At the rink. Again.
Ah, that's not how your first post read on the subject. Thanks for the clarity
ISU, stop promoting 2-foot skating!
When I started to learn how to skate in my late twenties, I remember watching this very old couple skating (who were also beginner level skaters) in the same public session as me and being very jealous at how they were much more progressed than me.
An example of knowing personal limitations related to age:
I have what my dr called "severe" osteoporosis. I decided that I need to stop competing with myself to do everything I could as a kid, so I don't plan on doing much with jumps. It's fine with me, since I will still be able to do shows and compete artistic programs at my old level without them (when I get back the rest of the stuff).
There are plenty of figure skating skills to work on and even compete with without having to jump at all.
On the Ice
I'm curious, Emmi... are you skating now?
There are a lot of things you could do that might be better than what you did as a kid. I find nowadays I'm paying more attention to things like transitions, interesting entries to jumps, skating skills, and spinning in terms of centering and revolutions. You can always continue learning new tricks that don't impact your body so hard.
