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.

Uneasy Saturday Practice

For some reason I never skate well at this rink.  The ice is always has a different feel to it.  Today it felt really dry and slippery.  Like I couldn't get an edge.  I began doing some Forward Cross Strokes from the Silver Moves and I was skidding.

Of course I did not do any off ice warm up or stretching and it was very cold inside.  This is the worst thing for me.  I know this, but continually do it.

My new years resolutions will begin the Monday - after New Years!

Nothing was really working for me today so I only took a few minutes of video doing some Loops and Camel Spins.
