Completed 4.2km today! When I had physical education classes in high school, we had to run 2.4km for our fitness tests and I used to have so much trouble. The best I’ve ever done… is a borderline pass. But look where I am today. I think I’ve changed so much thanks to figure skating and yoga. :)
Here’s to a happier, fitter me.
Reblogged from my personal blog. :)
I just love this series of shots
HQ, but I’m sure Tumblr will make them smaler
"Since I’m no longer an active athlete, I don’t feel the rigors of training anymore. Physically and mentally I feel stable. Since I don’t have a job at the moment (lol), I don’t feel stressed or pressured. When I was a competitive skater, I would spend hours debating while shopping - putting down clothes I liked because I just thought I would never wear them. Now, when I see pretty clothes I think “I’ll wear it someday” and buy what I like. Currently, I’ve been really into watching romantic comedy movies. I haven’t properly sat down to really test my alcohol tolerance levels. What I know for a fact though is that I don’t get the “asian glow”! I’ve only tried beer but my face doesn’t turn red. I don’t think I’ve really been introduced to real alcohol yet so I guess I’m not positively sure."

this amazing layback spin position…

Snippets from today’s practice. Here’s my scratch spin again this time with the arms variation yay. Yes, someone is blocking half the spin but still. Here you also have me chickening out of a loop jump.
I’m supposed to be learning my sit spin, back scratch spin and loop jump but am currently at a standstill. I still can’t seem to sit, my back spins are not moving and I don’t dare to rotate my loop jumps. Argh. I tell myself it will come to me soon enough as long as I keep trying. But it better be soon because I don’t want to be stuck here for another few months please. :(
