Back To Basics

A beautiful empty Olympic size ice arena .. all to myself.  What better time to practice the fundamentals of figure skating. All my basic skills are hurting right now.  I know I can improve them, but it takes days like these of endless practice to make any noticeable improvements.




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.

Shamefully Back on the Ice After Another Month Off

  I finally snagged an afternoon public session to get back on the ice for the first time in a month! No lesson scheduled for the near futur...
