5:45 Sluggish getting out of bed, as always.
6 Quick breakfast, usually peanut butter toast, before warming up for my morning practice session. The frigid rink air wakes me up. I’ve got a full training ahead. Running programs and jumping the first session.
8 Ice cut. I defrost in the heated lobby and nibble on some snacks to keep me going. Back on the ice 15 minutes later to work on spins, choreography and step sequences.
9:15 Morning session complete, it’s time to cool down with some stretching and refueling. Off to school.
9:40 First class: AP Environmental Science. After some lectures and note taking, off to study trees. Today it’s the Aesculus californica.
12:55 Lunch time. Rice with chicken and mixed vegetables satisfies my appetite—for now.
15:05 School’s out! Now back to ice rink for afternoon training.
17:30 My hair’s all frilled up by this point. Off to do some cross-training—today it’s running around downtown Oakland.
18:30 Ready for a shower and dinner—more rice, among other dishes.
19:30 Time to start on some homework: an English essay, textbook reading, Calculus study notes.
21 Need a break. Using this time to update my website with new press articles.
22 Last-minute reviewing for tomorrow’s AP Computer Science test. Time for bed, sadly. Have to wait until tomorrow to finish David Epstein's The Sports Gene. ‘Night!
