First slalom session of the year today. Given my absence from this style of skating for most of last year due to the marathon it was obvious I was going to feel rusty. I made a little progress with the 'special,' and 'j-turn,' today but given that I was taught it nearly 3 years ago I would have liked to have nailed it by now!
Whilst overall slalom progress isn't great it was really nice to hear that my friend Gio said he "started slaloming after being inspired," by me! He's been slaloming a while now so hearing that now I was quite taken back by that, made my day.
