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.
Update 2021. It has now been 9 years since I began adult skating. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1.76k subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Just A Regular Day Of Practice
On my last lesson my coach told me to change my jump landings so that I am not still "rotating". You have to be able to check your landings (stop the rotation) so that you can pick back for a combination jump. My waltz jumps are sometimes big, but they pull around and that keeps me from doing the Waltz-Toe Loop combination.
I did one today. I also did a Toe Loop - Loop combination I was happy about that. Also new on this clip is a little "ballet jump" and some connecting steps.
