Today was a great day!!  I finally have landed all of my double jumps in my program!  I usually get so tired by the time I have to do my first double jump that I either fall on the jump or I start to jump and then I just pull out of it before I even go all the way around.  Today was completely different, I landed all of my jumps nicely without falling or pulling out of it!  I think I wasn't as tired because first every night I do about a half hour to an hour of off ice jumps and then every time I finish my program on ice my coach (my mom) tells me to take two laps.  At first I thought this was stupid, but now I know that this is definitely helping my cardiovascular system and making it easier for me to do my whole program without stopping!  If I go to the Olympics one day and can't even skate to a program that is 1 minute and 39 seconds, I definitely won't be able to do a 3 minute program!  I'm glad I'm taking her advice now!  :)
