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.

Early Morning FS and Lesson

Coaching during the summer is sporadic at best.  This was the only time I could secure with my coach this week.  I haven't had a lesson since before my FS test.

After a discussion on what my game plan was (taking my test program and turning it into a competition program) we got to work on my Flying Camel -

Basically I am doing a Waltz Jump and a Back Camel .. I need to turn it into a Flying Camel by being in the proper take off position (camel position) and by entering the "flying part" much later and landing in a certain place.

Video #2 is my lesson that was about 20 minutes today.  I cut out some bench talk and some wall work we did.  I did show all 16 or 17 attempts at the flying camel.
