    I shot the duck!

    My dog is still looking for it....
    After going through my current menu of 3-turns, waltz jumps, crossover sequences, and various edges, I was looking for something different to do to avoid burnout.
    Some of the kids - slightly more advanced than me - were playing around with trying to shoot the duck after their free skate class, so I decided to give that a try.
    After a few abortive attempts - didn't go down far enough - I got it!
    Now I have to figure out how to get back up without wiping out......

    What'd that poor duck ever to do you?

    Congrats! That's one of those things I just can't get--my knees and ankles don't bend that far!

    I can shoot the duck just fine. It's just that I can't get back up from shooting. Which is stupid because I can sit spin fine.

    Congratulations! You are now on your way to learning a sitspin.

    My 14-year-old figure skating niece tried to get me to shoot the duck. Then she was wondering what all those wierd cracking noises were coming from assorted areas of my body.

    60 year old frames are not built for shooting the duck, wounding yes.
