A good skating move

We assume that skating is a total movement and not the sum of different partial movements. Words like elegant, effective, addictive can get a place, but also words like difficult, frustrating, exhausting. One thing is certain. Skating is all about pushing off and using that push off by sliding. Effectively convert your energy into forward speed and maintain relaxed speed. Simplified, you could say that just like walking, you step from one foot to the other and that you should bear your weight on two legs for as short a time as possible.

is a unique movement

can you approach it thematically?
