My moves are mostly passable, but I need more work on smooth 3 turns, more knee bend and arm extension for the transitions and keeping my head up.
Also on my back outside edges I am starting to do sort of a swing roll instead of just a back edge. Need to correct that.
At the end of the lesson we talked a bit about my problem with the backspin. I thought I had made some progress. Drawing my arms to my chest in more of a jump/gather position. When I demonstrated it, my coach told me I had improved, but what I was doing was a forward inside edge spin. Which she said was VERY HARD and reserved for high level skaters!!! I had to laugh. It wasn't a good spin, but that's the edge I was on. When I get on my outside edge I seem to fall to the back of my blade (scary). Tomorrow I will capture some practice on that.
Here is my practice today and my lesson covering Power 3 Turns for the MIF:
