I got to the rink and decided to do a little off ice warm up. I often wonder if I am the only one (adult) who struggles trying to do off ice jumps. I really fear torquing my knee and twisting my ankle. Which I did today.. on a Loop Jump.
On ice I worked on my Gold Moves. I was able to get in 2 sets of each of the Power Crossovers in both directions and both frontwards and backwards. Without someone filming you - the video is not good from the rail, so I didn't capture that.
I worked on my Backward Outside Eight many times both before and during my lesson. My coach could see during my lesson that I need to raise my hip on my free leg and that should help my trouble spots on this move.
During practice I got frustrated .. again.. and moved onto free style before my lesson and I was really happy with my Waltz Loop Loop progress.
Thursday.. the plan is to put me in the harness for my first Axel - in harness - lesson. We probably won't be attempting the whole jump, just trying to initiate more rotation.. we'll see, I hope to capture it.
