Why My One Foot Spins Go Wrong...(Edited)

I lean out of the circle....then just my head leans out of the circle...

Or my shoulders twist....or I look down...look up...too far to the side...

Or my feet are too far apart....or the toes aren't in the right position....

Or I enter the spin too fast...too slow...too early....too late...the wrong arm forward...

Not to mention that when I hold my arms out in a hoop they aren't hoopy enough but to the left.... or the right....

Right now, to spin I get my hands/arms/shoulders positioned by grabbing my jacket zipper with both hands as I spin, squeeze my gut in, don't look down (look straight ahead), point my toes in, don't bend forward,  and then....

And you know what happens? I find another way to do it wrong!

100 Day Lunge Challenge is Dead--new 100 Day Challenge Begins

Today I did lunges, both sides, feet nicely placed during the lunge and raised the foot from the ice without snagging. The 100 Days of Lunges is now over.


They're as good as I can get them for now.  I have knee injuries that keep me from going deep in the knee and coming back up, so .....meh....what can you do.

The new 100 Day Challenge is.....

100 Days of Spread Eagles!


I know what you're thinking, "That's the same hip opener stuff you're already doing!"

Well, yeah.
