Giving me the stick.
This past Thursday Coach M. gave us the stick. OK, OK, she brought in several broomsticks to use during class to help improve our posture. No cheap jokes will be repeated on my part about how she rode in on one. I'm above that sort of immature humor. (Ta-Ta Boom!)
So anyway, here's the deal: you take a broom stick and first off, you grab it in both hands and skate with it in front of your body while doing progressives, etc. After doing that for a while you then graduate to placing the stick behind your shoulders and lacing your arms around it. The stick hits your backbone and reminds you to straighten up and fly right. No bonus points are awarded if you toe-pick and do a face plant. What will next week bring? I can't wait!
She must think my skating is salvageable-- she's pumping a hell of a lot of energy into me.
