Thanks!

One of the downsides of our team is that we do not do enough drills.

My first real instruction in skating was last years Eddy clinic. This year I felt more confident, but still I could barely do half the stuff he had us do. So for the next few weeks I'm starting back at first principles. I can now glide for 50m, in the semblance of a straight line, on my left skate in an ampersand position. My right skate I roll off the outside edge and shoot off to the side after about 3m And don't get me even started on RH cross overs... I can fake a LH one but I'm all over the map on a RHer.

I can now appreciate how Eddy was teaching us and what the drills are meant to accomplish.
