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.

Skating Alone Is Not Enough ..

25 days before my test ...

I have known that my stamina wasn't adequate for testing, yet I haven't yet begun to work in gym time to my daily schedule.  I need to get on the treadmill and/or elliptical for 30 minutes and do some circuit work in addition to my skating and stretching at home.  That's my goal for the week.. to make time for everything.

I am still tweeking the choreography my coach gave me.  Trying to throw in a loop jump we forgot I needed and make up some time by cutting some connecting moves.  It's still a work in progress.
