    Skating on the Planet

    So today I didn't jump a single salchow lol, but I learned how to do pistol pose! (it /is/ supposed to scratch a lot with the tail of the extended leg, right?)

    Hey, I started jumps and my backwards crossovers still suck jumping is just a matter of courage really, but the hard thing in skating, for me at least, is to do things cleanly and with a good technique, meaning executing even a simple step (like crossovers) in a beautiful way. So don't you worry about jumps for now. Even though you will probably start jumping waltz jump in less time than you think.

    Temporarily messing up the tempo of his 3A (which he is still landing btw, I think you are worrying too much without objective basis of concern) will not compromise his mission to land a +GOE 4A. And then of course practicing 4A will not stop him from practicing 3A. One thing is competition and another is practice. Plenty of people here already told you that his 3A's in practice were perfect. So I don't think overall he's messing it up at all.

    I rewatched Helsinki recently with the ita esp. It was obvious that there were troublesome ice conditions, and in fact Yuzuru was probably the only man left standing without even a fall at the end of the LP. But all of his jumps lacked the usual height, because of ice conditions. In the case of COR LP, his ankle was bad so it cannot be judged. In the case of the SP, this season was by far the best early season out of all his years as a senior, because he never once fell on a jump. He was clean all 3 times he skated. In the past, he usually nailed the 3A because he messed up the quads, so he put extra-focus on the 3A. I would say, on the contrary, that his 3A has become more beautiful, because it's become bigger and tighter. But this is just my opinion. EVEN IF 3A could have been influenced by 4A training. Even if it objectively was (which is not 100% sure), I'm sorry but... what gives? We're talking about 4A here. Yuzuru would gladly give up some of his 3A's perfection if it meant jumping a perfect 4A. I love 3A as much as the next person, but Yuzuru always wants to progress in the sport and jump new things, and 4A in particular has always been his dream. So I don't really understand people hoping that he doesn't mess with his 3A. Please Yuzuru, mess with your 3A as you want. It's all part of the learning process, and I think supporting Yuzuru as a sportsman also means understanding his vision of the sport, or trying to. He will never give up training the 4A because there is a risk of losing consistency in his 3A. And he shouldn't.

    Absolutely. That gong was made for 4A. I know how he thinks in terms of music and choreography because I think we share the same obsession of making everything fit with the beats of the music.

    Get inside his mind. The landing of the 4T3T at COR wasn't perfect at all. And I'm sure he's seen all the other moments in the program where he wasn't absolutely perfect. So I don't think he thinks he's perfected it. I think he wants to perfect it at Worlds. So everything depends on Worlds really... if he manages to skate perfectly or near perfectly both programs at Worlds (God, I hope so, I'm so down to see a perfect Origin live) then maybe he will feel the need to change air next season. But I do think that he thought Origin would suit 4A very well... maybe the 4A will be the main reason he will keep the program next season, if he does end up keeping it.

    I vote yes. LGC as short and Origin as Free, can you imagine, would the judges even survive till the medal ceremony

    Guys, I can't help but highlight the importance of Yuzuru's announcement regarding his goals for next year GP! I've read in the past weeks here some preoccupied users sharing their worries for his health. It's true, we didn't know anything about his rehabilitation up until now. We knew that his ankle went through a lot of distress and even if we knew that it was less severe than last year, I personally wasn't too optimistic about his overall condition. But now? If he's declaring that he wants to win everything in the GP next season, it means that he's probably sure he's going to fully heal, if he hasn't already fully healed, which means that his injury wasn't a permanent one, he is really going to come back in full force. I am so happy because of this

    Thanks! Yes, especially with the layback I think it should also help if we're going on a straight line. Btw it's outside edge on the front bent leg and outside edge on the back leg, right? I will practice it on a line next time c:

    Soooo I filmed some stuff today. Good stuff I'm confident about (SE and IB?) and Salchows (not confident lol I hate them fuck them). If you have suggestions and see something I should fix in my jumps and Salchows please share. Things I know: my exits are terrible (gotta practice those backwards balances).

    It's like Yuzuru has inadvertedly but kind of willingly "monopolized" the entire figure skating business. I am realizing it more and more every day.

    Oh noes! But she also knows I am a big Yuzuru fan... oh well, if it comes to that, I will accept to work with Japanese ladies. But I will absolutely take time off during Men's short and Free, idgaf.

    I'm kinda lucky because I just became friends with a person who was vice-organizer in Milan and I can bet my ass she will be there for Turin as well. We go to skating classes together

    If I know anything via my Italian skating fb group I will link it here immediately! Btw, for the satellites who followed my mission to become voluntary for Milan and Saitama (this one failed, but I still got a ticket), get ready for me becoming a voluntary in Turin This time though I'm not sure I should tell them I speak Japanese lol. They will definitely put me to interact with enthusiastic and kinda grumpy Japanese ladies all day every day. Re: Family's reunion such beauty cannot be fully described

    Anna and Luca's number was amazing 😍 I hope I can meet them again soon... some of us even took private lessons with them. I couldn't both because expensive af and because I thought it would be a waste for them for what I can do now xD which is nothing much.

    Oooh yeah that sounds like my problem allright! And I've heard the hook thing about the Salchow so next time I should really try and search for it. And hahahah watching your rinkmate jump sounds hilarious and yes I asked my coach "why do I land off-axis and fall?" and she answered "because you take off off-axis. You land the same way you jump". It sounds like a very useful thing to remember.

    Oh no, I hope it's not anything too serious I've been having pains during and after skating myself... I think I broke my hips while doing an inside SE without the proper warmup first.

    Skating on the Planet

    Actually it was a little underwhelming... I didn't meet with Luca or Matteo or Anna, because there wasn't even a proper gala at the end with all the athletes on the ice - and during our number, I was with zero warm up, I was nervous, and couldn't manage for the life of me to jump. So I didn't xDDDD Ah the nerves! But now I know how athletes feel when they pop.
  22. I would say you are correct in part. When it becomes a full-on disorder it affects your daily life, your relationship with everyone close to you, your mood, everything depends on your weight and what you eat. Sometimes it's more hidden though, and in those cases it is usually coupled with other disorders (depression, isolation, dissociation etc etc). I've had a friend who recovered from bulimia after thinking that she would die from it. Her case was a standard, very visible case of ED. What was not visible, however, was that both her mother and her father displayed heavy symptoms of ED, although they were perfectly functional in their daily lives - they went to work, they paid the bills, they slept at night, and so on. But the father would regularily puke after eating if he felt like it, the mother was aware of it, and the mother would skip random meals, and make her daughter feel guilty for eating instead. So actually, I think one can go and be successfull and perform well and win in a sport even if they have an ED. That's the big illusion of ED, especially Anorexia - you think you are in control. You are in total control of yourself, until you reach the breaking point - and then you realize that it's the disease that's controlling you. So actually, I think there are plenty of athletes of all sports who suffer from ED, but they don't know it yet. Or they pretend they don't know. And they're just waiting to reach their breaking point.
