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.

Summertime Skating Woes

Summer is usually difficult for adult skaters.  Where I live we have limited public ice that is not good for freestyle skating.  I try to hit 1-2 free style sessions a week - when I am home.  This year it seems I have been off the ice much more.

So far I have only skated 2 times since July 7.  I've just returned from another 9 days away. As you can imagine, most of the session was spent trying to "feel the ice" again.
