Three Turns - Doing Them vs Doing Them Right

 If you ask me if I can do a three turn.  My response would be YES.  But doing them correctly, with strong edges and good flow going in and coming out with speed and control and extension !!!  That is the difficult part.  Videos of myself show me how off base I am, but somehow don’t give me the insight I need to correct them.  Words are easy - but execution of any element of skating thrown into the soup pot of 61 year old bones (some with spurs) and joints (minus the necessary cartilage) - slows me down to a crawl sometimes.  Progress does come, but not quickly.
