    What is your normal practice day/week?

    For anyone practicing their skating now... what is your daily or weekly routine for practices right now?

    For me, summer practices go like this...
    Monday - Thursday...
    5:00 a.m.: Wake up, jog to the rink (it's about 2 miles), stretch out once I get there.
    6:00 - 8:00: skating practice
    9 - 10:15: Class
    11:00 - 12:30: Back to the rink for more practice
    1:15 - 5:45: Trapeze practice
    6:00 - 8:00: Another class
    8:30 - 10:00: Pilates or Ballet, depending on the day
    10:30: BED FINALLY!!

    Friday - Sunday:
    7:00 a.m: Wake up and jog to the rink again
    8:00 - 10:00: Skating Practice
    10:30 - 12:00: Off-ice practice
    12:00 - 4:00: Chill out time
    4:30 - 5:30: Trampoline Practice
    6:00 - 9:30: Trapeze
    10:00 - 11:30: Skate again (except Sunday, only one practice that day... it's strange practicing late at night though )
    12:00: BED! (or 10:30 on Sundays)

    I'm kind of lucky in that I live in NYC, so everything is close. Pilates and ballet are actually IN the building I live in, and trapeze and trampoline are in the same place and within walking distance of the rink. I'm kind of unlucky in the fact that I never get to bed on time! But I guess that is my fault... and with that said... bed time for me

    What about everyone else?

    You only have 3hrs15mins of class time (school per day)?!!! And when do you study? I didn't see that scheduled in anywhere. ( Are you post secondary student ?)

    I've also got to know, don't you feel tired? Wow! You must be in amazing shape!

    Taking classes extra classes over the summer, so class hours aren't that long now. If something comes up, like a test, I'll cut back a little bit on what I do in the evening and stay up later. But when I study or do school work, it's usually in splits! I keep stretching while I work. LOL

    During the school year, things are more hectic... but being in college let's me arrange my schedule so I can still fit skating in twice a day along with trapeze, but it cuts down on m y sleep time A LOT!!! I have insomnia too :-/ which can be a pain. I went to bed at my normal time tonight, but just woke up now and can't get back to sleep. Ugh. It's going to be a loooonnngggg day tomorrow.

    I've always had really intense schedules my whole life, so I'm used to it now. But back then, I didn't love the things I did like I love skating and trapeze. It's easy to work hard when you are working at things you love.
