Private Ice … For a Little While

 So today was a treat.  I mis-read the time for public and thought I was getting there 45 minutes late when in fact I was early.  And I was the only one on the ice for 30 minutes.  

I tried to break up the video today into segments.  

Part one is just me enjoying a warm up on private ice.

Part two is me running all the Adult Gold Moves in the Field in REAL TIME with no cuts, no comments and not retakes.  If I had to submit this for a “virtual test session” I would imagine it would be something like this.  I just skated all the elements .. come what may during each one and completed them in about 13 minutes with some gliding into position breathing breaks along the way… imagining my coach at the wall telling me ok .. they have taken their notes and are ready for the next element.

I know it’s not a passing test, but it was a good exercise for me to run them start to finish without stopping.  I think … I may have passed the Power Circles and the Back Eight but I think the Double Three Turns and Brackets would have failed.    Oh sorry… we don’t fail in figure skating.  A RETRY!

Part three is me attempting one go at each of my Pre-Silver Dances with my music FOB playing the music in the background and a run of my Free Dance … (by then the hockey players got on and kind of messed me up at the end … it’s supposed to be a sit spin.)

Last (regular) Dance (lesson) for the summer

Ok .. this is IT.  I’m off to the land of no ice rink for a month or so.  I’ll be back home a few times over the summer but won’t be able to...
