There has been much hand wringing and fuss over skaters having to skate both the team and individual events at Sochi. It made me wonder:
A - How often do most skaters skate their full programs in training? With all the jumps and levels for spins and steps. Once a week? More? Less? I'm sure it varies with individual skaters and coaches.
B - How much more energy goes into a competitive performs versus a training performance?
