My Sweat Has Sweat On It!

“My sweat has sweat on it!” .That was my status last night after training! It amazes me what my S.W.A.T girls are capable of and there is something that blows my mind at every session.

So as you can see, I am finally back on my skates after my tooth catastrophe!…and I love it!

My first session back was a couple of weeks ago now. It was a light one and I had the pleasure of being Smousey, our Fresh Meat coach for S.W.A.T’s, demo model for our new Fresh Meaties! This was a lot of fun and I finally got to meet everyone who had taken the fabulous leap into the world of Derby. This session was the Freshies first proper training session and I was Smousey.

Scabs Knee Gaskets

As mentioned in my earlier post (Scabs Knee Pad Review) I think the size of my knees comes somewhere in the middle of Small/Medium and Large in the Scabs Elites so I needed a little extra padding underneath to keep them firmly in place. I shopped around and found some Scabs knee gaskets for £27.99. I went for a medium as I didn’t want them to cut off circulation but I also wanted them to give me firm protection and not move around. When they arrived they had Velcro on the top front and bottom front so that they stick to the knee pads. These bad boys weren’t going anywhere and I couldn’t be without them.

After a couple of weeks wear I found that the stitching was coming away from the seams. I have been very careful … Read More »

Scabs Knee Pads

After 5 months of wear the padding in my TSG knee pads was pretty worn down and they really weren’t fully protecting my knees anymore, I competed in my first mixed scrimmage and after a few falls and one severely damaged knee later I decided it was time to upgrade! So for my birthday I plumped for a set of Smiths Scabs Elites. The first set I got were small/medium but the Velcro wouldn’t even meet at the back, I don’t have particularly chunky legs but I think I must fall somewhere in between the small/medium and the large so after a quick exchange from the lovely people at Skate Britain I had my nice shiny new ones, the Velcro now overlaps at the back and can we tightened to fit. All I can say is wow, they … Read More »
