So this is actually my 3rd go-round w/the ice skating lessons. The first time I got pretty good but I think I stopped cause I got a different job and I couldn’t make it anymore. Problem w/skating is theres a limited window of time when you’re allowed to do it.
The second time, after I moved to Columbus and got a job by an ice rink, I was going on my lunch hours. Took me one six-week unit of lessons to remember all the things I’d forgotten how to do and I was back to where I left off. But then my work moved across town and I couldn’t get there anymore :(
So this third time I’m not surprised it’s coming back pretty quickly. I still belong in the beginner class, but this one I’m in now is HUGE and full of adults who are just starting for the first time. I’m rusty but I’m not clueless so I spent a lot of time today in class waiting for other people to finish things that didn’t take me long and watching the intermediate people learn stuff I used to be able to do.
Thing about ice skating is it’s all about practice.
I need more practice. But I wish I didn’t. I miss being able to do that stuff. Hopefully it won’t be long before I’m back there again. Since I’ve lost/gained those skills once before I’m pretty sure it’ll come right back. Did last time.
