Since discovering a great rink that doesn’t charge for open skate, the girls and I have been ice skating at least once a week. I expected to see great strides in their skating confidence and ability, and I have, but have also been surprised that my own technique has improved.
Though I have always loved skating, my skills have been fairly rudimentary. Now, though, with all this practice (and with other accomplished skaters to watch) I have picked up some new tricks.
Today, with newly sharpened skates, a nearly empty rink and a bucketful of (misplaced?) confidence I embarked on a journey towards spinning. I’m no Nancy Kerrigan but I’m having a ton of fun!
It’s hard to see, but there’s a heart in my spin marks on the ice! (Can you see?)
