    Well my Friends!!!! I just got back from the Rink. So here is the Report...

    I got to the Rink at about 10 of 12. I checked in with my Passes,and went in to lace up my Skates. When I got on the ice,I praticed Skating Backward (I still can't figure out how to increase my speed when going Backward can anyone offer advice)? I also practiced my 2-Foot Spin,as well as my Edges. BTW. can anyone please tell me why I keep getting tired down on my waist when I skate?

    Remember to bend your knees while skating backwards and you want to shift your weight from one foot to the other foot. It takes some getting used to.

    And for not getting tired...practice is the only way and then you will till get tired...jut not as much. :). Skating is hard work..

    Ok my fellow Skaters.....here it is!!!!....

    I got to the Rink around 11:30 am. I went to the Desk and had my last pass marked off...so I'm now on my brand-new card pass. 10 passes each. I waited a bit and then went to lace up my Skates and put on my Gaurds. I then went in and got on the ice. I was the first one in. But Skaters eventually came in. We had music on today so I Ice-Danced about the whole time!!! I also practiced skating Backwards (I think I'm getting better). As well as a couple of Jumps (off of 2 feet),2-Foot Spins, and balancing on one Skate. I believe I got my foot up high. Considering my feet always want to just go back down. LOL,I think I did well today friends!!!!

    Well,hello again everyone!!!! Here I am again, back from Newington Arena with my Report....

    My Staff bought me to the Rink for about 11:45. I went in and checked in at the Desk with my Passes. I still hhave not found my other Gaurd. It wasn't in Lost and Found. So I just went in and put my Skates on in the Rink (we were in the Blue). The Zamboni was just finishing up. When I got on the Ice...I practiced putting speed on my 2-Foot Spin (I'm not really sure how to make my body actually Spin,rather then just turn around fast. As my arms are being useless in the going faster Dept.). As well as Skating Backward...and even some Jumps. Which I'm happy to Report...I'm getting higher on!!! I also did some more Ice-Dancing,and even watched some Ice-Dancers (or people just Ice-Dancing) pratice. We also shared the Rink with a Bithday Party. Please check back here often for more Reports. Thanks.

    Ok my fellow Skaters!!!...Here it is....

    MY staff droped me off at the Rink about 11:45. I went in and checked in at the Desk.They didn't deduct a Pass from me today. As there was an error the last time I went. I then went in, and put on my Skates (No,I still haven't found my other Skate Gaurd yet LOL.). BTW. just to let ALL Skaters know....It IS possble to Skate on half Frozen Ice in a Rink... As THAT is what we all ended up Skating on. As my Rink's Genuator broke-down,and only had enough power to half-Freeze the Ice!!! Which brings me to a word of caution from me.. FSWer (Dana), to ALL Skaters!! Please try and do your best,and DO NOT...I repeate..DO NOT let yourself fall on a Rink only half frozen!!! As I found out today that what you'll fall into is a great big PUDDLE!!! BTW. I must say too.that today I finally got one Leg up in a real Spiral holding onto the wall!! Though,it just very well could have been because the Ice WAS half frozen. LOL. Please keep checking back here for more Reports.

    Ok my fellow Skaters!!!!...Here is the Report...

    I got dropped off at the Rink by my Staff,went in to Register and sign-in at the Desk. Then went on the Ice. I practiced my 2-Foot-Spin,and tried lifting one Foot up to try one-Foot-Spinning. LOL,as I found,LOL...I still need to work on Spinning,balancing,AND lifting a Foot all at once. (BTW. I'm Left-Handed.Does that have anything to do with which Foot you lift? Also a friendly warning to ALL Skaters here!!!... Before going ON the Ice...please,please make sure that all your wallets,keys,etc.(if you need to take then on the Ice) are all succure in your warm Rink clothes (your coat,etc.)!!! As I had a scare today at the Rink,thinking I lost my wallet...and spent a lot of my Ice-time looking for it. (BTW. I still don't have workable Skate Gaurds. Just ones that were my spares my Staff have to put together. So I had to walk out FROM the enterance to the Rink,to the Desk in the Lobby with NO Gaurds. Is there ANYONE here that's had to do this that can please tell me if THAT much of just walking on Blades can ruin them? Or do I need to be doing it a lot more for it to happen)? Also will Sharpening help take care of ANYTHING that might have happened to the Blades?
    Anyway,we had a lot of fun,and I even skated over to try to help a little kid who fell. Please keep watch for my next Report!!!

    It depends which way you are spinning (clockwise/counter clock wise) to what foot to lift up, and whether you want to do a forward of backwards spin. Most people learn a forwards spin first, so if you spin counter clock wise (the way most people spin) then lift up your right foot.

    Walking on your blades once wont hurt them, just dont make a habit of it.

    Can you please explain how it all depends on the way you spin? BTW. I know that folding your arms in increases your speed. But how do you work yourself up to at least faster speed. Speed that is considered Spinning....not just Turnning around fast? BTW. I'm not sure. But I negreted to tell you all that yoday I may have landed on both my Blades...without falling!!! A 2-Footer!!! I guess you can say....I Landed it!!!!!

    the way you spin is exactly that, when you are spininng are you turning to the left or right?

    What did you land?

    you just need to practice your spins lots to spin faster.

    When you spin, do you turn to the left or to the right? If you turn to the left, stand on your left foot and pick up your right foot. If you turn to the right, stand on your right foot and pick up your left foot. This is for a regular one-foot spin, which is what you are working on.

    Learning to spin faster just takes practice. You're right about pulling your arms in. Are you bending your knees? Bend your knees before you start the spin, and straighten them as you pull your arms in. That should help some.

    You didn't hurt your blades by walking on them as long as you stayed on the matting. Never, ever walk on cement!

    So,any other type of flooring is ok? Just keep away from cement? BTW. how can you tell if you have a damaged Blade from a floor by looking at the Blade? Also,how do you maintain AND keep balance on one Foot,at the same time you are lifting one..while moving? I am now beginning on the 2-Foot. BTW. what do I need to practice in order to Spin faster?

    The only kind of flooring that is okay is the matting that the rink puts down. No cement, no metal, no hard floors of any kind. Don't walk outside on the sidewalk or in the parking lot.

    If you walked on cement or something like that you might be able to see where the edge is flattened out or rolled over, but the way you can really tell is when you try to skate on it. It might feel like you don't have edges at all. Your blade might even feel like it's slipping sideways. It might feel like you accidentally left your guards on. A sharpening will fix it.

    Balancing on one foot is actually easier when you're gliding on skates than when you're standing still. Make sure you start with your feet close together on two feet before you lift one up. Just pick your foot up a little bit by lifting your knee and putting your toe next to the heel of the foot you're standing on. Stand straight up on that foot - don't let your skate rock to the inside. You should feel like you're standing on the ball of your foot.

    Did you know you can practice spinning off the ice? If you have smooth tile floor where you live, you can spin on it in your socks. Make sure to clear a big enough area before you try this! You don't want to crash into things or knock things off of countertops or anything like that! You won't be able to spin as fast as skaters do on the ice, but you can get some extra practice in that way.

    Ok,I may have been walking on a Mat in my Rink,but I'm not so sure. (Is that the Flooring coming off the Ice)? Although,I'm not so sure what the Flooring out in the LOBBY of a Rink (were I went) nere the Desk is called. But I THINK I was only out in the Lobby on my Blades for about 5min...Is that hardly any time for anything to happen? BTW. if I should b able to see anything, like you said...what would it look like,and what would I be looking for? So,whenever I get my Skates sharpened..no matter when...should fix it if needed?
    So I should FIRST Glide up to speed,make sure my feet are together,and THEN just litle be little ...just...Lift my foot? How do I keep myself Gliding after lifting my foot? My Glides stop in mid-ice when I do it.

    If you were inside the rink lobby, I'm sure the flooring was okay to walk on. Any wear and tear on the blades from that wouldn't be anything you could see. Next time you get your skates sharpened it will take care of it, if anything even happened at all.

    I can't remember - do you have toe picks on your blades? Or are yours more like hockey skates? It makes a difference as I think about how to answer your question about gliding.

    Okay. Well, in that case, I wonder if maybe when you lift your foot up you are also shifting your weight on the foot you're trying to glide on. If you get your weight too far forward towards your toes, the bottom toe pick will drag a little bit and make you stop. Next time you try, make sure you're standing very flat on your gliding foot. Think about keeping your weight right over the middle of your foot. You could even think about lifting your toes up inside your boot. You won't really be able to do that in a stiff skate boot, but if you try, you won't rock forward on your toe picks and stop.
