Friday our rink was crowded. A school was out and the normally quiet morning public session was a bit more crowded than usual. I had a pretty shaky week, but was happy about successfully landing a Flip Jump on Thursday.
This video clip below demonstrates a typical day for me. I only recorded one attempt at each of these elements, but there were many other repetitions.
- Sit Spin It won't pass as a Sit Spin unless I get much lower
- Loop Jump Taking off and landing on my right leg scares me (bad knee)
- Back Spin I was actually happy with this 1st attempt, need to stay on rocker
- Camel Spin Happy I didn't fall. Was reaching back to feel how high my leg was
I am now counting the number of ice days I have left before I go on vacation. There are 7 days left unless I skate a crowded public weekend or evening session. Then I test on March 27 with jet lag the day after I return from vacation. I can just see the judges notes now, "Failed, but nice tan".
