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.

Another pairs lesson today. We had another 10 days off ice. Do not try this at home... training involves training nearly every day and not skipping days and weeks at a time.
Progress .... hmm. I wonder why we aren't making any? The video say 2-20, but it was actually 2-21.

We had a pairs breakthrough today. After more than a year of trying to get this lift up with a one foot take-off … Today it happened three times. It's not the prettiest lift as I still have not been able to master getting my legs behind me but this is a great start to progress .
