Gosh, it was like putting together a complicated puzzle, but I've finally come up with my new training schedule for the summer. I'm trying to incorporate moves and freestyle on-ice practices with strength training (2x week), endurance (1x), flexibility (5x) and off-ice jumping/sport cords (1x). Plus I've worked in my racquetball league matches (3x) and bowling (1x).
I'm going to skate mornings on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday (+lesson), and add 15-30 minutes of flexibility stretches after each one. I'll also skate Friday afternoons and add a 15-20 minute endurance exercise at the end of the practice.
I talked to my coach tonight and we're going to do a double lesson this Thursday AND next, plus add a lesson on Friday so that we can bang out my Bronze freestyle program (finally) so I can kamikaze practice it before testing (hopefully) on July 18.
Phew, this all is making me tired just thinking about it!
