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.

Update 2021. It has now been 9 years since I began adult skating. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1.76k subscribers. That’s just crazy!

I decided to isolate the figures I was trying at the end of my session onto a video all by itself.  Open for critique .... but I reserve the right to dodge any tomatoes!

  1. Nice to see you back at it! And trying loops! I wish I had some advice, but I can only do back loops at this point and they have gotten much better since I discovered I could do them...so no tomatoes will be thrown :) Actually my coach has been throwing tomatoes at me because I've been ending my back Mohawks in back loops when I need to hold that back edge (while practicing them around goalie crease)...need that strength...so hard for me...but I will not let it stop me...and I will master it...

    New skates broken in, Bronze MIF about 55% there, and looking to take my Pre-Bronze FS in May...gotta keep it moving! :)

    ps-nice program run all things considered. You will get it back!
