I came back to skating a week ago and mentioned to my coach that I would like to test in November her response was not what I expected but I had a sense that it was not going to be good. Well, she mentioned to me that my program is not test ready due to my absence and which I agree...its tough to get back and only have a few weeks to get it ready...its just not going to happen.
So, its a tough pill to swallow, however, I will continue to work on my skating and program and will see what happens this season. My dream for USFSA Adult Nationals 2015 is out the door, again!!!
Don't forget that I am a Open Silver skater with ISI and I can always go back to ISI and work on my level FS 5. So, going to compete locally and become a stronger skater. USFSA Testing is costly indeed, stressful and it does not define who I am as a skater, however, I will test again when I am ready!!
The lesson here is: We can set our goals and work towards them, but we have no control of the future and what is in store for us, just have to accept it and take it as a positive moving forward.
