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.

Ok Now Were Getting Serious....

So test date is approximately 1 month away.  I really want and need to pass my Silver Free Skate Test if I want to skate up at next years Adult Nationals and if I want to skate Silver Pairs with Hank .. if we get that far.

I had practice today plus a lesson after I already ran the program 2 x - I felt beat to a pulp when I was done but it's good feeling afterwards to know you have pushed yourself.

Today my lesson focused on my stamina.  Not working on any one part of my program but ALL of it - only broken down into 3 sections.  We would run part 1, then I would rest for about 15 seconds then continue .. like interval training.  Maybe it will work.  Maybe not.
