Thanks in advance.
Rollerblading involves lots of legs and some back. I wouldn't be surprised if your groin muscles hurt also. That sounds typical of that excercise. It will help more if you get lower (bend the legs) and skate more with your legs than your back (like sitting on a toilet-for lack of a better explanation). You will also be more stable on your skates.
I skated (ice hockey and blading) for about 20 years and after not playing for a while my back would ache.
