|(Is she going on about this again?)|
Due to my enforced vacation *cough* furlough *cough*, I skated every other day. I started out only able to do 30 minutes on the first day two weeks ago, and after a week, I was able to do an hour plus with stamina and control. (My feet stopped hurting too.) My speed also went back to its old value and my edges improved. I developed a lot more confidence and stamina in my back skating (two consecutive laps today! I could have done more.)
It was boring at the beginning because I hadn't discovered my secret weapon: bluetooth headphones.
As I built up my stamina and leg strength, I restarted my turns, edges and spins. They're actually better than before. Speed has not got any better than my old speed. Sadly, I'm just a little too 'fluffy' to get the speed up to something suitable for jumps.
|None of this for me, this year...|
I'm a figure skater!
(With all the issues that entails)
You all have fun this week, see you soon!
