The next day after our pairs lesson I had scheduled a free style lesson with my FS coach Berkley. It was the only time she had available this week, so I reluctantly took it.
I don't know if I ever mentioned this but, I am NOT A MORNING PERSON. Especially when it comes to skating.
Nothing went right for me. I blamed it on my fatigue, my boots being laced too loose. Fortunately my coach knows she need to keep pushing me to try.
We worked on the major components of my program and then she forced me to do a run after nothing went right. I managed to complete it and she said it probably would have passed even though she knew I was having an off day. She said that was a good thing. If you can muster up enough strength to push through on a bad day - chances are you will skate strong next week.
I hope so.
