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.

Update 2021. It has now been 9 years since I began adult skating. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1.76k subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Beginning The Push

I can't say peak because a week from tomorrow I'm going on a 16 day vacation.  I'm not complaining I'm very excited about my trip to Australia and New Zealand however my skates are staying home ... I didn't think it would be fair to my husband to spend my first time in a faraway land seeking ice time.

But the push back home has started to  gear up and try to turn this flimsy program into a competition program .... During.  My freestyle lesson today my coach found three places where I needed "extra steps" leading into jumps of course she's right but every  extra step I take takes another breath out of me ....

 Video today's a little bit longer and it's mostly raw footage ..

I also had a Pairs lesson later on today but our coach was using my phone to listen to the music and choreograph so no video just as well it was one of those days.

Tomorrow choreographer....
