So it has been a long time since my last post on this topic… I could say that I’ve been busy which is true but the truth is that I have procrastinated this topic because I believe it is SO important and has made such a huge impact on my skating throughout pretty much my whole life that I really wanted to get it right.
Confession time: I’m more than a little obsessed with having hot oats in the morning.
How many times have you seen a talented athlete not perform their best because they fall victim to their own anxieties? How do you think they would have performed had they been taught how to regulate their emotions, thoughts, feelings? How many times has your coach (or you’ve stood there as the coach) told you to do the jump/step/sequence/spin again because you’re still making the same mistake and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t do it? If you’ve been in this situation, keep reading and you might just find out something you didn’t know before.
I’ve stopped skating now but I went to the gym today and trained back and chest. Was pretty chill. This of you wondering, I went to the YMCA for $5 for the whole week so pretty happy with that!
Today Mercedes had dance and short programme and I had freedance. Keep reading to find out who Serena is….
Official practice went well! A bit sleepy but just wanted to relax into the floor and not stress so mission accomplished! Today was busy so I’m pretty happy with how I kept it together. Definitely thankful I don’t have more than one event. Lots of food was eaten!
