@LRK ! Good to see you around these parts 😊

You're right, I think that's why I admire Plushy so much, I don't have that determination and self-belief. The slightest difficulty throws me off and if things are really hard I'll give up. If I start that is... negative thoughts throw me off...

Case in point reading your post made me smile, but then I immediately thought "I wish more people would see that as a good thing rather than being all 'Ugh, is that guy still here?' "

I need to take a Plushy-approach to life :laugh:

Actually, I'm very much like you - the description of yourself you gave, would fit me also.

What we must remember, however, is that Plushy isn't like us.

As for anyone expecting Plushy to crawl away into some obscure corner never to be seen or heard from again...

well, they better not be holding their breath.

I don’t care what anyone thinks, I’ll repeat what I said a million times in these forums: I definitely want him to succeed as coach.

Him succeeding will not only give other schools hope, but also give us more top level Russian skaters.

Would be a great thing to have 15 or 20 top notch skaters rather than 8 or 10.

Hello fellow Plushy fans!

Well it's been a super exhausting 6 days (only 6 😳) since the news dropped. Feels like forever

But as previously noted life continues at the Academy:

https://www.instagram.com/tv/COj64ZLKz1V - Working moments - includes my favourite activity, follow the Plushy :laugh:

At Casa Plush

https://www.instagram.com/p/COfpz41tJW1 - Plushy showing off Arseniy's new wheels. πŸ˜‰ Cute!

Hmm, I thought there might be more, but I guess not! Probably for the best, I'm super sleepy and can't concentrate :laugh:

Until next time!

Hello fellow Plushy fans.

Well, the Spring Camp at the Academy had begun

https://www.instagram.com/p/COuGNBJqcfk - Outside off-ice training in the sunshine, trust Plushy to have a soccer field handy :laugh:

https://www.instagram.com/tv/COunE9Nq-S1 - Our favourite activity! Follow the Plushy!

Looks like Plushy has grown a beard! I'm not sure what to make of this development. Perhaps he's doing "the new style, new you" thing after all the unpleasantness.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CO3FSSQoux_ - Sasha P working on off-ice jumps at the camp. Impressive!

There's other stuff but I should post that in the Academy's general thread.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CO0ds7cIkI5 - This is too adorable! Apparently Arseniy's nickname is "Director" and he tells everyone else what to do :laugh:

In other news my fish tank water finally passed the test so I was able to get a new Betta fish. I think this is like Fishshenko the 7th but who knows...

Until next time!

Hello fellow Plushy fans!

Hope you're well! Alas I have a sore throat and runny nose so I've had to stay home from work and get a COVID test (my nose is still itchy!)

So while I'm lying down I might as well bring some links!

Plushy working the fishing rod, only it's more like a pulley. :biggrin: This was at least a septuple Axel!
I believe this was the original "fishing rod" Mishin designed. I read an interview where he mentioned people thought he was nuts when he first used them because it looked like he was training circus acrobats rather than skaters.

And a septuple axel! :laugh2: Just imagine the base value for that.

Anyway, hello Fellow Plushy fans! I live! My cold is finally being overthrown by my immune system and I can think clearly. :)

The Spring Camp continues! (Actually I think it finishes today the 22nd)

Wow, these look like top notch facilities! It would be so awesome if AoP did some summer camps for adult skaters, I would love to spend a couple of weeks there and train with Plushy. :love2: Mind you, I would probably get so excited, I'd lose the ability to tie the laces of my skates or something. :biggrin:

Ha ha I know! I bet I'd do something silly like screech "OMG...It's yooooou" at him for like an hour :laugh: Also I can't figure out how to skate backwards and I'm scared to fall down so I'm not sure if get all I can out of a Camp.

But! I feel personally called out by this post from Plushy:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CPLgdJ0qw2j - "Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and think of what could go right"

I should print that out and stick it on my wall at home and work.

Anyway! Hello fellow Plushy fans! I hope you're all well. My cold is striking back which seriously stinks because I was supposed to have lunch with my grandparents and parents today (luckily my little bro can go in my place), plus it's Monday tomorrow and I want to go to work, but I certainly won't be able to if I'm sneezing and sniffling all over the place ☹️🀧

Ahem, enough about me though, this is Plushy's FanFest!

Well that's all for now, until next time!

Hello fellow Plushy fans!

Well, I'm still stuck at home sick, although I'm going to the doctor's this afternoon because I don't seem to be getting better at all 🀧 I miss my library work.

On topic I also missed Sasha P in a competition yesterday!

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CPOG4UFoyPK - Gotta love an ice rink with a potted palm tree in it. And more importantly, very nicely skated! I do love that Pirate costume! Also the opening jump sequence gave me a laugh. ;)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CPNqjjOAXfN - Sasha won his group :clap: From what I can figure out from Google Translate this is the last performance of Pirates, which is sad since I liked it a lot! But I'm intrigued to see what Sasha does next.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CPOOt2LKFKv - Sasha getting ready to skate, Coachshenko holding the tissue box is everything TBH. :laugh2:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CPOdMtwBdfL - Some photos of Sasha skating.

Congratulations to Sasha P! πŸ€—

And now I must be off, my mother is coming over tomorrow afternoon so I better make sure my apartment is clean.

Until next time!

Obligatory "true artist", "tsar of the ice", "other coaches could never..." comments here :laugh:

Hello fellow Plushy fans!

Hope you're all well as we head into June, here in Aussieland it's getting chilly, I had to wear three layers today!

I'm a bit let down because the Plushy thread over at the FSO Cool Board has been locked due to bickering. Very strange bickering, there was like one poster who took serious exception to Plushy's fish pond (no lie! How bizarre and random is that? I started to wonder if they went to the fish shop after Plushy and found that he'd bought them all and was put out or something :scratch2:) and went on about it.

Anyway! On to more interesting things!

Coachshenko content

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CPabti7qmF8 - More footwork fun :)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CPcyXWqKvu4 - Warming up off ice in the sun

https://www.instagram.com/p/CPdpigTK-ZP - Another benefit to owning your own rink! Plushy brings out the green Porsche πŸ’š and hey! The big Plushy posters are there ☺️

Meanwhile, the Angels are hard at work!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CPng6AdK5ne - These are some impressive lunges! I still can't figure out how Plushy can do them, he's not supposed to have any knee cartilage left!

https://www.instagram.com/tv/cppha1mqvib - Warming up in the studio - according to the caption there's some roller skaters from Spain at the Academy this week.
