Well - I’m back. Sort of. Skated a few times in the past 2 weeks. I have a lot of lost muscle memory and a pair of really sore feet. My boots really hurt after a long summer and travel season in flip flops and my arches are barking from how unfamiliar it feels to wear my boots.
That aside this week two great things happened.
1. Adult Drop In Coffee Club restarted with a new regular coach - which will free me from needing to be there each week and the worry of trying to find a coach each week. Plus our rink is going to let the Coffee Club skaters stay for free on the public session right afterward.
2. I had my first ice dance lesson with Kendall Tupper-LeClaire. She is our rinks’ only ice dance coach and she left a few years ago to take a break and start a family. I’m so excited that she is back (even if only part time) as I felt I just could not make any headway with ice dance without a regular coach.
So here’s a few snippets of both!
