Despite my hospital stay the first week of July (non skating related) has put my skating on holt. I was doing pretty good before then but now it is a step back for me.
On July 29, 2016
I skated yesterday and my skating was okay, but to be quite honest it was not as bad as I thought. My jumps and spins really needs work but with some more practice (maybe 2x week) I can get back on track.
There is a test session in at my rink in August, but I am not ready to take that chance, there is another test session in September (at another rink), but I am debating to do it.
1. price is double and 1/2 the fee.
2. Its way far from where I live, which means I will have to stay in a hotel.
3. Do I really need to test right now? only giving myself a few weeks to train...not sure what to do.
Coach said we can work on it - but now I am really thinking about, the next test at my rink is in November (the last one for the year) my goal is to test so I can compete at AN 2017.
I am not giving up, everything happens for a reason, and I just have to take my time and follow my gut instinct.
Here is a video of my skating yesterday:
No matter how hard it is right now, never give up on your dreams!!
