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.

Best Way To Beat The Heat!

It has been extraordinarily hot around these parts for the past few days.  Today was no exception.  Officially I think it was 98 degrees, but my car said 102 in some places.

After golf this morning (yes I played golf in the heat -- and I walked the 9 hole course) I decided to go skate for an hour to "cool off".

Company coming tomorrow for a week - Not sure if I can get on the ice again for a week.  I may have to sneak away, just to get some ice time.

Worked on jumps and even some jump combinations today and of course ... the back spin.  Which, I must say is showing signs of light at the end of the backspin tunnel.
