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.

I'd Walk A Mile For A Camel..

Really frustrated today with my Camel Spin.  It took 12 tries before I got one worthy of even posting.

Last night I went to a class at my gym called Barre Fit.  Guess what?  No barre.
That means we did it all while balancing - like ballet in centre (ouch)  I was so sore today
after all the Pliés,Tendus, Revelés, Rond de Jambes, Glissades, Dégagés, Battements.

My coach was on the ice with another skater so there was no getting by with not trying.  She didn't say a word but I know she can see whether or not I am working hard.  I did my best..

Had fun with Heather learning how to do Lunges putting the knee down and turning on the ice (in a slide).  I needed a knee brace however .. as kneeling hurts both my knees.

Golf tomorrow.. a day off the ice!
