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.


It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Three Turn Dilemma

It seems just about every aspect of my skating is going through a rocky period.  I’m not sure how to get back on track except to keep skating, taking lessons and following the advice of my coach.

I went out today alone to practice moves in the field but the three turn lesson I had last Friday has me over-thinking everything and feeling as though I am starting anew.

After a bit I just took off my skates and swapped them out for my figure skates - with figure blades to try and force myself to get on the edges while keeping on top of my blade.. You’ll see the result!
