Borrowed Ice ... in Fairfax VA

I’m here in Virginia visiting my son and grandson  for Thanksgiving.  Had some free time today so I signed up online for a 45 minute freestyle session at 10:15 am at the Fairfax Ice Arena.

I was fortunate there were only 2 other skaters on the ice.  Nice rink.  Soft ice and with a little overhead heat too.  Wish I had skated better.  I’m working on ice dance a lot but I don’t usually record that ... it’s so far away and the corners get missed. (Plus I am not looking too good!)

Coffee Club and Ice Dance Lesson

Today I started with coffe club with coach Kim. then stayed for public session with Hank (previous post) and skated part of a club session for an ice dance lesson.  We worked on the Willow Waltz today.


He’s Back ... for a Surprise Practice!

After coffee club Hank showed up to skate public session.  He probably wasn’t counting on me being there .. but he was sweet to oblige me and skate together!  He told me he has only skated 2 times since April.  Not bad.  I felt terrible while I was skating, but I think we did ok for not skating together for months.


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...
