The Amazing Feat Of Skating & Getting An Education

The idea for this post came to me as I sat here, on Sunday afternoon, aggravating my wrist tendinitis writing out some 50+ flash cards for my on-going university work. Yes that's right (or should that be write... hmmm) - I have given myself tendinitis through studying. Dedicated or dumb, I'll let you decide that one.

I was lucky enough to profit from IceNetwork's "Super Saturday" deal yesterday, and made the most of watching the ladies short program, and the end of the short dance events (I really need to get to grips with translating Eastern time into GMT...) from this year's Skate America Grand Prix.

How to: Know When To Stop


Stopping skating is a hard decision. Whether you are the skater, or the parent, the years of dedication (up at 5am when you really didn't want to anyone?), commitment (towards yourself, coach, and the whole entourage) and sacrifice (financial and emotional not to mention the fact you really could have used that money for a family holiday) are a lot to leave behind. It's a bitter pill to swallow. I've been through it. Sort of.
