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.

It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Sunday Practice

Normally I take the weekends off.  Now that I have deadlines and major goals to accomplish I have to get in as much ice time as possible.  My friend Heather was there which made it nice.  She will be competing in March as well in the Adult Bronze II category.

No major accomplishments today, but I think I have realized that I am going to forego any thought of putting a Layback spin into my technical program.  I don't care what it's worth.  My back is really sore from trying and I think I will tell my coach today to change it to an attitude spin.  I would rather do a good attitude spin than a bad layback.
