And whatever you do, dont get discouraged. Every person Ive talked to whos quit hockey wishes that they never gave up on it.
I try. I usually skate at least twice a week, sometimes 3 depending on league games. Funny enough, today I had an hour private session with my Coach and didn't have to take a knee. I was wrecked for sure but I told him he wasn't breaking me down because about 6 months ago, my endurance was crap. One drill and I was sucking wind. I hadn't done a private lesson in a while after that just due to the sheer fact it's expensive and I was discouraged and had more fun playing open hockey. But, now the drills are fun because they are more hockey related then cruddy skating drills which can be quite dull. I'll probably do one or two more private sessions before the start of next season to really get going.
