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.

Adult Pairs Day 2

Wednesday is my ladies golf league day so I was late to the rink.  We managed to pop off a few "experiments" as we get to know each other and learn to trust each other.  I think it's gotta be easier for Hank because he has been to the rodeo twice before with other partners.  I am so grateful and happy to let him take the reins and teach me how to do this stuff.

Today we tried side by side jumps:  Waltz, Salchow, Toe Loops, Loop Jumps, Flip Jumps and a Split-Flip - and some spirals.  Also Hank introduced me to the wonderful world of the Throw-Waltz Jump.
(I probably acquired my first of many to come .. bruise)  I was full of questions.. "how do you do this?  how do you do that? ...

We laughed at the end of the session.  "Well" we said... "So far so good" ... "no fights and no injuries"
