Friday is usually the end of my skating week. There aren't too many choices of ice over the weekend that don't have a lot of people on them. Getting ready for competition means bucking up and skating whenever and wherever you can. I took Thursday off this week and it seemed to help me gather my energy and motivation a little.
Today I skated at EWU. I used to hate this rink due to it's size and light .. (it's really bright white) - the ice is a bit softer and I never really enjoyed skating there. Recently I have formed a new opinion …
I love NOT being cold. I have no idea yet what awaits me in Ontario California or Hyannis Massachusetts, but a little extra practice on unfamiliar ice can only help.
Before I fired up the camera I warmed up on the ice doing all my Silver moves in the field - I am still struggling with the 3 turns BO to FI and BI to FO.
Footage today is a bit long. I ran through all my jumps and then worked on 2 of my 3 programs.
