I was secretly happy that my lesson got cancelled today. Sorry my coach was not feeling well, but happy I didn't have to skate badly during my lesson. I have read about other adult skaters who reach plateaus and get frustrated. I guess it's my turn.
It takes considerable motivation to practice 4 days a week as well as doing strength training and stretching at the gym. I was going gangbusters for a few months while I was losing weight and feeling better. Maybe a good nights sleep will help.
Tomorrow I am going to see a physical therapist at my doctor's suggestion. They seem to think they can help me with my SI pain. Wouldn't that be nice!
Today I tried lacing my boots up all the way. Felt like a completely different pair of boots. Loads of support, but I am unable to get enough flex to do a deep knee bend or a spread eagle. Still breaking in those boots!
