10 Things Adult Figure Skaters Never Say

25 Jan

I see the kids coming up with these lists all the time! This one is for the adults. My top ten things adult figure skaters never say!

10. Nothing hurts, I feel awesome. Very limber. Just like Sasha Cohen.

9. I love skating in a crowded freestyle session with kids whizzing by me.

8. Forget the axel. I want to practice the waltz jump and my basic stroking until I die.

7. I don’t spend enough money on figure skating. Ice time and coaches are so cheap!

6. My spins are always centered. Always.

5.  My family and friends think I’m completely normal for getting up at 5am to skate.

4. My skates are so comfy, just like slippers. I don’t need to tighten or loosen them…

3. I don’t need to bend my knees more. My coach says I bend them enough.

2. Knee pads, elbow pads, hip pads? What are those? I don’t need any of ’em!

and finally . . .

1. Falling? Who’s afraid to fall? Not me. I never get injured  ; )

    Love these! Especially #8–for me it’s not even the waltz jump, but basic stroking 4-ever!

      LOL yes… I know that practicing basic stroking is good and even the kids have to do it but still!
