Here is what I should be doing:
Warm Up Exercises
Today, in trying to get with the program, I did a few minutes of off ice jumping to warm up. I really need to discipline myself to arrive earlier and allow ample time for a proper warm up every day before I skate and also follow up with a proper cool down. I'm pretty sure it will improve all aspects of my skating and well being.
Part 1 of my practice today was off ice
Part 2 of my practice was on ice working on ALL the jumps. (- Axel of course)
Part 3 of my practice was working on Silver MIF
I can't thank you enough for that link! I should be better about warming up too. I used to take my dog for a 3 mile walk with a friend on mornings before I skated, which was great for everyone and served nicely as a warm-up, but we've gotten out of the habit, and now I really need something else. I'm going to try this plan and see how it goes.ReplyDelete
… Of course knowing what you're supposed to do and actually doing it are two completely different things! We will see how well I do. Maybe it'll work like dieting once I actually start to see the results of my efforts I'll get more motivated to keep goingReplyDelete
