On February 28th Keara landed numerous BIG, Beautiful, perfect Double Salchows. After that her coaches asked her to do it with the arm up feature. SHE DID IT!!! It looked awesome! Below are both videos. #hardwork #doublesalchow #proudparents #usfigureskating
Her coach posted this on his Facebook page.
This morning my girl Keara started landing “real” 2S and hitting every single one of them. Then Mandy asked her to try with the arm up feature and we can say is not too shabby for the first time! Go Keara!! So proud of you!!
Recently Keara was asked to be in a off-ice stretching video. This video is for a personal trainer out of Eden Prairie, Minnesota who has a company that offers video subscriptions for everyone (including figure skaters). However he also offers other training programs; One on One personal training, small group training, and is a nutrition and wellness consultant, etc.
Visit his website 1solidcore.com to learn more and sign up . Make sure you told him you saw Keara’s video!! 🙂 Keara is signed up and will be doing the stretching, and strength training, landing exercises for jumps, etc….I might even jump in and “attempt” (key word is attempt) 😉 HA!
Here is a demo of the off-ice stretching video Keara did. The video that will be available online is longer and more complex, however this gives you a quick view.
Keara sent me this video from skating today. I told her I wanted proof of her double salchow. So proud of her!! It’s HER birthday gift to ME! ❤️⛸
Keara earned 2 ducks today!! 1-for doing 8 revolutions in her cannonball spin, and 2nd for doing 8 revolutions in her broken leg sit spin! Wooohoo!!! Trust me this is a big deal!! She earned it!!
After a couple weeks of practicing on the pole harness this happened yesterday!! A cheated axel! Woohoo! She was a tad short in rotation. Her coach says she’ll be doing it clean very soon! Stay tuned.. she’s one step closer to her goal of reaching Nationals by 2022!
Keara has been working on a new spin! A Low sit variation. She learned it last week and has been practicing. As you can see her practice has paid off!!
