So regionals was last weekend the day I had to skate Jimmy Blair handed me the boots he made for me and he and I talked for a minute or about twenty. We both decided I should wear them because my other boots had cracked carbon. I went out for warm ups and first I was all over the place but as soon as I settled down I skated good. for you to put on a boot for the first time and skate it at regionals and place second. I think all credit goes to a great boot maker in Jimmy Blair.
In other thoughts I just got back in from skating outdoors it was hot and brutal. Im using my Pinnacles for my first time outdoors. And for me its a lot mental knowing how far I can lean on the boots and all the good stuff. But the boots were very responsive I know its going to take me more time to fully 100% get use to them but for the time being I am very impressed and glad I have these boots.

At practice the other day on the new IQ Wheels I have the outdoor set but are floor isnt coated so we wear outdoor wheels. I ran a 1min 33 seconds it went well we ae still trying to get my start up so I can run the 500's and open up my start for the 300m and 200m outside so pretty much we are killing my legs with hill sprints and tube starts. Pretty much the final results is me wanting to die and my feet killing me!
The past couple weeks I really want to work on my 500 and thats it but we have been doing a lot of laps at practice like are warm up is 350 laps with right leg pushes and left leg holds. So we are building are muscle memory to know where are arm swings suppose to be and weight transfer and all that techniqual stuff AKA the stuff everyone hates but needs to get done. Always remember GO SLOW BEFORE YOU CAN GO FAST. I know I have to work on my left arm swinging all the to my nose and not lifting my legs above the cone. But thats what I am working on.
But I will be at home for a while I believe and just work on the basics and just a lot of skating and working on basics. I know I rather go slow right now and work on the things I need to then by the time Trials comes around hopefully I'll stay off injury and be able to fly! Thats my goal this year yeah indoor is there but indoor hasnt been fun for me lately now im really only focusing on outdoors and making team thats my mind set right about now...
