Skating Fridays

Some Back Sit Spin Progress

Last week I mentioned that the MCL on my spinning leg was sore. I believe it's from doing broken leg sit spins - the position I take causes a lot of pressure on the inside of my skating knee, and it probably aggravated my MCL. While it's healing, I've started working diligently on my back sit spin.

At Nationals, I did not receive credit for a backwards entry feature in my back sit/forward sit combination. Coach B thinks that my back sit wasn't low enough, so it didn't count. Well, I am determined to fix that, so I am focusing on lowering my spin so my thighs are parallel to the ice.

Here is where I am at right now.



And I hope to add a twist to my back sit spin this season so I can gain an additional level for my spin.  This is the beginnings of a back twist.  It's not 100% there yet because I need to turn my head and torso more, but it's a good start.



Happy Friday,
