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.

Frontier Ice Arena - Coeur d' Alene ID

Short clips of my practice today.  Seriously behind schedule.  15 pounds to lose and a lot of strength to gain.  On the other hand, I was happy with my backspin.

I couldn't do much in the way of jumping, but I tried running parts of my program.  Changing out the sit spin in the beginning to a backspin for testing -- potentially in 1 month.

Weird looking spread eagle...
