The ice was freshly scraped and there were only 3 other people skating. That left me no excuses for not trying. As you can see I also wore a skating skirt today to try and force myself to work a little harder. Have I mentioned my rink is freezing? So wearing a skirt forces you to skate hard enough to warm up your muscles ... or else.
I also noticed my new bunion didn't hurt as bad. Maybe it's not going to be permanent. I hope not.
I brought my music and headphones today to try and experiment with some connecting moves for my program. I hope to be able to contribute to the program and not let my coach just tell me every element, step, gesture.
Today I worked at spirals, backspins, sit spins, camel spins, attitude spins, footwork, spread eagle, ina bauers, waltz jump, salchow, loop jumps. I still need to straighten out my skating leg and lock it and my free leg on my spirals. I feel as though it is, but it's not.
Question: Are names of jumps proper nouns? Should I capitalize them? I think so.
I was kind of happy about my sit spin. My video turned off and I didn't catch one in practice... you will have to take my word for it. I seem to be able to get a little lower and hold it longer and almost ..get up and complete an upright scratch spin when I finish. The rules say you have to do at least 3 revolutions in position.
I attempted a few camel spins too (also not captured on video) and not being able to get into that position quickly are going to make the road to re learning a camel spin more difficult.
