So. My second lesson has rolled around and it has made me discover both weaknesses and strengths with my skating. While I am picking things back up fairly quickly, I definitely need to develop my muscles nice and solid. We did most of the same stuff as last time as well as working on our stops which I am making progress in. Evidently my issue was keeping me feet apart. Squeeze all that stuff together and stand up straight and apparently things go much smoother!
So then, any tips on improving my posture? I have an issue where I tend to either lean too much or not lean into my edges at all. Both are bad habits that I have to break.
Also, I'm sore as all hell! Gosh dang. I wish I'd continued as a kid and not stopped haha. It's funny, I didn't expect these lessons to make me so...happy? I know it might sound silly but it really makes me smile and I find myself waiting in anticipation for the next time I get to go on the ice again. I can't explain why nor can I give reason as to why I'm enjoying it so much. But I'm genuinely glad I got back into it.
