Question by ツHannahbelle Carmela♥: PLEASE!!! How do I get my flexibility back?! :(?
Okay well I’ve been Ice Skating for years, and it’s my LIFE! I’ve never gotten below second place in any competitions and almost all of my best friends skate with me.
But about six months ago my mom found out that she might have ovarian cancer, they performed surgery and removed all of her reproductive organs, but it cost a fortune. Then like not even a week after that, she bashed her elbow on concrete and had to have some kind of plate thing or something removed? I’m not sure but that cost a bunch, too.
With my mom not working, my brother off to basic training, and my dad also sick at the time, we couldn’t afford to pay the $ 900 per month that it was costing for me to ice sate plus the private lessons and accessories && I had to stay home to take care of both of my parents, and I’m in all honors classes, volunteer at my animal shelter, in my drama troupe at school, and take piano and flute lessons.
So bottom line, I had to quit skating for about 6 months and I’m not as flexible. What can I do to get back in shape FAST!!! Also, I’ve gotten rusty at my triples && my double salchow. What can I do to improve those again off the ice?! Because I don’t get as much ice time as I used to, I got a job until my parents get well so I can support my own extra-curricular activities because I know how expensive I am.
How can I stay in shape and not get rusty off-ice?!?!
Thanks in advance♥
(Sorry I left so much detail as to why I’m out of shape, I hate it when people on here are arrogant and leave answers insulting me and calling me lazy, so I always have to put why to not get yelled at…)
* Thanks again && sorry 🙂

This probably won’t help much but stretch everyday for 45 minutes for flexibility and start ice skating again ASAP. I;m not sure about what to do about the triples but you should be able to get those back pretty fast if you had them. Don’t do competitions for a little while so you can get back in shape. Good luck!! 🙂
