    Default Just played my first ice hockey game( pickup )

    and it was awesome!

    Played at the Ice Station in Valencia with a group of guys I met through a friend.

    Had a couple random collisions, those were fun, got a nice bruise on my chin now.

    Shot on goal or two, some great bursts of speed. However, I don't know how to stop very well yet( I can snowplow! ) and my low-speed/standing manuevering is on par with a turtle's ability to fly.

    Still can't quite figure out edges and weight transfer, a lot of bad habits( I think ) learned from inline.

    The rest of the guys played pretty much nonstop for the whole hour, I played for about 20 or 30 minutes, was gassed and sat for 5 minutes, played 15 more, sat another 5 and finished out the hour. I got back in to lose some weight(loving the sport might help just a bit too, haha ) and I think its going to happen.

    The most fun I've had playing hockey ever.

    Sounds like you'll fit right in with the LGK pick up games. Who needs to know how to stop?

    After a few sessions you'll figure out all of the differences from inline and you won't want to go back.

    They are right. I can think of three people just off the top of my head that can't stop on ice. I can't wait for the next LGK game so I can impress with my pedestrian slap shot.

    How is your back feeling? Make sure to keep your knees bent and your back vertical.

    My upper back was sore during and after the game. My neck is sore now, but I may have just slept on it wrong.

    Stretching is very key, you do not want a groin injury.

    Like “groin in-ju-ry.”
