Decided to make the early morning practice and rushed out of the house to skate the 10:00 a.m. session (was late about 15 min) which means I skipped my breakfast, not that I am a breakfast person, but its doctors orders.
I skated pretty well considering my last practice was last month. I had my stand in coach aka my daughter (amazing skater) to coach me and must say I did pretty darn well. My loop jumps are much higher and my sit spins and back spin are test ready, woot woot. Now to make it work in my program consistent.
Worked on my free skate program (test). What I find easy for me is to break it down into 3 parts and went well. Decided to change my toe loop to the opposite side of the rink and changed my loop jump before my foot work. Now I am feeling confident with my program and its looking good.
When it comes to spins - I always leave till the end of my session - what happen next was not good. After my spins practice, felt very ill, dizzy and nauseous, had to leave the ice early. This is due to an empty stomach. Yes, note to self: eat something before hitting the ice!!!
Well till next time!! Happy Skating
