Some Back Sit Spin Progress
Last week I mentioned that the MCL on my spinning leg was sore. I believe it’s from doing broken leg sit spins – the position I take causes a lot of pressure on the inside of my skating knee, and it probably aggravated my MCL. While it’s healing, I’ve started working diligently on my back sit spin.
At Nationals, I did not receive credit for a backwards entry feature in my back sit/forward sit combination. Coach B thinks that my back sit wasn’t low enough, so it didn’t count. Well, I am determined to fix that, so I am focusing on lowering my spin so my thighs are parallel to the ice.
Here is where I am at right now.
And I hope to add a twist to my back sit spin this season so I can gain an additional level for my spin. This is the beginnings of a back twist. It’s not 100% there yet because I need to turn my head and torso more, but it’s a good start.
