4 Years has passed and now 2018 I am ready to "retake" this test in March. Though I am a little hesitant with my back spin because its not consistent it's "a hit or miss" for me but I am going to give it a shot, I dont have nothing to lose but much to gain from it. Good news is that coach gave me the okay. So now it's time to practice 2x to 3x a week and get my program test ready and let the skating Gods be with me on T-day.
Skated February 11, 2018
I had a good practice yesterday morning, worked on my MIF and did some program run throughs. I am not feeling out of breath which is good. To get a good program run though, I like to break my program into 3 parts: the opening, the middle and the end, by doing this helps me work on the parts that I need to focus and practice...then I run it with music.
FINALLY skated my back spin with more than 3 revs in my program, I was so happy that I felt like crying!! now to remember how I did it and keep up the momentum!!
- Tight free leg extension
- Suck up in my belly button
- Rise up my axis
- Push down on my spinning foot
- hold the spin and check
Wish me luck.....keep following my blog for updates
