|Hopefully these will prevent me from immediately re-injuring my wrists and arms!|
Thursday, July 5, 2012
The east coast experienced wide spread electrical outages after last Friday's storms. Some areas have yet to have power restored. The City of Bowie lost power for four days. On the first of July, the local ice rink was supposed to reopen after being shut since the beginning of May for annual maintenance, however reopening day has been delayed until the 7th of the month. In the meantime I've been waffling between various designs of wrist guards. I want actual protection when I return to the ice rather than the illusion of protection. After seeking comments on the skating forum and showing various print-outs from the internet to my orthopedic surgeon and physical therapist, I've put in an order with Snowboard Secrets for Flexmeter all season wrist guards.
The flexmeter all season guards aren't cheap but they do come highly recommended by several skaters on the skating forum and pass muster with my surgeon and PT lady. Hopefully they won't be too bulky, but bulky is way better than another broken arm. I haven't received them yet but I should have them by the first part of next week. Stay tuned.
