Thanksgiving Aftermath !

Kids are gone. Turkey leftovers have been consumed. Nothing left but the calories that stayed behind! My lesson today was at the start of the session for both myself and coach Naomi. So rather than telling me to warm up .. she led me around and I tried to shadow her in the warm up exercises. It was more fun than the rest of the lesson! Afterwards I ran dances and my free dance a few times but the video get too chopped with other skaters. So I just put a few tidbits of my accomplishments on the reel following the lesson. 1. Trying to increase my twizzle count from 2 to 3 2. Trying to get my spread eagle back 3. Spin practice

Gobble Gobble Turkey On Ice

Only skate of the week - Monday before Thanksgiving.  Too busy to find any more ice time until next Monday.  I can only imagine how that will go!

Had a technical lesson with Naomi today on some of my trouble spots on the Silver Dances.  Vitali cannot see my feet when we are partnered and my Mohawk, Three Turns and Swing Threes needed some attention.

Afterwards I had some time to practice ~  never enough time.

Happy Holidays

Happy to Report a Good Lesson Today

 My lessons so far this year are just 30 minute lessons.  It’s hard to make great strides but today left me feeling like I am making some progress toward these dances.

Silver Dance Struggles

 Another great lesson with Vitali.  I really love my lessons with him.  There is literally no way I can do these dances solo.  Thanks to the adult skating rules - we don’t have to test these dances solo any more.

My American Waltz.. is really off.  My swing 3’s are hopping and skidding and not at tempo.


 I didn’t skate at all since last Thursday so I guess I get what I deserve in the lack of progress department.  I am just so frustrated over...
