Skating without candida

I am even better today than yesterday. I skated relatively fast  for about an hour this morning. I never felt out of breath or shakey. I didn't cough all day. I thought - this must be how an athlete feels.

Now I've got the hang of skating forward I have to get back to skating backward. It's all about building up the necessary muscles, developing muscle memory, and getting a better sense of balance.  Takes a bit or courage and lots of practicing. Too bad there will be 2 week break in the schedule over the  Christmas holidays. Oh well, as long as my breathing is OK I can get it back again.

I felt so fine, I decided to look up candida on Wikipedia.  Here is a picture of candida albicans:

It's sort of how I imagined it - though I don't know if I actually have that strain and even if I do I hope it is no longer there. It's actually quite a nice design - almost like a bridal bouquet.. Maybe I'll do a heavily textured all white painting based on it. Yes, I think I might. I haven't done any painting a for a few days and it's time to get back to it. I could use the beading gel to make the little yeast cells.
