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.

Spin Practice

Probably not what I should have been working on, but it's all I had room for today.  Plus the ice was pretty chopped up by the time I got there and there were clumps of fuzzy black glove threads embedded into the ice in a multitude of places that were freaking me out … even if they didn't trip you - it was distracting.  How is THAT for an excuse of not practicing very hard?
