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.

Haven't Posted All Week

Sorry everyone.  I have had a terrible week.  After being off the ice for 22 days following Sectionals … I got back on the ice Monday and could barely skate forward and backwards.  I kid you not.

Tuesday was slightly better but I had such a lack of stamina and weak ankle .. sore this and that .. that I nearly threw in the towel for Nationals.  I skipped skating altogether on Wednesday and played golf …
That relaxed me and I returned to the ice Friday and skated both a public session alone and had a lesson with my choreographer on a freestyle session.

My stamina is gone (what little I had worked up to before Sectionals), but practice was good and I even forced myself to run my technical program with the jumps as they were choreographed.

So my next post will probably be after I get back from Nationals or maybe during nationals…

Wish I knew how to tweet!

Ta ta for now!
