On The Edge... Again
Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.
It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

That aside this week two great things happened.
1. Adult Drop In Coffee Club restarted with a new regular coach - which will free me from needing to be there each week and the worry of trying to find a coach each week. Plus our rink is going to let the Coffee Club skaters stay for free on the public session right afterward.
2. I had my first ice dance lesson with Kendall Tupper-LeClaire. She is our rinks’ only ice dance coach and she left a few years ago to take a break and start a family. I’m so excited that she is back (even if only part time) as I felt I just could not make any headway with ice dance without a regular coach.
So here’s a few snippets of both!

That is the longest break I have had since I got back on the ice at age 52 (I’m now 58).
First impressions: RINKS ARE COLD
Second impression: MY FEET HURT
Third impression: THIS FEELS WEIRD AND UNNATURAL
But ... the hour went well. I vowed not to fall and I tried everything I felt I could handle for day 1.
I feel good about it.

Heather does an amazing job of getting everyone doing something .. together .. in 30 minutes! And the catch-up pinwheel at the end was a 1st for me!
What? Ok... happy to get off moves for 5 minutes. I need to be softer in the skating knee and close my hips ... )(*^&*&% damn hips ... a problem everywhere!
