I did a Axel today, ah yah.

For those who know skating.

Okay so I'm starting to get the skating bug again and if I can I'd love to be able to do all the jumps again. My biggest goal would be able to do a double axel since I've never landed one before. However if I pulled one of those off I think my poor father would fall over and have a heart attack right there.

hmmmm I started to work on that before my knee flammed up. No the double axel is scarier and harder, you know that. :)

i actually always wondered which one was harder. i only made it up to double lutzes and the other doubles.

Wow Tanya that's were I was too working on the double flips and lutzs and the occasional axel. Once I tried a few triple sows too. Oh memories, just thinking about all this is making my butt feel wet cold and painful.

oh cool. can you believe they no longer have figures.?
i hated them but will never forget when i got second at the sungod comp. tanked in the finals, but never thought i was good at figures.
i am the only one in the world that failed their pre-figures, before i even go to the actualy figures part. (inside edge = bleh)
rambling. sorry

figures, how many hours were spent going in circles, literally. I think I had to redo my 4th but I don't remember anymore I think I passed my 6th or 5th. I would actually love to do back inside loops again, maybe even serpentine ones. I'll have to go to my parents to see if I can find my figures skates I don't think I have them anymore. I just have the free skate ones.

loved back inside loops. serpentine, backwards, loops. ? um nooooooo , not for moi.

6th figure wow.
did you compete against keyla ohs? sounds like you were at a junior level?
i was almost pre-novice, i think but i loved my junk food by 11th grade, so my ass was grass and so were my jumps by then. :o(
i love all this skating talk. love it

keyla ohs, she was amazing such good presentation. We used to skate at Kerrisdale together but I never competed against her, she had the double axel down pat, she made it look simple. Unfortuantley she had a dragon mother and quit just as made it to the national team. I was novice but my knee gave out and I never competed at that level. :(

i saw her doing double sows and axels when she was 7. insane. we all thought she was a little snot.
saw her on a documentary and i guess she was misunderstood cuz she seems adorable and sweet and she's with the coolest guy skater ever (besides KB of course)- Elvis Stojko
