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.

More Lessons More Progress ...

.... MORE FRUSTRATION !!!

The Axel lift and the Lutz lift are really giving us trouble.  We keep saying to each other "it's not you .. it's me" !!!  I am sure it's a little of both.  We are committed to getting it right.  I have seen ladies bigger than me get up there... so I know it can be done!  Also Hank is pretty tall.  Looks great on ice, but it actually seems to be harder to do the lifts.

Today we had some lessons both on and off ice.  We were both disappointed in our "performance" during the lessons.  Typical.
