I'm still sick. I think it has blossomed into a sinus infection. One more day and I am going to take an antibiotic. My energy is dismal. I thought I would stay on the ice and just walk through my program and try and improvise and create the missing elements and steps and arm and hand movements, but I simply skated around and around and couldn't pull any creativity out of my mind or soul.
On the ice there today was a coach, Karin Kuenzle-Watson and about 5 young skaters under her direction. I think they are part of the Inland Northwest Figure Skating Club. They regularly skate at EWU in Cheney. Here she is holding her gold skates. She was wearing them today while she was coaching a very young pairs couple and 3 other young single skaters.
As for my practice, it was a waste of time. My head was plugged up, then I had a runny nose and my feet ached and I couldn't get more than 1/3 of my program skated without stopping. I'll try again tomorrow.
