I only started skating a year ago. A few months ago, I felt like giving up. I felt as though I wasn't making enough progress fast enough. So many people at my rink who had started skating after me were doing so much better. I couldn't hold my spins. I felt like my jumps were wobbly. Then, I decided to watch a documentary following Yuzu before Pyeongchang.
I was so inspired. He works so hard to achieve his goals, and here I was, going twice a week and thinking that I'd have such rapid improvement. I started exercising more (admittedly, I gave up on that after a while. But I'm planning on finding a time every week to go to the gym), I bumped up my rink time from 1.5 hours twice a week to 3 hours + whenever I wanted to go, which ended up being almost every day.
I saw so much improvement. Even in just one week, I was able to get my mohawk-entry salchow down, and though the technique isn't completely right, I landed my toe loop! My one-foot spin got better, and I even talked to my coach about entering a competition in March. I started watching my diet, too, and working on more off-ice exercises.
It was all because of Yuzu. I'm so proud to be a fan of such a hard-working, amazing man. Get well soon bby!
