Change of Edge

Ever since my rink re-opened, I have been having a difficult time with my spins. They feel more difficult to execute, and my standby spins have felt more labored. I’m sure it is all in my head, but I haven’t been happy with my spins in the past few weeks.

This week, I had a bit of a breakthrough with my change of edge camel spin. The spin has been inconsistent at best, and I typically have a hard time holding it for more than 1.5 revolutions. On Monday, I was able to execute this spin feature every time I attempted it.

I hope that my mental hurdles are now over and that I can add this to my spin repertoire and potentially include it in my program this season.
