Julia Lipnitskaia - SP - GpFinal 2013 Fukuoka,Japan
So I got to skate yesterday! But it’s more like a reward for myself after an exam thing because I still haven’t been able to sign up for lessons again. And since I didn’t skate for more than a month, I kinda spent the whole time getting my “moves” back. My crossovers/turns on my strong side are still pretty decent but the ones on my weak side kinda suck. Especially my left open mohawk. :( I did a few pretty decent spins too which is cool.
Btw, I got my lunges as low as my off-ice lunges yesterday! As in my knees are touching the ice! The thing is I can’t get back up from them. I’ll try to work on that but I won’t probably make it that low when it counts. Haha.
And yeah we shamelessly took some photos when it was like 5 mins before closing. We just loved the snowflakes decor!!! Too bad I didn’t get some action/candid shots because I was the one holding the cam. Btw, the rink closed 2 hours earlier than usual because of a hockey game, where in figure skaters play! Haha. I wasn’t able to watch but I saw some of them practice before we left. Haha. And those figure skaters make double jumps look effortless! it’s really something to see amazing figure skaters struggling with hockey skates. I guess I’d die playing hockey…. Hahaha it’s still on my bucket list though.
Pete Holmes skates with and casually threatens Gracie Gold and Max Aaron. So funny!!! :))
