I'm looking out my office window right now, and it's snowing up. All of the snowflakes are flurrying toward the sky. This will save me a lot of shoveling trouble tonight.
Well, vacation is over, and I had 2 skating practices yesterday. First a speedskating practice (which I hadn't done in over 2 weeks!), then a synchro (not for 1 week) afterward. I felt very out of shape, especially at the speed practice...I could tell I'd done very little exercise for the past couple weeks.
At synchro another girl and I collided during the back-lunge passthru and we both fell. I landed squarely on my left butt-cheek, which is precisely where I landed last time I fell. As I recall, it took about 1 to 2 weeks to heal last time. *sigh* It's not a major injury or anything, but it is annoying. Sitting is a little uncomfortable, and also any maneuver that uses that butt-muscle (standing up, sitting down, going up stairs) is painful. I tried sitting on an ice pack for awhile last night, but I think all that did was make me cold. Best to just try to ignore it...it'll go away soon.
