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 8 years since I got back on the ice. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1600 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Yup .. skated today

I really can’t motivate myself to write about my skating without evidential proof!

Today I skated about 50 minutes of a 1 hour freestyle session filled with 12 skaters.  Most of whom are of the high level - doing doubles and a few triples.

I did my best to stay out of their way whilst trying to warm up, stroke, practice dances and moves in the field.

Looking forward to getting my old public sessions back where I can vlog about my boring practices!
