My back edges run like they're on rails. Dead solid.
My body. head, and arm position is perfect.
My two foot back threes are, to put it mildly, perfect two foot back threes.
Two coaches have separately told me to just pick up my free foot and do the turn. In their minds, I'm ready.
In my mind---not ready.
So I start with a solid back edge on my own, my coach gives me a hand to do the one foot turn, and I bob.
"You look like a bobbing bird," she says.
That's probably a sign I'm not bending my knees properly so I bend at my hips to keep my center of gravity over my boots.
