I should have all 3 of my programs pretty much ready to go by now. My coach keeps telling me not to worry… that they aim to have us "peak" in our training just prior to a competition … but seriously folks.. at my level … there is no such thing as PEAKING
Went to EWU today. Nice warm rink to work out my frustrations. I don't want to make excuses, but the thing that is holding me back are my aches and pains. My jumps are really suffering from my R knee feeling like it's on it's last threads …. (2 cartilage surgeries in the 1979 & 1980) and my back … which is really my SI joint with bone spurs … all work against me when it comes to skating properly.
After this season's competitions are over, I plan to pay a visit to the orthopedic surgeon to see if there is any hope for restoration.
