Back on the ice ...

We had a nice practice today after a full 10 days off the ice due to my cold/virus/flu and trip to Scottsdale to judge. I'm still coughing but able to skate. We did a good free dance run through sans lifts and sans music (skating at a public session so couldn't play the music). We worked on the lifts outside the program and they worked nicely, although we're going to need a stopwatch to make sure we aren't heading for an overtime lift deduction.

I know if I say what I'm about to say I may jinx it, but my hips feel really good. Maybe it's because I've been off the ice for a while. Maybe it's that I've been lifting weights. I know better than to think I'm magically cured, but it's nice to feel like I can get through this season.
