Our Pairs Debut

It was far from perfect, but we walked away very happy from our first public appearance as RUDNICK/LANDIS -

Our coaches were happy and excited for us, people cheered and clapped and I somehow managed to smile from start to finish.

Now it's back to the drawing board for a Silver technical program for competition in March and April.

We must learn a lot before then: an Axel lift and/or Lutz lift, a Death Spiral and/or a Pivot Spiral and we need to strengthen our fundamentals.

I'm feeling excited and looking forward to the hard work ahead.

Thank you coaches: Chris Anders and Berkley Villard.

And of course Hank Landis......I couldn't do it without you!!

I Have Been Slacking ....

My blog posts are getting erratic.  I have been having some issues with iMovie and my computer storage and memory and so getting my videos to the blog have been few and far between lately.

Still skating 4-5 days a week.  Working on mostly pairs with Hank but I got on the ice at 6:00 am today to ice dance with my other partner (how lucky am I?) Mike.

We are still on the Dutch Waltz -
As you can see we are not on the tempo of the music, but it was fun to get out there and give it a try today .... 6:00 is BRUTAL for me!

Shamefully Back on the Ice After Another Month Off

  I finally snagged an afternoon public session to get back on the ice for the first time in a month! No lesson scheduled for the near futur...
