A little background- I’m a 31 year old female who began skating (again) a little over a year ago. Now I’m in freestyle ¾ and really love it. But, last summer I fell when practicing a waltz jump and sprained my ankle pretty badly. This resulted in a decline of everything-I wasn’t able to run for over 6 mo, I picked up 15 extra lbs and it really made me scared to fall on the ice. I’ve worked to overcome it…slowly. I can do salchows and toe loops, but I’m really struggling with my loops and flips with getting off the wall. I’m also losing a lot of confidence because my body just isn’t doing what I want it to do anymore (especially with spins/sit-spins). Do you have any advise on how to get off the wall and get past this mental barrier? Do you have any recommendations on pads that wont inhibit movement with thick legs? Do you know any off-ice exercises that may be useful to help build up my confidence? Really, any advice would help!Thanks so much for all of your help!!!! I really appreciate it everyone!
