After two weeks off ice I finally got on ice today.
This is always an iffy moment when you haven't skated for a while and you step on the ice. You think, "Will I have retained my skills, or will I skate like an ice tourist?"
So, YES! I retained my skills. I think the off ice rest actually improved my bad side mohawk a bit.
It's not that my bad side mohawk is perfect, however, I can now sense where I'm going wrong. Maybe it's arm position, or upper body, or some thing else.
After doing a few bad side mohawks, I didn't check with my leading arm correctly, and ended up skating backwards in a small circle. It was an okay transfer from forward to back, but I almost ended up doing a back spin. So this is my coach and I.
Triumph! I've done worse! I'm making progress!
