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.

Trying to skate two sessions

 It's absolutely unimaginable to me how these kids can skate 3 to 4 sessions a day I honestly cannot recall ever having that much energy....   Maybe when I was 10 or 11 .

 First session working on my singles elements with the choreography lesson. We are still plugging away at this program which I am supposed to skate in about three weeks time.. probability of a scratch is very high !
