Second lesson back and I was excited. At least until we all had to do crossfoot spins. At first I was like, 'Oh no!' in my head. But then I thought, 'It's better off for me to try today considering I'm actually being taught the steps to it.' So, I got up all my courage to try the spin again.
It was okay. I didn't fall over. Slowly, I got used to it. Even though I was close to falling over a few times, I still practiced my spinning. I'm actually pretty proud even though I didn't ace it. I'm proud because I persisted in spinning despite falling over so shockly last week. I'm pretty proud. ^^
My first lesson as a Freeskate 2 figure skater was okay. All we did was outside pivots and a little bit of outside spirals. So, first lesson was easy on me. I'm glad about that~~
Unfortunately, during public skating I was trying crossfoot spins without even being taught how to do it first. So then, I slightly lost balance during the spin and quickly tried to put my foot back. Because I retreated my foot too quickly when I lost balance, I fell over and stratched my leg. OUCH! I kind of got nauseous after looking at the scratch, not because of sight of blood but more likely because I got suprised from the fall. Although, my wound wouldn't stop bleeding, so I guess in a way the blood made me nauseous.
It was a a bit of a big wound but not that big. So I was fine after that. I would have kept skating but then I had to leave. I might as well since I was at the rink for 5 hours already. I had a good rest when I got home. I'm glad about that. :)
