Last week, due to fabulous weather, I took two extra days off from work so I would have 4 days in a row to skate. I started at 10am when the fitness path is deserted on weekdays and skated until it got dark enough use my blinkie bike lights to skate back to the house.

So I left the house ON SKATES at 10am and got home ON SKATES around 5:15pm. Sure I took some breaks but mostly just tuned into some jams and skating miles and miles just to get the "feel good" drugs manufactured in my brain.

After three days of 6+ hours on skates I just couldn't manage the 4th day. It was really windy and cold so I stayed inside and cleaned the house. I felt fulfilled and buzzed listening to the same tunes I played skating the previous three days. play list was exactly 6 hours and I used up EVERY song on it!

I guess you could call this an obsession.
