Happy Mother's Day week!! How goes the skating?
Rain, rain go away: Scratchy, stiff start this morning. I just was a little stiff legged at first.
Everything's coming up Roses: MAJOR breakthrough today, with both salchow and one foot spin. I finally got a better hang on lengthening the opening edge with both. Got the check on the three turn into the salchow better and was able to jump better, and I'm FINALLY starting to get the hang of "edging out" intially before I spin. In both cases, I was popping both moves somewhat, nudging my right shoulder around too fast. Both moves feel quite different, but coach says its a big improvement. Amazing how proper right arm placement can make a difference in that spin.
Now, if my sinuses will JUST hold out through competition on the 14th and 15th. Rainly weather and changes in the weather and pressure from traveling once again caused my sinuses to "pop" a bit, although I'm breathing better overall so I can't complain.
So, how goes it, troopers?????? :D
