From the anime, this is how I understand the timeline:
day 1: skaters arrive, check in to hotel; Chris and Victor hang out at the pool while Yuuri sleeps
day 2: public practice, then sight-seeing, ring exchange, group dinner
day 3: short program, Yuuri gives Victor the "let's end this speech", Victor cries tears of liquid diamond
Then we can't tell if there's a full day off from competition or not. There's just a line about how Yuuri hasn't shown up to any public practices.
day 4 or 5: free skate, the hug that never ends
day 5 or 6: exhibition, banquet
Have I missed anything? Is this your understanding too? Would you find it jarring for fic to assume the short and free programs happen on consecutive days instead?
