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.
