Another perspective is to consider that skating at one's best requires optimizing equipment (wheels, frames, boots), technique, and body, to a specific type of skating. Skaters have been known to decide which type of skating (e.g., indoor, track, marathon, A2A) to focus on for a season, and to optimize everything for that. Ths is done early enough in the season to build muscles and physiology must suitable for the selected type of skating, and tuned to the equipment.
