Haven't Posted All Week

Sorry everyone.  I have had a terrible week.  After being off the ice for 22 days following Sectionals … I got back on the ice Monday and could barely skate forward and backwards.  I kid you not.

Tuesday was slightly better but I had such a lack of stamina and weak ankle .. sore this and that .. that I nearly threw in the towel for Nationals.  I skipped skating altogether on Wednesday and played golf …
That relaxed me and I returned to the ice Friday and skated both a public session alone and had a lesson with my choreographer on a freestyle session.

My stamina is gone (what little I had worked up to before Sectionals), but practice was good and I even forced myself to run my technical program with the jumps as they were choreographed.

So my next post will probably be after I get back from Nationals or maybe during nationals…

Wish I knew how to tweet!

Ta ta for now!

    I got a tossie (singing star, extremely cute :) ) from you at my Bronze I event! Thank you so much! It was my first Nationals too and it was a lot of fun.
    I've been watching your videos for a while now, but I think this is the first time I'm posting =P
    Thought I'd drop by and (finally) say hi. =)


    1. You are welcome.... I had fun too but it was VERY nerve wracking for me. I hope it gets easier with time. Thanks for posting.
