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.

Eat Your Vegetables

You remember.  Dreading the peas or carrots or brussel sprouts and not being able to indulge in dessert unless you ate your vegetables......

... Well somedays due to fear, fatigue or failed previous attempts - the thought of warming up and executing all my jumps, at least once can seem like the dreaded vegetables.

Today was a crowded public session (for my rink) and all those jumps felt like vegetables.  I got on the ice without a camera because there were so many "wall huggers" I knew my camera would not survive.  After a while it thinned out a bit and I set up my camera.  Nothing went well today, but alas... I did finish my vegetables!
