excited for tomorro but legs are killing esp left knee.
if i ever do another test gonna split them up as the tension and effort  got to me today, sad old sleep deprived mummy!
however watching level 3  made me realise will be a long time - those spirals look knacky esp on the other leg!!! hmmmmm oh and lets not forget the lovely camel thats in level 3 hmmmmm

just hope i can hold it together for the british as my nerves did get the better of me today for some reason.......
suspect when i see u icequeen i will be asleep as driving at 0530 tomorro-yummy! X

Defo feet if you can open your hips please explain ??
Andi

I think it just means opening your feet out and turning your body more so that you can go from the back x over into the open mohawk on your right foot.  I've been doing more exercises with weights standing on the Bosu ball and twisting right round to try and improve my flexibility and it did feel quite good  ;)

Well done Stethoscope and good luck for next week to you and everyone taking part  :)

Half term this week, so little quiet skating time and STILL yet to run through program from beginning to end.
Really difficult on small rink :(

Today I improved my forward spiral on left foot, although leg still isn't high enough I don't think but it's hard when I can't see my reflection...
Also I improved my two-foot spin - going from skating forwards to turning backwards from right to left (clockwise).
I am horribly one sided though, and I have a major block with stopping! I just can't get the t-stop or snowplough, my skates just wobble and slide and I don't actually stop.
Beginner skater, not taking lessons due to not living near enough to a rink, but trying to improve any way I can!
Skating in Risport Etoiles with "New English" blades.
I skate at; Plymouth, Amiens (France), Telford and Cannock

Hi

 My latest achievement to date:

 I was able to do my cross foot spin with 4 or 5 revolutions.

 First time ever that I can do my sit spin with the full 6 revolutions, though it is not consistent yet (the number of revolutions).

 Also managed to do teapots without sitting on the ice.  ;D

Hi

 Found that if I am not too consciously mind thinking doing the spins, I can do them pretty well; whereas if I am too conscious about them, I cannot do them properly.

 Suppose that it is something to do with the mind.

Not a lot unfortunately! No SkateUk this week cos of half term, the outdoor rink in Leeds is packed, and I've missed a private lesson and SkateUk cos of the recent snow. I'm getting withdrawal symptons, just as I was nicely building up my ice time too!  :-[

Well done - what a thrill and don't diss yourself about it being a 'baby jump' - tis still a leap of faith, into the air, with no feet on the ground  :)
