Today I went to another general skate session, and I realised that I still have all my old knowledge of how to skate, but confidence is the only thing that brings it out. Half the time my strides were uneven and my stops sucked, but then I started telling myself that I could do it - and in fact USED to be able to do it all - and suddenly I was back up to my old level. The crossovers were smooth, my speed was good. Two-foot stops. Even the figure skaters were suddenly looking at me like, "what the hell? This girl has been here the last week, and she's suddenly got it??" Haha!

I felt pretty damn proud of myself. Now that I know I still have it all backlogged from 5-6 years ago, I just have to keep skating regularly and slowly extract it back out of myself.
