It is once again that time of the year where we reminisce and take stock of events in the year gone by.
2006 has been quite a good year for me (skating-wise, at least). I skate with more confidence, the double Sal & double toe are feeling much better, I have experimented with different variations in spins and spiral sequences... I have learned a lot and overall, I am happy with my achievements in the year.
A look back at some events in my skating life:
I started this blog! It is proving useful in reviewing what has been going on this past year...
My various issues with dance.
A last-minute pairing, inspired me to try again.
I was later obliged to stop, but gave it a final shot - which failed!
I found out that I have a fracture in the spine! Fortunately, my back has held up very well throughout the year.
NEW and EXCITING
There are new things in my skating life
- Choreographed a new freestyle program (and practising it!)
- Put together my first "Artistic" program (within one month)!
- New variations for the combination spin, footwork sequence and spiral sequence.
To top it all, of course, my win at Mountain Cup 2006!
Not forgetting also that I am the National Champion in the Adult Ladies' category.
