Jumps and Spins ...

I am running out of post titles for my practice sessions.  Obviously every time I go out on the ice I am practicing jumps and spins .. however small and slow they may be.

I wore a skirt today because I wanted to see my leg lines and positions.  Skating in pants hide this and it's all important to both the technical and artistic side of skating.

Today I worked on the things I learned in my last lesson.  Always easier said than done.
Changing my jump landings is like telling someone to intentionally walk pigeon-toed.. it just feels awkward. Stepping into my circle also feels different and takes a strong conscious effort, but already is showing better results.  See what you think.

  1. Don't be so hard on yourself. You've made tremendous progress on everything, especially on the sit spin! See if you can get down in the sit position quicker and not start from a scratch spin position. The scratch has centered so much better too! Great job!

  2. Thank you . Truthfully I think that only a skater could recognize the small progress that I making.
