With connecting moves and arms in between .....
Can I do all this? Pretty half way at this point. I can see that once it is fully planned out, there will be weeks of tweaking and months of building up the stamina to pull it all off.
I got a great tip today on the Sit Spin. I was putting my free leg too far off to the side. My coach told me to put it more in front. Just like that ... I was centered- sitting on top of my boot and completing nearly 10 revolutions. Getting up again... I sort of fell out of it, but it was a great hurdle. Afterwards in practice I didn't do as well as you will see on the video.
Below is a video for anyone who has never skated who wants to know what a skater sees when we spin. This is a relatively slow spin too.
