Skating Fridays

Double Toe Loop Attempt

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a safe yet fun New Year’s Eve. We typically spend it with one of our friends and their kids, but we did it via FaceTime this year. Although we met virtually, it was still nice to be able to see our friends and catch up on the past few months.

This week, I attempted a double toe loop.  I had been off the ice for a full week and decided that it was time to try one of these jumps. Surprisingly, it didn’t go too horribly. I typically land on two feet or am a jumbled mess in the air. However, this time I was able to get into a (somewhat) tighter rotating position and land on one foot.

Yes, this is still very cheated, but it’s progress, so I will take it!

    Impressive, Eva. I think the tight air position is working well for you! Happy new skating year!
