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.

3 Fall Tuesday
Bought a new pair of Mondor shorts with padding in them. I put them on this morning and was so disgusted with how my already oversized hips looked even more "out there" that I took them off. I said to myself.. I won't be falling today.
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha...
First on my moves (which I spared you of sitting through) - had a blade click on the double three turns - BAM.
Second on my Flip jump, which is usually my strongest jump next to a Waltz Jump, BAM
Third on my Loop Loop combo (not seen) BAM.
Wish I had been wearing those ugly shorts!
Great session though. 3 of us regular ADULT FIGURE SKATERS plus a new girl and another new (younger adult .. 22) ... I wish we could encourage more of this at our rink. It's quite motivating to be on the ice with kindred spirits and arthritis ~!
