What a great summer it was. It flew by ~ I had no idea I was going to skate so often and spend most of the working toward a partnered dance test. It was so much fun working with a partner again.
My modus operandi is to hang up my skates for a bit right after I complete a test or competition. I get so mentally exhausted and worked up over the performance day .. I just need time off. So I haven’t seen the ice since October 21.
Today I got back on the ice in Arizona and had a dance lesson with Vitali Vakunov. After not skating for two weeks and playing 9 holes of golf in the morning .. I was wondering how my legs were going to hold up.
Much to my surprise I never got really fatigued during the 45 minute lesson. We went from dance to dance doing warm up exercises before each dance then running them back to back. I was pretty impressed with my stamina. Of course I think Vitali is doing all the work .. I’m just along for the ride!
