Well, it's Monday. For some reason (crowded ice) I have declared that I won't skate on weekends most of the time. When Monday rolls around I don't exactly feel like hitting the ice -
I did about 30 minutes of off ice stretching dynamic and plyometric exercises designed to improve strength and flexibility as well as preventing injury for figure skaters. Mind you, they didn't have ME in mind when they prescribed these exercises.
When I got to the rink I found out the public session was on rink 2. Anyone who skates at a rink with 2 rinks knows what this is like. Different ice, different dimensions, temperature, texture, ceiling height.
Coaches will tell you how great this is to have 2 ice surfaces to skate on because competitions are rarely on "home ice", but I am here to tell you.... it's just one more obstacle for me!
