A Week In Paris ...

... and no skating, of course.

Back on the ice today for the first time in 12 days.  Not as bad as I thought it would be.  All the walking and bike riding in Paris kept me in shape, but I was afraid my feet might have swollen up and would hurt in my boots.  Not bad.

I only took a short couple of minutes of practice today.  I worked primarily on my Silver MIF.  As bad as that went I should have just kept doing that all the time, but boredom sets in and I did a little free style.

Here are a few snippets of me trying to get my legs back under me.
Worked on my sit spin.  Trying to develop a cannonball position.  Getting used to
the idea of putting my head down and looking at the ice spinning under me is strange and dizzying (of course)
