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.

Why Isn't This Fun?

I should be having the time of my life, getting ready for 3 competitions in March and April.  Instead I am dwelling on my aches and pains and skating below my capabilities.  I get all revved up at home, but when I get on the ice my body keeps failing me and my skating disappoints me.

No progress or improvements shown here …  just going through the motions getting on the ice
for the past two days.

Today I had an off ice lesson with my regular coach (since I was late!) We worked on doing all single jumps off ice - ouch!
