Coach pointed out that a) my shoulders aren’t level when I take off, and b) my ankles aren’t anywhere near each other when I jump.
- Level – i.e. as I rotate on the ice to forward, check that my shoulders and hands are level as I pull them in
- Ankles – i.e. keep the ankles together
It worked for a bit and I landed to forward. But then after stopping to chat for a bit, it stopped working, but maybe I was tired by then?
During my lesson, I rushed things and couldn’t get into a camel. But when I slowed things down again, it worked better.
Therefore, just keep working on my checklist:
- Wait – i.e. allow the RFO edge to develop
- Left – keep the R leg left into the circle
