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.

Short Practice

Today I donned a fitness band and a heart rate monitor while I skated.  I am still trying to figure out how to get a report out of it, but as it turned out I only skated 30 minutes total.

I don't want to sound negative, but I can feel the pressure of a looming test and the adult competition season around the corner and I have serious doubts about being ready or even passing my test.  Ice time will be limited due to the holidays and a skiing trip I am taking over Christmas.

I did a few jumps today but wasn't really feeling it.

Will post the results of my heart rate when I figure it out!
