F2B, sorry to hear you were down and out for a while. And, wear a helmet, you are a role model now...

Trainign has sucked for me since the end of June. I sold my barbell and 265lbs of iron weight, my plyo box, and my weight stands. Then we moved 3 states to an apartment. My lack of ready access to a skate spot, a gym, or time to exercise is starting to show. My back is sore, and I feel weak all over. Still skated a marathon on July 26, with surprising results, finished in 1:38:58. Not complaining since it is the hardest course we skate, the one in Chicago.

Any suggestions for lifting replacements i can do with adjustable dumbbells?

Been too busy skating to post. Got 12 sessions in since my last post on the 31st. Totally 17 hours.

Caught this today at the outdoor spot.

Went back last night for another hour and a half, and then again this morning for an hour.
Managed to catch this: https://youtu.be/5OpdYuW1VjM

Learning to grind at the concrete park!

Took the day off tuesday. Had to move my son out and into his new dormatory at Ok State U. OSU!
Got 1h14m on wednesday,
And 2 session of 1h 15m each yesterday (2h30m total)

After learning to grind in the bowls, my skatepark addiction has multiplied by a factor of 3!

Held down the lodge the past two days.
I love wood. Doesn't even hurt when you fall on it! (after years of concrete conditioning!)

An hour both days.

It was a flat loop course, very smooth, very little wind, anyone could draft anyone. All of which made it much easier than 2 A2As, lol. I'm signed up to do my first A2A, and I'm very scared!

I got over the soreness today, but haven't skated yet.

I was on slightly worn 100mm MPC xxfirm Turbos. That's what I trained on, so I stuck with them. Mostly I noticed no difference skating with ppl on 110s, although one woman significantly out-rolled me downhill on 3x110, but she was smaller, so had a good draft from the guy in front, while I had less of a wind shadow from her.

The mens 24hr solo winner was a Georgian(as in Ga, USA) whose handle was A2A2A2A2A. He skated 100 laps (436km) in 19 hours, NO Drafting (always solo or pulling was his self-set challenge). Mind Blown.

Was that Sam Fistel? He is known for doing A2A as a round trip: Atlanta to Athens to Atlanta. In my A2A list archive, he mentions doing Montreal in previous years too.

Default First Post In This Thread

Hey Folks,

Looks like you could use some company in here. Finally got the new skates broken-in, heat-molded, and all of that skating foreplay over with so now I can start racking up some miles.

Before I post my skate for today it would be good to tell you speed demons that I do have lots of speed skating background (and hockey) but been away from that for about 10 years. I am more of a distance freak these days but also use my skates for commuting in an urban environment, running errands, and sometimes feel the need to thrash the local park fitness trails backwards. I chose my new skates based on all of those trade-offs and now am rolling on Powerslide Hardcore EVO 2.0 sweetness. I can run the wheels rockered or not by switching the placement of the the 80mm with the 76mm wheels in the frames. So I can kick it right out of my front door ON MY SKATES, head out to the local fitness paths and mix it up with the Tri-Athletes in training, then skate to a local park, change the wheel setup and knock over some tiny cones. Since I no longer race, I really don't care about top-end speed too much, but I do still hate it when ANYONE passes me. Luckily (i guess) I am still the fastest skater in town, mainly because I am the ONLY skater in my city doing and kind of distance work. And I just want ONE sweet pair of skates

For now, anyway...

OK...now you know why my posted speeds are sub 20 mph to say the least. Enough excuses, here are my results. I will contribute here fairly often as weather permits.

FROM: Strava

Default Another Day Worth Living!

I wanted to see how my new skates would feel today since I put in 26 miles for the first time on them yesterday. Ankles were a little tender at first but once the endorphins kicked in I was mostly comfortable.

I ran some errands, grabbed a smoothie, and hit a bunch of parks and bike paths. Weather was great.



I am at 87.2 miles for the week - about 55 on the new skates and the balance on my longboards. Does not look good for getting to 100 skating miles though. Things to do and sketchy weather forecast.

BTW...I do not keep track of my cycling miles since I don't own a car (since 1989) and use my bikes a ton and often to get my skates or longboards to a nice skating location. I never have less than 50 miles cycling in a week unless I commute on my skates or boards during perfect weather.

Fuss, I am an active Team Rainbo member. Raced their colors at the Chicagoland. I was the goofy looking guy in the glasses with the Contour helmet camera. See if you can pick that one out of the crowd. Problem is, with two very small kids, there isn't time to work out, especially with a couple of hours of commute each day. Never knew now much time commuting took out of life until I didn't have to do it for a couple of years. I am working on organizing a weights program with some cardio for base this off season, though. I am hoping to get back to a regular routine here in the near future.

Not exactly a "training" skate, but I do almost everything on wheels, so it is sometimes hard to separate the efforts. Since my GPS recorded the temperature during my skate as 106-108F I'm calling it a training skate for staying heat acclimated.

Explored a new park in New Orleans on my daily "smoke break". Since I don't smoke I can blast off from my workplace on my skates or longboard (I keep one of each at work) and do a lap around the French Quarter or....the new park. Out and back one time from work is about 3 miles.
