Oops I Did It Again ...

Another summer .... off the ice.  BIG MISTAKE!

Someday in the future, when I give up this dream/desire to progress and compete (or my body falls apart .. whichever comes first) then I will be able to scale back in the summertime.  From here on out - it's going to be practice practice practice.

Hence forth it has to be 6-8 hours per week on the ice and 3-4 hours per week at the gym.  Dog walks in the am followed by stretching.  In other words TRAINING.  I don't have that many good skating years left .. I need to make the most of it.

Here's todays practice.  Busy rink.  Sore everything.  You can't believe how much 10 lbs extra hurts a bad knee!

Next week I'm visiting my son in Newport RI.  When I get back - I will be back to blogging daily.

  2. Wait, that's your idea of a busy session? Add about 25 more people and you've got a quiet public session for me! LOL!! You're looking pretty good to me. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Shamefully Back on the Ice After Another Month Off

  I finally snagged an afternoon public session to get back on the ice for the first time in a month! No lesson scheduled for the near futur...
