Did my first 22 km skate, or half marathon if you like, yesterday in 25+ years.

Here are the results from my mates GPS app on his phone.

Looks like just under an hour?
Excellent pace. What wheels & surface quality? Lazer Blaze-III?
Any wind, hills or tight turns to slow you down from going even faster?
What was the loop distance? Looks like 16 laps by the peaks on the graphic.

The spike at the right... a short break? :wink:

Great. 22.2 km/h average is very impressive.

Armadillo.

In case you cannot read the stats on the pic

Distance was 21.97Km
Time was 59 min 6 secs
Avg speed 22.2km/h
Max Speed 29.2km/h

The track is approx a 280M course around netball courts. So the total number of laps was 80. Basically it is a flat level court. The surface is bitumen, fairly smooth. There was a slight head wind down the western side and a crosswind on the southern.

I was using Laser Matrix Wheels, which are a 70mm, 80A duro. Plates were Boen Speed mounted on Cruciani speed boots.

There was 5 of us skating, 3 quad skaters and 2 inliners. The two inliners were a 15 yo junior and a 23 yo hockey player. Where as the quad skaters were 49, 48 and 45 yo, lol. But one of the quad skater was coming in and out. So mostly was just 4 of us.

Hope that clarifies things for you.

Followed this up the next day with a 14K indoor session.

Thanks. I was assuming the spikes on the graph were lap count related. I now see that the area of blue filled in on the map represents a larger number of laps. Can I assume that the group was sharing the lead somewhat equally?

Just trying to gauge my own level of speed relative to the more seasoned and skilled long time racers.

Of the graph.

All I am really interested in is the total distance and times.

But yeah the 4, sometimes 5, of us shared the lead one lap at a time.
