz they are REALLY fast so anywhere near people and or cars is out of the question!!

Yeah, I only go running and rollerblading on a paved trail near where I live. Its the only way to go. I just can't imagine having to deal with traffic lights, pedestrians, etc.

I went rollerblading in my area here in Dallas once...OMG it was scary!!! I live in an area with a lot of pedestrians and slow moving cars but it was still a very frightening experience!
