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.

What I Learned Today


  1. When you get a cold you should take a few days off
  2. Public sessions when school is out are a waste of time
  3. I  definitely do not like Thai food 
I  attended my regular public session today with a friend.  We spent most of the time gliding along and chatting and dodging the kids tearing up the ice with hockey skates.   I tried a few spins and a few jumps, but was really out of breath and dizzier than usual.  I think my cold must have settled in my chest and lungs.  I plan on taking the rest of the week off the ice.   I can see now that summer is going to be a challenge to skate during public sessions.
