Hi everybody! As the holidays are ending soon, life is soon to return to normal: waking up at 6 o’clock in the morning, going to school and… going back to ice skating!
I am an ice dancer and I just love it! Ice dance is basically sweatless exercise in which you can wear beautiful dresses, instead of sweatpants. Unfortunately, I do have to wear ice skates which destroy my feet mercilessly, but I guess “pain is beauty”. ( < I don’t actually agree with this. It just happens to make sensense in this case)
I have been skating for about six years now, but I did free skating (which includes jumps) for about four years, but then I switched to ice dance. I came 12th nationally in solos in my first year of dance competitions.
Then, I spent one and a half years working towards the national competition in couples. We came 8th overall, which I was slightly disappointed with as my skating partner did not follow our routine properly but everything turned out alright in the end.
Ice skating may bring injury as I have experienced through concussion and falls, but it is possiblyour the best thing that has happened to me.
I think ice skating is a good way to pass the Christmas break, so even if it is late, keep it in mind for next year. Go ice skating with your friends and family, and even if you may come out a little bruised, I am sure you will have fun!!
Lots of huggles for all of my readers. Xxx
