My spin lesson with Lynne on the 7:30 a.m. FS at Chandler. As usual for this session it was just me, Cameron and Jaclyn (and coach Tammi). We were delayed by 15 minutes as the ice was so bad (fog, bumps) that the skating director (Lord bless her!) told them to Zam it again before she'd let us on. That helped a lot but it was still quite foggy and raining in the rink.
I warmed up with moves, then we started our lesson:
- standing start -- mmph. I don't think I got more than 1.5 revs the whole time. I just could not get over my L side.
- windup -- not any better. Yuck.
A very very frustrating lesson (my glasses were fogged up halfway through so I couldn't see). I feel like I'm just not getting anywhere and I don't know what to do. More of the same just does not seem to be cutting it. I've worked with, what, 5 different coaches on these over the years? I have been skating for 11 years and I can't spin worth a damn and practically everyone, even adults I know who have been skating for just a few months, can spin much, much better than me. It's so frustrating.
