Well It has been a few weeks, like always so much has happened ! I had another competition it was horrible I injured my ankle badly the day I was supposed to leave ... saw my Dr. and he okayed me to tough it out... Needless to say thank God my mom came and drove the 5 hour drive because I sure couldnt have. I was in so much pain... and the next day was my competition I was NOT happy. ANyway, the next morning came and my ankle was not as bad as the day before... I just had a gut feeling though not to push it but didnt listen to that and skated for the practice (taped my leg) that was a bad idea the taping caused more pressure and pain so I removed it and was acutally able to jump painlessly but stroking was another story, and the end of the program practice during my footwork I re tweeked my ankle... OWWW Long story short... I went back that evening for my competition and was humiliated during the 5 min warm up because I couldnt do ANYTHINGGGGGGGGGGGG it all hurt too much... My coach gave me two options 1) get off and never know what I could have done and throw away the experience 2) go out put on a show and act like nothing is wrong... I chose option 2 ... I was sooo proud of myself because even though my program lacked my usual grace/ spunk/ and triples I went out there and landed my first double axel in a program and did a clean skate !!! I did get penalized for not having the triples but we knew that and weren't risking hurting my ankle further with triple attempts... I was so happy I competed in 1 event ( had to withdraw the long bc of sweeling) bc I proved that I am REALLLY tough and not afraid to go after my dreams. Since then 2 weeks ago my ankle is healing nicely still hurts but it only kept me off the ice for a week and a half so I am grateful. God is so good he uses our trials to bring out our best! Next week back to triples =) and run throughs.
Okay well enough of my chattering, I also created this post post because I made my first video ! I made it for the ten minute craft dash.. and boy is DASH a proper description of my last few seconds. I barely made it with 2 seconds left !!! I hope you enjoy... I was a little quiet bc I was pretty focused on the challenge and please excuse my crazy hair it was already close to 11pm... Anyway the challenge was to use a star !
I hope you enjoy ! This card too me 9 Minutes and 58 seconds. (really less bc I spent around 30 seconds dealing with the camera lol )
