If you remember me, I posted the junior in HS post about me trying to learn. Today I had my first skating lesson (6 AM, impressed the parents) and I have a few questions.
1. I was using rental skates and couldn't get the plow-stop down at all. My ankles were wiggling all over the place, it is the lowest size i could go and my feet kill. Should I get fitted and buy a pair of skates or wait till hockey season??
2. I made some great progress with forward skating but was still falling on occasion. I want to get some knee pads and elbow pads. With that should should I just buy the hockey shin/knees and the hockey elbows??
Thanks everyone, so excited for next weeks ice time
