Today’s session began with the usual highs and lows of my intermittent skating skills. Camel and sit spins good, loop jump still cactus, blades slipping everywhere needing a sharpen. I hate how I can get all excited, thinking how I have mastered skill x, perform it consistently for several weeks, then suddenly it is just not there any more. Where does skill x go? Why does it then take several more weeks to relearn it? That is my loop jump. If you’re out there loop jump, please come home. I miss you!
