Timing is Everything

That is the hardest thing about skating pairs so far.  Trying to get the timing down - especially for spins.  I always know if I got "about" 4-5-6 revolutions in a spin, but never precisely.  In pairs you have to be more aware of each revolution and how fast or slow you are going in comparison to your partner.  Also .. exiting a spin facing a certain direction has never been my forté.  We'll get it eventually.

Learned a pair spin today.  Very simple, side by side, yet a pair spin.  Also learned how to enter a pair spin of any kind from opposite sides of a circle and the basic throw loop entry.  Excited about learning more things in the days to come.

Next week we hope to have a lesson on Thursday !!
