On The Edge... Again
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.
It has now been 8 years since I got back on the ice. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1600 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Long Overdue Freestyle Lesson
This was my first freestyle lesson with my regular coach for months. I have so much to work on between now and MY competition season which is basically from March-April !!! Am I the only figure skater who HATES competing, but does it anyway to have something to work toward?
I love the idea of it. Getting a dress, choosing music, choreographing a program. But it is never enjoyable when I can't skate to my own expectations of myself. Serious flaw!
Todays' lesson was split in 2 segments. 1st part was jumping and working on correcting some problems with my take off position, landing position and edge control.
Part 2 was working on my backspin. Nuf said.
