A quick thanks for all the advice and encouragement. I took to the ice today for a few hours at an open skate session. Last time I skated, the elder Bush was still in office.
Strides were weak, crossovers (forward) were unstable, hockey stops were pathetic ... But I stayed off my butt and the wall, and had a great time.
That said ... I wore rental skates. I am totally sold on spending some extra money to get the right fit. Man, are my arches sore!
So thanks again for the advice, I look forward to putting it into action ASAP and spending more time on the ice.
