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.

Another Ice Dance Class and then A FS Choreography Lesson


My camera didn't focus on the the ice dancing portion, so I just skipped posting a video.  We just went over the pattern and especially the end pattern of the Dutch Waltz today.  It was 7:00 am.  That is WAY TO EARLY for me to skate.

Right after that session was over I met with Noreen, my choreographer to help me "clean up" my arms and footwork in my Silver Test program.  I was pretty pooped, but I got through 2 + runs.

My camel spin was awful today and my sit spin went on a hiatus.... old reliable .... I couldn't believe it.
