25 Days Later ......

I finally got back on the ice today after nearly a month off.  Wow, I will never intentionally do that again.

Things affected by taking that much time off:

  1. Energy
  2. Stamina
  3. Muscle Tone
  4. Muscle Memory
  5. Balance
  6. Dizziness
  7. Edges
  8. Confidence
.... But I am sporting a nice tan!

I skated about 1 1/2 hours today.  I didn't push myself as I knew all of these things above were going to be a factor.  I will have to ease back into it.

On a brighter note there was a big announcement today by USFSA:

  1. Hi Diane,

    I'm probably going to head up to Cheney for skating at 7pm tonight - love to have some company! Shoot me an email if you plan on coming (some motivation for the drive for me :-) Otherwise Sylvie and I should be up there Sunday like usual.


    1. Mark I am sorry I didn't reply earlier. I meant to skate today but didn't have time. I'll see you guys on Sunday if you go. I may skate tomorrow too, but I am not sure. PS send me your email address or Facebook.
