The Daily Grind

Recently, I’ve gotten the same question from different people about what my schedule is like day in and day out.  It’s definitely not anything too exciting but I’ll just go ahead and share it:

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays:

7:00 am – Wake up, slowly roll out of bed, brush teeth, wash face, make breakfast/coffee
7:30 am – Leave for physical therapy
8:00 am – 10:00 am – Physical therapy for the bummed knee (shouldn’t be bummed for long though)
10:00 am – 1:00 pm – Part-time job # 1 (office stuff)
1:00 pm – 1:30 pm – Make lunch, eat lunch (usually something light bc it’s before practice)
1:30 pm – Leave for gym
2:30 pm – 3:30 – Part-time job #2 (private gymnastics coaching)
3:30 pm – 8:30 pm – Gymnastics training
9:30 pm – Back home, make dinner (usually something with rice), eat dinner, shower
11:00 pm – Pass out

Tuesdays, Thursdays:

8:00 am – Wake up, roll out of bed, etc (same old routine as M, W, F)
8:30 – 12:00 pm – Part-time job #1 (office stuff)
12:00 pm – 12:30 pm – Make lunch, eat lunch
12:30 pm – Leave for gym
1:30 pm – 5:30 pm – Coach (I volunteer coach for the Stanford team 2x/week), while I also go through my own training
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm – Part-time job #3 (private subject tutor in English or Japanese)
7:30 pm – Home, make dinner, eat dinner, shower, and the deal
11:00 pm – Pass out


AM: Training (Training only on Saturday. Sunday = day off)
PM: Judging gymnastics at local meets

So there you go.  Nothing too exciting right?  I’m sure my schedule will change up again once the competitive season ends for the collegiate guys and the junior kids (around April).  Plus, once my knee gets stronger, I probably won’t have to be in the training room 3-times a week.  For now, I’m taking it day by day!
