Yeah, I was just kidding about that kissing up part. ....But I do think it is a good idea to maybe voulenteer at one of the clubs. Like Skittl said, it might be fun.
Actually...there is one coach who has been very nice to me (I took a few lessons from her early on when I first switched over.) She has even complimented me many times. I will definitely get her to review the MITF when I start and before I test (at the very least.)
After thinking about it for a while, (I'm home right now with foot surgery which is why I'm on the forum bothering you all so much. Got sick of watching Jerry Springer and dying to get back to the rink.), I'm willing to admit I was wrong.
When I go back, I won't be able to jump for a while...Perfect time to try this MITF stuff.
Guess if I had spent half the time working on the MITF that I spent trying to aviod them and complaining I'd probably be Masters level by now...
Btw, Are any of you guys/gals going to Lake Placid in August? I will be there for the first 3 days at least. (I can't get the whole week off work. Bummer.) I promise not to mention anything about dying swans and you can laugh at my portrayal of a maniacal, homicidal clown.
P.S. Don't worry, the foot surgery isn't from skating....Remember all those great looking pointy shoes and boots from the 1980s. The ones that pushed your toes together....Well, my toes never really straightened back out. Ouch!! I won't gross you out with the details.....but I had to get it fixed. Don't worry. Nothing skating realted.
