With Nationals coming up in a month's time, and a very bleak skating schedule ahead (trying to buy ice time is like pulling teeth!), I have been making Plan B for my program...
Take out the double loop.
Seriously, no point in trying that if its not going to be fully rotated. I will do an Axel instead.
Change start position.
This is because I find my initial start boring, and also because I want to place the first spin further down one end of the rink so that I will have more space for my combination jump on the other end of the rink.
Downgrade spiral sequence.
Better to have a nice sequence than try an ugly change of position that may not work, right? Anyway, I didn't really change it all that much.
This one my coach vehemently objects to, and insists I should do the doubles at the beginning of the program instead of at the end. Of course I can take out the step sequence to make way for them, but why should I do that for unreliable double jumps? Ok, I shouldn't give up on the doubles so easily, so they will stay - for now...
I suppose I will have to actually try this out with music - but I haven't had a chance to play my music these last two lessons, because I forgot my music last Friday and the player wasn't correctly plugged in this morning!!
