I am still getting over a cold so I have been off the ice since my return from NWP Regionals... but I figured ( :-) ) I would be okay with some patching. I had fixed my scribe also!
Today's lesson started pretty much right when I got on the ice w/no warmup.
- edges -- pretty good. BI first lobe still a bit weak, but overall I'd say passable.
- FO8 -- pretty good although for some reason my circles were a little small.
- FI8 -- decent. We spent a little time trying to make my push for the LFI match the RFI one -- as it is the RFI ones are nicely placed but the LFI ones are too far out, i.e. I'm widestepping a bit. Not too hard to correct if I am actually paying attention...
- waltz-8 -- what can one say? About the same. After we went through it we spent some time breaking down the step forward. I watched Lynne do it once and noticed that she really keeps her hands/arms close immediately before & after the step forward. So I ran just the step forward and was actually able to improve it a lot... so then we ran it with the turn before it and whammo... Clearly part of the problem is that I don't check the 3 very well and so I'm still fixing my position when I push to the BO edge, which doesn't set me up well for success. So there's more to fix here, really.
