Back From Injury

4 Dec

I finally stepped foot on ice today for the first time in 7 1/2 months. After a VERY long rehab (which is still ongoing) I decided it was time to try and skate even though I said I wouldn’t. I was terrified, excited and well…again, terrified.

I was going to write a really long blog post about my injury and recovery  but decided I would just make a little video of the last 7 months. Short and sweet.

Thanks to C. for taking the pics and video on the ice today. Hopefully there will be more to come in the future as I am able to skate more.

You’ll see that I’m pretty wobbly in the end videos but I have this huge smile on my face. Some things never change.



Happy Skating and Happy Holidays!







Current Warm Up Exercise!

20 Apr

It’s been awhile since I posted and I thought why not begin again with a bang, a video bang! This is my current warm up for every skate practice. This video was taken in February 2014 so I think it probably looks a little better now then it did but like everything else in skating, it’s a work in progress! This pattern is actually part of the Adult Bronze MIF Test for those that are testing. I warm up with this and then I start practicing my silver MIF.
Happy Easter!
