The superman glide is good too.
Maybe: superman glide a few times to find that sense of balance, then skate drill turning effortlessly to breathe (its an exaggerated over-rotation but should feel balanced and easy). Once you feel alright with that do a few repeats of a catch-up style drill being patient with that lead hand.
Yah, I do feel my lead hand at times going down ...
I'll be testing again tomorrow
