hi everyone we are making a very exciting video today in this video you can see we are in a different place than we usually are this is definitely not the studio we are actually at an ice rink right now and i don't have my mask on because we rented the whole place to be safe but that's ok you may have seen this in other videos but I've been teasing that I used to be a
skaterI was a
skaterfor quite a while and I've mentioned it in a few videos about my past in figure
skatingand you guys have been really interested in seeing a concept video basically where the skater tries to skate again after such and such
yearsso i haven't figure skated in eight
yearsi quit ago eight years, so it's been a long
skatingas well, not really figure skating. even with the most upset stomach because I'm so nervous I really don't want to hurt myself I actually went to the chiropractor twice this week to get ready for this because my bone density is that of a 70 year old I'm going to put on my skates and we'll try it today , I hope it turns out well and I can show you some of the things I used to do. I used to be a
competitivefigure skater who skated six days a week and it was like two hours of skating one. and a half hours in the office every day so it was a lot, it was a lot and I used to compete a lot and honestly I did decent in the competition so we'll see if I still have some of that talent. so these are not the skates i used to skate on.

figure skating for the first time in ten years ex competitive skater...
I actually bought a pair once my feet stopped growing, but they looked like this. The only difference is that when I used to skate, I had blades popping up, which basically meant there were holes. the blades to make them a little bit lighter still to this day i don't know if it makes them that big of a difference but it looked cool so i liked it when i was young we were looking at some memory boxes and i didn't keep all my skating dresses, some of which I got rid of later but my grandma actually used to make some of my skating dresses so we kept them because they're obviously keepsakes so here's one that I used quite a bit there's a little snowflake here and like you can see it's very small if you want to see it as a figure skating q a at some point maybe I'll try to put one of these up it'll probably be very embarrassing but here's this other green one and I've got some little videos that I'll show but it's been hard to find stuff i think i have more photos than videos of me figure skating ok i'm about to try and record the only record and routine i could find i was looking everywhere for any kind of recording, if you can hear the computer having trouble reading this 2011 record I've already tried like three different ways to read it, I'm g.
I was worried it wouldn't work, but this was an ice show where the theme was Alice in Wonderland and I was actually Alice, so the lead is fine, but I really think I do some things in it, So we'll see, oh my gosh. that startup sound i don't know how this will go you can hear the disc drive is working over
timethis is an old macbook it's my mom's but it's the only one that will play this disc yes i scoff at skidding a bit so this is just me i run a routine for kids who are younger than me it's not super exciting unless one of them is your kid but we'll speed this part up this is me i'm on a few others but we'll do this this is my solo from alice in wonderland its very different than my competitive routines minus jumps minus spins but still pretty cool and its the only one i could find sadly i couldnt use the music because it was copyrighted but just take a look oh what did you do Think what did you think of my routine?
I'm going to put this on. We're going to do this. My dad is her. He wanted to come and see. He used to watch my figure skating almost every day and he was excited about all my competitions. Dad, you know what we should say to the competition I was in when I stepped on the ice and forgot all my routine. so i made one up on the spot and then got second place in earnest. I forgot all my routine the moment I stepped on the ice. I made one up like I hadn't skated. I was super upset when I came off the ice because I couldn't do my new routine and then I got the second one we thought we should go yeah we thought we should go she clearly didn't place her.
I didn't even know what I was doing out there your coach looked at me in the stands and shook his head like I was skating around the ice randomly trying to score points make no mistake guys I'm not stretching because I'm going to do something really good i'm stretching because i'm 80 in 21 years my old body is fine guys let's see after eight years how i can skate i'm going to start by just going around and we'll see how it goes now i feel good my biggest fear is getting itchy toe and landing right on my face i did that way too much when i was young so the goal is not to hit your face on the boards and not to hit your face on the ice i gotta keep my arms up cause i fall oh , omg, I already ran out of breath.
I remember when I was young and I skated. I remember wondering why people get out of breath. Now I understand. I laughed once and gasped. Okay, skate backwards. skating backwards cause i can't stub my toe come with me little ming you now don't you hate your theme i should ask on instagram what people want to see okay guys i'm going to ask you on instagram what would you like to see me try to see if i can still do it we'll see what you want to see oh my god you guys crazy the
firstone was a cartwheel i can't do a cartwheel you guys want to see me cartwheel okay oh sorry guys camera cut out I don't know why skate to back we already did that jump and axel so when i stopped skating i was starting to do doubles so one axel still It was still pretty hard for me so i'll definitely try one axel oh no but i don't think i'll try doubles , but we'll see, but I can definitely try singles, sure people don't want me to. i hurt myself that's good thanks guys it looks like you just want to see a little bit of everything so i'll try what i used to try to do a simple twist to start my favorite twist of all time.
I don't remember what it was called but you would do this and jump back and then down with your left foot so hopefully we can get to that but I'll start with an easy one I feel like I'm going to have like snot flying around the ring we're going to see i'm going to be dizzy oh no oh my god whoa oh my god that didn't used to happen to me getting old is pretty te rm boys let me try again oh my god little daddy is coming boys he couldn't stay away he looked for a minute and then he has to come to a race, oh my gosh, okay oh my gosh, that was scary.
I think we should go again. maybe we'll start with some easier things, in fact, we'll go back to twists. I'll do a rabbit jump. This is how kids did bunny hops when I was teaching skating, but this is how the pros do bunny hops. I'm not a professional anymore, but that's what they used to do. You wanna see me shoot the duck dad ok oh no oh yeah don't shoot the duck guys it's just a name after this I was really curious. the name came up so I did a little google search and sure enough it didn't come from anywhere. there was no risk of falling on my face and the judges thought it was more impressive so i'll give it a try i don't remember which way i go how is my leg is straight it's straight the judges love to get a little razzle dazzle we've seen lunges we've seen spirals do you want to see the start of one of my routines oh yeah this is the pink panther routine it won me gold three times because the judges have never seen anything like it before so what was it like I was dressed in pink and fishnets and started on the boards where people played the music.
I'd skate right at them and they'd think I always had a problem with my music, but then I'd turn them around and go down like that. I think I have a problem with my music. I'm going to skate to tell them if you've seen the pink panther then you know the music but basically it would start with a pop up you look both ways and then you skate go go go and I don't remember the rest but I know there was something like this. people love that they didn't expect a 10 year old kid to have a drink and then we're going to get into s some jumps and some tougher pirouettes I look bad now because I'm tired let's try this is going to be a spiral spike we'll see ok wow oh gosh oh gosh this doesn't look good for me doing my flips and spins this is going to bother me now I'm retrieving memories when I was a figure skater ok I'm doing a jump because I don't care about my body i'm doing a spin jump this is my favorite jump this is the last jump i learned before i quit and i love it it's a fly i don't even remember what it's called like a flying spiral or something i'm not sure it was better than i expected that wasn't bad i'm going to try my jumps now i'm going to try i'm going to increase from easier to harder i don't think i'm going to do doubles when i stop skating bigger i could do like one or two doubles maybe like that i was new at the time It is so I know eight years later I don't think I can do it but I can do the little things so we'll try we'll start with the easiest thing what did you think? as was? dow cow hold that landing triple axel edit the ground those are all now i have this weird to spin again cause i dont feel sick again sick again omg me i shouldn't have done that.
Is there someone here to help me? I'm so nauseous, guys. I just filmed a tick tock where I had to turn really fast and I did it so many times. I love spinning, but seriously, my brain isn't. used to it my brain is spinning in my head right now I'm trying to think of more things to try if there's anything else you guys would like to see me try be sure to comment below and we can do a part two to this video or if Is there anything else you would like to know about competitive skating ask me I'm no expert but I did it for a while and yes it was a lot of fun I haven't been able to try the old skating moves I loved skating and honestly it was very fun to come here and try everything I hope lives up to your expectations.
