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.


Update 2021. It has now been 9 years since I began adult skating. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1.76k subscribers. That’s just crazy!

This Weeks Skating. Practice. A Lesson. Another Practice

I’m getting too busy to break down each days practice into an individual post.

This week I skated just twice.  And I had NO ICE TIME since the last lesson.  

But I did get a chance to warm up nearly an hour before my lesson with John Saitta.

We worked on the exercises and elements from the previous week.  I seem to be making baby steps of progress but it mostly feels like 1 step forward and 2 back.

Video #2 is my lesson
