Today I tried out my new skates at a pickup session. The seemed to break in quite quickly as they felt pretty good by about halfway through the session after hurting a little first.

Also I think I'm starting to remember how to actually defend properly. Before I ended up trying to play like a goalie and just getting in my own netminder's way if I tried to play D (I even dropped to a rather nice butterfly position trying to block a pass from behind the net once, which got me made fun of once I got back to the bench), but today I was pretty effective, broke up a lot of plays by faster, better opponents, blocked some shots and cleared away rebounds. The other team only scored once when I was on the ice defending.
