…after a four year absence from ice dance I returned to the rink. Today is a good day. Realised very quickly I’d missed this sport. Skated for an hour, finding my feet and taking it easy!
Practised some figures, forward and backward – inside and outside edges. Picked up speed too circling the rink, reaching out on the runs at each end and confining the pushes to just four down each length of the rink. Attempted a few Mowhaks, Rockers and 3 turns.
Made arrangements with coach Lynn to re-start lessons next Wednesday at Planet Ice Solihull. We’ll establish where I am and go from there. Caught up with a couple of ice dancer friends too who, I haven’t seen in some time.
