It's my first skating birthday - video
« on: April 15, 2013, 10:33:37 PM »
Here's a little skate I did today on my 1st skate birthday. I know it's very shaky skating still but I just wanted to share my progress after a year. I would never have thought a year ago when I was struggling with the lemons and snowplough stop how far I would have come. Any comments and advice are welcome and yes my coach moans at me every lesson to stop looking at my feet!  :-[

Woo hoo!  Congratulations!  You have some fancy stuff in there (especially those backwards crossing steps - don't know what they're called, but I'd be scared to death to try them!).

If I had to give some constructive criticism, it would be (as you already know) don't look down, keep your body posture upright, and work on keeping your arms/hands outstretched and strong/tight. 

But wow, good job....and Happy Skating Birthday!!  :)

wow cool. Looks like someone familiar in the background - was that at Alti rink by any chance?
Do love to see people  showing their skills on ice - ncie and slow so you can see what they are doing.
Well done and happy skate birthday xx

Happy skating birthday.   :)

It looks like RILC Chelmsford to me (recognise the leisure pass adverts and the 01245 phone no.s) - Kayleigh's doing her SkateUK there, and I'll be chuffed when she gets that good next year. Well done.

I regonise it as Chelmsford as well
 
 

I prefer frozen ice. I will try anything once. If it dosen't kill me, then I may do it again.
