Great ice today. Unfortunately I could not execute either a Back Spin or a Waltz Jump - Toe Loop combination. As a matter of fact, the more times I attempted the combination the more FEAR built up in my mind.
I makes no sense why I can do a Flip Jump without fear, but not a Toe Loop. I won't spend much time analyzing it. I just hope it will work itself out. I came home and watched Michael Weiss do 30 of them on Monkey See. He gets great height off a single Toe Loop and shows it in real time and then slow motion. I need to just go for it .... reach way back, stick that toe pick in and vault myself up and around.
Tomorrow I am taking the day off the ice. I have too much to do around the house and Friday I am going to California and plan to skate at Belmont on Friday after I have my boots looked at by Harlick and then at Dublin on Monday.
