Skating, I never could skate. Weak ankles, or weak nerves, and a rational fear of falling, a strong dislike of cold and well winter sports where never my thing. Look at the simple physics of a single blade ice skate don't make any sense. They make about as much sense as 6 inch spike heals, by the way I have never worn cha-cha heals. I did have a couple of pairs of platform shoes back in the 1970's, but it was the 70's.
