Landed First Double Loop Since Surgery

The double loop has always been my nemesis jump, even before I tore my ACL. I tried working on it early March 2012 but it just hurt. The double loop is a jump where you take off on your right backward outside edge and land on your right backward outside edge so there's a good bit of torque on the knee.

I started working on it again a few weeks ago and today I finally had success. It only took 2 years 9 months and 21 days to land after surgery, but I finally did it!

Also, please note that my butt really isn't that big--I'm wearing crash pads.


  1. Wow, you're talented. Hope you continue to feel better.

  2. Look at you!! Lovely! Aaaaaand I really really want to go glide around on the ice, like now! I know I won't be able to do anything anymore, but whatever. Too bad the closest rink is 40 minutes away. Boo!

    1. Girl, forty minutes isn't that far. I say get in the car and go skate =)
