Pushing Myself

I clocked another 3 miles of running by Alamo Creek this morning. I needed the cardio after my deep-fried eating fest in Stockton this weekend.

Last week, I landed my axel at Vacaville Ice Sports. I felt like a rock star. I also feel like I’ve made so much progress since I first stepped on the ice in Topeka. When I was competing, this jump was my Achilles’ heel. It messed with my head and it took me forever to master it. About three years, I think. But it also serves as the basically building block for more difficult jumps. After landing the damn thing, I was able to move on to those jumps and more.

I think I’ll managed to get all my double jumps back after this. I’m super happy with last weekend’s sharpening job on my blades. I thought it was worth the 1 1/2 drive to Novato. (yes, Mark drove…but that’s not the point!)
