I skated on the 2nd of 2 sessions our club has right now. The high level skaters had just gotten off and the ice was a bit chewed up. That makes it harder for me to work on moves in the field. My back eights and double three turns are slow enough on fresh ice!
Im still struggling to maintain good edges on the double three turns. All of them. Some feet/edges are better than others but none of them show real control. If I get the edge right my body is fighting and has no composure or look relaxed. If I carry myself calmly - I usually lose the edge and get “subcurves”. All that is from years
of improper edging.
In the dance department - all 3 of the bronze ice dances are coming along. I am learning to get more comfortable doing backward chassee’s, backward progressives, backward swing rolls and just about every step on the Ten Fox is challenging either mentally or physically! The Hickory Hoedown, while not nearly perfect is probably testable.
Friday I have another session - we’ll see.
