Still alive and skating just busy with school. Throughout Summer school, I haven't been able to keep a consistent schedule to go to Public Sessions and practice. However, as the lessons continue, I've learned various advanced techniques that need a lot of attention and time to perfect.

The intermediate class has shrunk down to two skaters, myself and one other. The intimacy of our class size is nice and allows better critiques.

However, I've missed a few lessons on the scheduled day for various reasons.

Lunges, one foot snow plow, and crossovers (front and back) I feel are uneven except for the 3-foot turn. Whenever I manage to get time on the ice, I've been practicing both feet. It helps to be "bold" and just try out the other foot.

Spirals are a new balancing act that I just learned yesterday and it feels like there's a huge weight attached to my free leg.

There's still much to learn about the physics behind the sport and my body but I'm enjoying it. Painful as it may be sometimes, it's still pretty damn cool.
