A week ago I wrote about slowing down my spins so I could get a better sense of what was impeding my spins. In my first experiments I discovered two things:
- I need to enter the spin with a definite inside edge
- I needed to make an in boot adjustment.
I mean, I know people who do much, much better than that, so what am I doing wrong?
I have a patented method of dealing with things like this. When I try, and try and nothing gets better...
So, what's the opposite of the inside edge? The outside edge!
I started working on entering the 3 turn into the spin with a deeper outside edge. I've got lazy foot, so my outside edges are more like outside flats. Once I started focusing consciously on deepening the outside edge my transition to the inside edge got better. Three tries in and I hit my first four rotation spin!
Form may not be all that great, and four rotations make me dizzy, but I finally broke the four rotation wall!
|Yeah, whatever. Still have four rotations.|
