On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.


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.

Loop Jump + 1/2 Lutz

Practice today was a struggle.  My boots were not cooperating.  I couldn't get my laces snug enough to jump without pinching.  After 4 or 5 tries I finally stuck a glove in my boot and that worked.

Worked on my Flip Jump, Salchow and MIF for the upcoming test.  Landed my first Loop Jump today and attempted a Lutz Jump, but I only got a 1/2 Lutz out of it.
