Here is what the form that the judge fills out will look like blank. If I had taken the test today, the comments in the box to the right of Forward and Backward Crossovers would have read: Skater out of control... tripped on her own blades, fell on her head. RETRY
I don't know why that keeps happening to me. Today I wore tight leggings, not flared yoga pants. No excuses for toe picks catching on clothing. I just heard the horrible sound of your own blades hitting each other.... and wham.
So after that I was wobbly and cautious. Nothing new attempted today. My Toe Loop is digressing. I did feel stronger today (prior to my fall) after doing the off ice jumping.
Today after I skated I went to the gym and set up 15 appointments with a personal trainer to help me gain some muscle and strength in my legs and for general conditioning.
He better work. He costs more than my skating coach.
4 days left of on ice practice before my test. Yikes.
Eek! Sorry you hit your head. I've hit my hip HARD on clicks, but never my head :( (Only done one head hitter, and I have no idea how I went down, was just suddenly down, backwards, while skating slowly forward.)ReplyDelete
Your blog posts sounds just like mine did right before my test. Now, granted, I didn't pass my test but I did skate really really well on it (the thing that didn't pass was my loop, and we knew my loop sucked...) so I think you are well on your way to skating great.
