Street Shoes on the Ice
Street shoes on the ice are bad because they bring dirt onto the ice. The dirt in turn wears down skates faster.

Skating and health
Prior to skating, I was involved in a dozen or more sports. I emphasized one per every couple of months with a couple of others in the background. I rotated these with the season since many ...

insured my skates!
Today we set up homeowners insurence on the new house. One of the questions was about athletic equipment. I explained I had two pairs of figure skates and two pairs of inlines - so our age...

Pre-Medication for Gimp Knee
Tried taking a 400 mg dose of ibuprofen before skating today, to see if it might help to keep gimp knee from getting too sore. Seemed to work, to an extent; knee was fine through 1 hour warm...

UK roving rink reporter visits Cardiff
Well here we are for a night in Cardiff, S Wales, chosen because it was nearest rink to our holiday destination. What a strange place to skate public sessions. Our family of 5 went out on...

Butterflies and deathdops

Almost went skating today
Knees are beginning to feel better, and wifey found a goat show in Spokane. Dropped her off with the goat-people, and headed over to the rink without calling ahead. Naturally, the call-...

I suck... no, I mean, I rock!
After an hour of trying hard to do simple things - backspin, back outside 3, etc. - I got frustrated today. I yelled, "I suck!" (half kidding, half not). My friend, F, whom I admire for her ...

moves and figures off the ice
The house we are buying has a pretty large, flat drive way, about half the size of a rink. It's gotten me thinking about working on moves and figures in my driveway, especially since gettin...

Simple pleasures
Spent this evening doing my usual practice at our little rink. Same as I've done for months. Refine the balance in the edge change. Try to get some rotation into a beginner 3 jump. Turn a ...
