Any recreational ice skaters out there found a workout from the available list that best matches up with ice skating?

I went on my first ice skate of the season today and chose "other" thinking it would learn my movements and I could rename it, but apparently they removed that feature so it's just logged as "other" now. Not sure if that's the best way to go, or if I should be picking something else from the list.

What do you do?

Thanks!

Hockey or Cross Country Skiing, perhaps? Maybe Skating (skateboarding)?
Thanks for the suggestions -- I use hockey for street hockey, figured skateboarding is too different but hadn't thought of cross country skiing, the body movements strike me is similar to recreational ice skating (though you generally covering a long distance vs looping around and around a rink) will give this a try thanks!

Yeah, there isn't a one-to-one match for recreational or fitness skating. Strange, considering all the other options. Best of luck!
