Bigger Salchow Entry

I have been working on a new salchow entry and trying to get comfortable with it. For whatever reason, I tend to scratch my toe before taking off so that has been causing me to lose speed and height in the jump.

I’m happy to share that I have (mostly) eliminated that toe scratch and that this jump is finally making some progress. I checked the timing on this video and looks like my air time is around 0.40 seconds, which should give me plenty of time to add another rotation. Hopefully soon!

      Thanks, Jo! Hopefully we can turn this into a double someday!
