I did skip Friday so I thought I better find some ice today. Went to a nearby rink for their freestyle session. It's always a real mixed bag of skaters there. They had 4 coaches giving lessons and the club is new so the skaters are going every which way - some still in rental skates.
Nevertheless, I had an ok session. This is the rink I usually have a blade-click incident or take a header doing a spin. The ice was really bad today - but I just did my best to skate through it. It was really bumpy like they didn't lay a fresh sheet of ice and only scraped. I don't know anything about how to Zamboni.
I did not feel like I had a good session while I was there, but the video shows I worked hard! I was only on the ice for 45 minutes total.
Thank you Lake City Figure Skating Club for letting me skate.
And.... oh yea - I bought a SCRIBE today on Ebay. So excited I will be able to make a real circle to practice my Backwards Circle Eights with. I am also thinking about getting into the old school compulsory figures. They still have a rule book for them and judges who can test them... just not at my rink. I will have to investigate. They are really good for all aspects of your skating.
