Then I had an impromptu private lesson. My coach and I were discussing my Lovely program and she explained that she could teach it to me in a couple mini lessons and she was like "we could do one right now, I don't have anyone" (It was during the practice session) and ten dollars later we were
rolling. My music isn't cut yet so we spent the lesson working on backwards skating (which I had planned on practicing anyway) and it's quite improved! Slow with balance checks, but I'll take it for now. :)
I did have a bit of time to practice on my own at the end and while I mostly worked on what was covered in my group lesson, I watched a video about spins earlier in the week where you march to gain momentum before you spin and it worked. Still needs work, but at least I got the feeling this time. My ankles were killing me when I left so I guess I worked hard.
In other news, sounds like I'll be doing another competition at the end of March in Cromwell. If all goes according to plan I'll be doing compulsory and freeskate this time. Lovely will be making it's debut before that though at the Watertown Skating Club's end of the year show.
I ordered a dress on Amazon...stay tuned (It's coming from China)!
