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.

Pairs Program 4 Weeks Before Nationals

Well, singles isn't going well for me today. My coach now tells me every jump needs to be fixed. I have a bad habit it not keeping my left arm in front before jump take off in ALL jumps. It's like staring over... Being at the wall and doing jumps from a standstill already gave me a few bruises on the bum.

Meanwhile in the pairs corner - Hank and I have been making progress on getting our Axel lift in the air. The video today is a piecemeal layout of our program.. Dubbed over with our music. We have not done a real run with music overhead yet.
