On holiday for three days to recover. And, frankly, just do nothing. Then I went to the gym at the hotel was the fitness center with gym equipment. Became involved, do exercises that we were told to run, jump, trained. Especially in the summer to relax it is impossible, even while on vacation.

I was surprised by my grandmother, who to watch out for my performances on ice, made friends with a computer. "Sitting" Now, in my group from Contacts, reading, watching - aware of everything. She told me that if she had not very good mood, it includes the entire volume of the sound of the computer looking at my YouTube rentals and starts to review them. After that, once all the changes for the better.
- Tell me how you met at the rink?
- I went there to see my younger sister, she is also engaged in figure skating. I did not expect, to be honest, so that the kids meet me! Immediately I was surrounded, pressed, and I almost fell down. They have been training, and because of all distracted me. And I said to them: "Let us deal with." Training time should be valued. This I have understood clearly for themselves.
- Your dad - ice hockey coach, for sure, is proud of your success?
-- Of course. And at the same time he says: "You, of course, well done. But we must go further, not to relax. " I have after each event that's a conversation. Home dad once took me to train. Coach has a coach.
- You are now in the collection in Novogorske, continuing sports everyday?
- But I try as best I can, to color your life. Recently I had a friend - a small chinchilla. I called her Haze. Who is talking to you on the phone, and she looks at me with his eyes, as if all understand. My grandmother brought her out of the house for a short while, but then I was very bored. From this lovely animal is a warm, I think that Haze will become the most favorite and devoted fan of mine.
