    Do you plan what you're going to do in practice before you go? I personally don't specifically, I'll just decide while I'm driving to the rink if I'm going to work on toe jumps or edge jumps or going into my jumps at a faster speed, or combinations, or whatever. So do you plan ahead of time? What does your plan look like?

    I plan mine, down to the minute xD I decide the exact spins I'll do and which jumps and approximately how much time on each jump and how many times I'll do program runthroughs or footwork runthroughs.

    But I do that 'cause I skate 2-3x a week and am homeschooled, so I have nothing else to do besides obsessively plan skating.

    Um I just let it ride. It's almost evenly divided among warm up / moves, spins, and jumps. Within the slotted spin / jump time I run through everything then practice whatever needs the most work.

    I usually go in with a general plan -- I'm going to work on moves, or freestyle, or both.

    Sometimes I have a more specific goal -- I'm going to run the whole moves test, or I'm going to run my program, or I'm going to focus on three turns, or jumps, or spins, today.
