    Hiya everyone!!! Before I begin I just thought I'd say that if you all feel ok with me doing it...I feel very comfortable with using my actual name in my Reports now. As I feel I can now trust you all....So here it goes....

    My Staff dropped me off at the Rink a few min. before Noon. I went in and signed-in at the Desk,and then went in to put on my Skates. I practiced some Spirals off the wall. As well as lifting me foot up in back of me. The way some Ice-Dancers do...As well as praticed lifting one Leg up in front of me. I must say that concentrating on Lifting your Feet or Legs up (AND) finding Balance on one foot at the same time is surely hard to do!!! BTW....HELP!!! I still am not able to get my Skates tied tightly to my Feet. I'm not sure for how long they were (if I was Skating on them). But today getting off-Ice I found my Right Skate Laces completely untide!!!! After tying them!! Can anyone please help?!!!

    Adding - do you know how to make bunny ears when tying shoes? How you wrap one under and then through?

    There is a great way they won't come loose. At 56 seconds on this link you wrap the bunny ear - not once like the video but TWICE. It will be secure and not come out until you are ready for it to come out.

    Say,btw. does anyone know how to help me go into a rotation after Jumping? As well as how to prevent a delay between what I do on Ice? I am believing that Rotation has something to do with wrapping your Legs around each other. Can anyone confurm this and help me? Thanks.

    FSWer, skills on the ice are usually taught in a particular order, because the skills build on each other and each one gets you ready to do the next thing. Based on what you've told us about your skating so far, you aren't ready yet to safely be trying jumps with rotation. You're still trying to find your balance on one foot. There are many other skills you need to learn before you can start jumping. Please don't try it without proper instruction. You can hurt yourself trying to copy other skaters without understanding how to do the move correctly.

As my laces have come undone a lot. Fortunately I have a Freestyler who helps me out on occation. I also took on another Partner 1-handed today!!! It was good to have Music again today.

    Hey Dana, I just had a thought. You've been skating for about a year now. Have you ever had your skates sharpened? It might be time to get them done, to make sure they're not sliding around.

    You want to glide...not slide. Sliding if more a sideways action and is uncontrolled. Gliding is when your blades carve into the ice.

    So basicly Gliding is when your blades go straight on the ice and you have control,right?

    Exactly. Sliding can be dangerous because you have no control. I have lost edges on occasion and it isn't fun to be skating on no edge. I guess you cld say when you have your blades sharpened they grip the ice more.

    I just got my Skates sharpened today...with that said.....here is todays Report...

    I got to the Rink a little after 11:00. I checked in at the Desk,and waited a bit for a Hockey Game to get of the Ice,then went in and put on my Skates. After getting on the Ice I worked on what the Freestyler who worked with me the last time taught me. As well as practiced Spins,Gliding,and my Rinkside Glide-Ins. BTW. I forgot to mention this the last time. But on the day that my Freestyler Friend was giving me Lessons,she pointed out specail pants she was wearing for practice that I've never seen or heard of before. Does anyone know what these are called? These vers Sweatpants? Anyone here who has also worn them will know what I'm talking about.Also,if I ever need to buy new Laces for my Skates,are Laces for Skates,Laces for Skates? If my Rink's Proshop only cairies black Laces for HOCKEY Skates,and just white for Figure...can I just get the right leingh in the black Hockey Skates and use them in my Skates? Also I noticed that the prices for sharpening differ by the type of Skates. Can anyone explain why? Thanks.

    FSWer you have also been an inspiration to some of us. I have just started attending a gym for the first time ever, and when I'm working out, I think of the progress you've made and try to improve my performance each time. So thanks for that!

    Ok my Fellow Skaters!!!....Last one of the year!!!...Here it gos....

    My Staff got me to the Rink a little after 11:00. After checking in at the Desk,I went to sit down for a bit,until a Hockey Game ended and the Zanboni came out. I then went into the Rink and put on my Skates. I started out for a bit as the only one on the Ice!! Be we soon filled up. We were sharing the Ice with some Ice-Dancers in training (I believe looking for Partners). I also once again had the privage of taking on 2 or 3 Skaters as a Partner!!! Except for falling a few times (while doing it with a kid)...I actually find myself a NATUAL at being able to skate holding someone with one hand and my arm out!!! BTW. does anybody know what the Levels are in the UK.? A mother at the Rink with a Skater today told me when I asked what Level the Daughter was said that she was a Freestyle-4. But wasn't sure what she'd be in the US. Though she believes Prelimanary (sorry if I spelled that wrong). Though,if I'm rigt,we have Freestyle 4 here too,right?

    There are two level 4s in the UK. There is Skate UK, which runs from Level 1 to Level 10, and teaches basic skills. Then there are the standard tests, which also run from Level 1 to Level 10. Level 4 in the standard tests requires an Axel, so I am not sure where it would sit in the US test structure - Juvenile?

    It sounds like they just start numbering over again when you get to a higher level, FSWer. We do that here in the United States, too. First we have the Basic levels 1 through 8, then we start numbering over again with the Free Skate levels 1 through 6 (which are more advanced than the Basic levels), then we start over again with the standard levels, except now we use words to name them instead of numbers. These are the Pre-Preliminary up to Senior levels that you've already heard about, which are our most advanced levels. So we have a Basic Level 4 and a Free Skate Level 4, but they're not the same thing. In our Basic 4, for instance, skaters are learning things like forward crossovers and forward outside three turns. In Free Skate 4 they're working on sit spins and loop jumps. Our 4th standard level is Juvenile, where skaters have to be able to do an axel to pass the test, but usually already have double jumps in their programs.

    You can only go as far as the push takes you... I asked my daughter - part of her test was going halfway down the ice on one leg, and then the rest of the way on the other leg. She said you build up speed in the hook (a way of entering the glide). You need power.

    Ok my fellow Skaters!!! Here is todays Report!!! My Staff dropped me off at the Rink a little before noon. After signing in at the Desk,I ent in to put on my Skates. I had to have someone tie my laces tight,as I don't have much of a knack for it. However,I DO find myself with a knack fo Skating around other Skaters. As we were sharing the Rink with a Birthday Party. I also have just found out today that I have somewhat of a knack for Skating with 2 Partners (a Partner on each side of you,holding each your hands,does anyone know if there is an actual name for that kind of Skating)? We did 2 whole laps around the Rink!!! I also practiced my Spins (I found myself actually spinning faster today!!! I also praticed my Backward Skating. As well as tried some more Spirals off the wall.

    Can anybody please give me some tips on how to do a 2-Foot Spin correctly? I believe I have the idea when I do it. But I'm not sure. Were should my arms be,and how do I start a Spin?
