I skated today for about 30 minutes before it felt like I pulled something and decided to get off the ice. I didn't stretch at the wall and started doing loop jumps and pulled a groin muscle in my right upper leg. I have done that before and really injured myself for weeks, so I just got off the ice and plan to lay low all weekend.
I find, for me, that too much ice time does not pay off. 4-5 days per week is my max before I get really exhausted and start injuring myself.
Yesterday someone commented to me on my Youtube channel that I was very graceful, but skating rather slow - that was his critique. I totally agree, but not sure how to attain more strength to skate faster and hold my edges and land my little jumps. Probably just need to get into the gym with regularity and determination to push my cardio to it's limit.
