It’s been two months since I skated at my home rink in Spokane. I showed up this morning at Adult Drop In Coffee Club. Our regular coach Kim was away so she had one of our figure skating club’s alumni skaters stand in for her. I didn’t get on the ice till the last few minutes so all I had time for was a little stroking lesson.
I’m skating pretty slow and cautiously right now. I spent about 30 minutes working on the Hickory Hoedown Bronze Ice Dance - off camera before capturing a few of my last minutes.
My weight is really making it hard for me to do freestyle. I need to shed 20lbs - perhaps getting on the ice more regularly will help hand in hand with that.
