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.

Has It Been Another Month?

Just returned from a relaxing 2 week vacation on a Carribean cruise.  Great fun, but if you have ever been on a cruise you know....   It's all about the food.  Yes there was a gym onboard and I did go there maybe 5 times over the 14 days.  I brought my IT band and jump rope and flex cord, did a few squats and some time on the elliptical but that didn't make up for the untold calories consumed in food and drink.

So the scale says +5.  Not bad, considering.

Today back on the ice for the first time was really weird.  The ground is still moving somewhat from still having sea legs ... so I wondered how it would feel skating.. and attempting a spin.  I took it so slow my practice felt like a learn-to-skate class!
