Hmm.. thinking outside the circle love it...
The way he is exercising, he will not get his muscles evenly exercised.
Remember how roller-skating counter-clockwise in an oval path for one whole afternoon or evening felt?
If all you ever did was skate in circles of course you'd get tired. I never had any problems.
At every roller rink where I have skated, there was a direction in which everyone was to go, to avoid head-on collisions.
It has been a little more than twenty years for me.
My wife is now legally disabled by her health problems, so I cannot bring her skating with me. Unless I go as part of a church youth activity (with me as an adult participant in the program), I fear my skating days are over.
I see in the "modern skating" link that people who are making a full circuit of the rink (such as you see around the 17 second mark in the video)
are going in the same direction, then skate left when they near the end of the floor until they have reversed direction. Presumably they skate
forward until it is time to turn again (unless, of course, they are in the center area where some do moves which do not involve progressive
That is the same as my experience, except that I have mainly skated in rinks that are smaller than that pictured in the video. During a well-populated session, I was used to a more crowded skating floor.
Going back to the original post--if the mouse always turns left, like the skaters, he will be leaning left as he makes his turns and get uneven exercise.
Going back to the OP - do you really think this is all the mouse ever does? It was filmed because it was unusual.

Nah! Making a skating rink out of mouse trap.
