On The Edge... Again
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.
It has now been 8 years since I got back on the ice. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1600 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

It's going to take some real dedication to get any strength, stamina, flexibility and skill set back.
I have talked about this before. For me .. without having to "answer" to anyone or anything (like a test date or competition looming) I tend to just wane off practice (is that a double negative?)
Tried some warm ups today, little jumps and a spin before coffee club.

Afterwards I tried a non-stop "run through" of the Gold MIF. Mind you these are nowhere near passing level yet. Sadly, the rink at EWU has lots of background noise so you can't hear my edges - so I just muted it and put some music on so you can pass the 8 minutes with a little Bolero!
Lastly I tried a couple passes at the Hickory Hoedown and the Willow Waltz...
Skated so slow on the HH I had to speed up the video to keep time with the music.

I'm glad I got out there and I did my best to warm up some things I am planning to conquer this year. Gold Moves In The Field and Bronze Ice Dances!
