After last weeks competition, I had some time to think and discussed it with my coach - test session is coming up in 2 weeks (YIKES). However, I do have some reservations, and my coach feels - it is best that I should test my free skate in May which gives me much more time to practice and focus on my weakest elements (SPINS, I hate them) and put out a nice clean program that the judges will appreciate.
In all honesty, there is no rush for me to test, because I really want to compete at ADULT NATIONALS 2018....and deep down....."Diana, when you are ready, you will test for you and nobody else"
So, the decision....is to test in May!! These are decisions, all skaters have to face and/or ask themselves. It's all part of the sport and we all have family, personal lives that have more priority. Ice will always be there waiting for us!!
