Today's lesson was all about skating skills...
- edge drills -- JJ had me work on a very basic outside edge drill -- glide forward on a flat, then around a circle. Each foot, forward and back. While I certainly can do it, my circles are pretty large. And backward my position is a bit stinky. I need to def. work these as it directly attacks one of my weak points (deep edges).
- cross strokes -- evidently JJ has been talking with Sonya! These were basically the same as I worked on with Sonya a couple of weeks ago. Ugh. Although they have improved a little bit since then. JJ emphasized that when the feet cross you need to feel you are shifting your weight *forward* which was a bit different for me. Good stuff.
