Me + Ice
I kept my expectations and efforts low-key. I mostly did swizzles, half-swizzles forward and back, and then just a little bit of stroking and 1-foot glides at the end. I wore my freestyle skates.
No lie, it was a bit scary at first. And of course, I'd forgotten how much boots can hurt when you haven't worn them in a while. This is the longest I've ever been off the ice since I started in 2003.
As for my ankle -- basically okay. It did feel a bit weak when trying a 1-foot glide on the left foot. Yuck. There will be a long way to go.
