The remarks were "Rushed but basically on time"
The video is painful viewing. Until I passed the first CW progressive I felt jerky and really clunked that progressive. Then all of a sudden, I felt smooth and in control. On the back side I think I did everything correctly, but it's hard to see in the video.
During the presentation glide the judge stood up and applauded. I think that was a nice gesture of encouragement (I was the oldest person testing).
Well, what did I learn from the test?
1. I need to have more videos of my skating up to the test to 'see' what I'm doing, rather than 'feel' what I'm doing.
2. I need to get to where extension is first nature. I think if I had my extension under control, I wouldn't have been so rushed at the beginning.
3. MORE KNEEBEND! It was adequate, I was hardly stiff kneed, but I can really get down there if I work on it.
4. I'd like more power, but that may be physically limited.
5. I need to plan my warmup better. I worked on my knee bend, and stroking. I really should have put some emphasis on my alternating crossovers more.
I stayed for several other dance tests. Two people had to have retries. One woman totally missed the hick kick in the Hickory Hoedown (I'm pretty sure that was a fail).
