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.

Skating With Friends

Skated at Frontier Ice today with my friend Sheila, who is breaking in her new boots.

I know everyone is getting really sick of hearing me say how TIRED AND SORE I am ... so I will
try to keep my whining to a minimum.  Yesterday I did a little extra - played a 9 hole round of golf after skating and this morning I walked and then did about 30 minutes warm up and barre work before heading to the rink.

Did it help?  Yes and no.  I felt more "ready to skate" but a little more sore and the jump rope takes it toll on my knees - but what the heck...
