I ordered skates they're on their way. I'm nervous they'll need to be broken in something terrible.

My right leg hurts and the left leg doesn't.

What stretches are recommended for skating. Cushions? And maybe how to keep my foot from clenching!
Go a size smaller on the rink skates even if they feel a little tight. The claw foot is probably trying to keep the skate in place. A firm fit may help.
