Clawing My Way Back

Okay, so that title is a little overly-dramatic.  I skated for 30 minutes today at the Chandler adult skate.  I saw Danette and Hannah and best of all, coach Lynne!  We had a nice little chat as I was getting my boots on (she had just finished Hannah's lesson).

So, today was a bit better than last week.  I did more alternating half-swizzles forward and back, and then graduated into actual stroking.  No real pain, mostly some discomfort from the boots but really not an issue.  Slow but steady progress.  I need more ice time but right now I don't want to be on a crowded FS session.

Next week... crossovers?
