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:

Adult Nationals 2013 & 2014


  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.


Next Week TEST (trial)

 Last lesson this week before we try and lay this down in virtual test style.  We'll video and do full runs and see where we are at next...
