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.

Practicing Bronze Moves In The Field

Here is a really boring clip of my practice today.  I muted the annoying music playing at the rink.

I skated #3 and #4 out of order.

1. Forward and backward perimeter power stroking
2. Forward power three-turns 
3. Alternating backward crossovers to backward outside edges 
4. Forward circle eight
5. Five-step mohawk sequence 

Here is a clip from the rest of my practice.  I didn't do anything that pleased me very much today.
