Sunday Skating Activities To Do At Home

So it's Sunday, and it's raining outside.

Perhaps you don't have a rink run today, and you aren't (or can't) running any errands, but fancy doing something skating related, either for practicality's sake, or for fun.

I'm trying to get back into the swing of blogging, so I'm going to try and post little and often this week, to see if I can keep it up.

So today I thought I'd write a short post on some ideas for house-bound skating-related activities for a lazy Sunday!

I just love a pair of new boots (not that I've had any for a while now, and don't plan on it either)! They seem to symbolise a new beginning, a renewal of faith in yourself, and undying motivation to chase after those dreams. So what can be done to keep those little gems from becoming quite frankly disgusting, over the next few months?

How To: Use 5 Everyday Products To Make Your Skating Life Easier

Yes, I know. Skating, and skating-related products cost an absolute small fortune. Your annual budget could probably feed the population of a small developing country for a month.

I know I would have.

So here are three products which can be bought from non professional skating shops, which will make your (rink) life easier.
