Hi Everyone, It's been a long time since I've been here. My practices have been mixed. Sometimes I get ahead technical wise and otherwise I fall back. I'm having issues with landing my loop, flip and lutz on one foot. I have the rotation but can't seem to keep the free leg in the proper position once in the air which causes me to tap down on landings. I'm suppose to be competing in Womens Adult Bronze FS but had to compete up in the 2012 Pat Abela/McPhersan competition this past Sunday, where I came in 2nd=Silver medal in Womens Adult Silver. I almost totally trashed all my elements in my program while competing and because it's marked with CPC, which is the same as US IJS, here in Canada for Adult competing StarSkaters (level in between recreational and competitive) I only earned .47 TEC scores. My mark was mostly made up of my PCS. In the US if they were marking Adult Bronze and Silver FS with IJS, my second mark would have been 10. Not bad considering that I volunteered at the same competition the day before on my feet for 8 hours after training for 2 hours and then teach learn to skate for an hour before heading to the competition to volunteer. I also only was able to get 6 hours sleep if I was lucky before competiing.
