|"We'll never mark the ice for Babbette again..."|
"We'll do power pulls today," Miss Bianca said cheerfully.
"I'm too fat," I said. "My knees will never take it."
Miss Bianca laughed that off. "We'll start with a two foot slalom."
So I did a two foot slalom, putting my weight on the skating foot and just brushing the ice then lifted the foot. I'm supposed to go down in the knee, then up, repeat. My problem, I get the upsie and the downsie reversed.
However, I had two actual real pulls. You can say that two out of 40 tries is a start. I consider it pure luck.
Then we tried them backwards.
Not looking forward to backwards power pulls.
Still, glad to be back taking lessons today!
