10/13 - 18.2 miles at team practice, 10 with the fast group. As I mentioned the 'd' recovery has helped my glide, getting me more energy/benefit for the effort. Farthest I went with them so far.

10/14 - Rained out!

I figured if I am going to try the SBW 25 fun rider I better start increasing my mileage. So this morning I planned to skate my longest single roll - 16 miles. At 7.45 am it was overcast, 82 d and only 50 h so I thought I'd be a shoe in.

The wind was 10 k steady with gusts to 15. Dead in my face on the outbound so I figured it would really bring me home. I made the turn at 43 minutes and knew I was in good shape. The breeze way pushing me and I was cruising. Between miles 11 and 12 I hit a metal clip that I saw at the last second and took a spill. I almost recovered but not quite. Sat on the curb and get myself together. Once composed I started rolling again.

Still completed in 87 and change. Happy with the results. Just a small scrap on the forearm, elbow and right "upper thigh". Back is sore now.

Thanks for the tips on the heart rate monitor - I don't think I've bothered to clean it once since I got it

Should have skated today, but I drank too much last night. Sounds like I missed a fun skate.

That explains all the empty bottles...........

Thursday, outdoor at Okeeheelee. I guess the legs weren't fully recovered yet, so gave myself a 2 day rest.

Saturday, party at Lauren & Jessica's place.

Sunday, did the first meet of the South Florida Speed League, outdoor at Port St. Lucie. Did the 400m and 10k. It's on a smooth 400m running track. Ankles were a bit shaky during the warm-up and first race, but didn't have any leg, feet or muscle issue. But did have a hard time breathing during the 10k, and felt dizzy too...... I guess that's because I am not used to races like this, and I haven't done much intervals for a while.

Finished dead last in both races, but I did them for experience.

Steet, glad you're okay - buzz - way to finish! Just keep building from there.

Jess...tsk tsk, how are you ever going to challenge me at air hockey with that kind of training regimen!

Hey streetsk8r, good skate. It's always good to have the headwind on the way OUT, huh?

Yes, it was a good skate

Just a thought.

As far as I know you are using my polar watch, right?

If so, would a heartrate-band bought for another polar watch have any thing to with this?
Like some frequency thing or what not?

If anybody thinks that could be the reason to some of these high readings you are getting lately, remind me, and you can get the HR-band that came with the watch.

Or is this totally unrelated to the weird readings???

Seriously though, it's only an issue if you're a wanna-be fast skater.

If you're really a fast skater, you can make the light.

If you're not fast, and happy with that, you don't get succkered in by the green light when you crest the hill....

It's just those of us who think they are fast that see the green light and think we can make it that get scared.

Oct 12 2.5 mile skate just because.
Oct 13 9.5 miles bike ride in 34 minutes, out to enjoy the pretty leaves.

I've seen countdown timers on green lights before. That would certainly be helpful to you in that situation.

So are you carrying a small airhorn?

Oct 14

BWI trail
10.8mi, 41:07min, 15.8mph, HR167/184

Skaterquest came up from Virginia to skate with us. There was around 20 of us total. It took only 1/2 mile of nice group skaring before it became a "see how fast you can get around the airport" contest for the speedy ones. So naturaly I took off after them. After mile three, there was 3 guys up front, and me and 3 others in a second line, and the whole rest of the skaters doing a more social lap. The guys I skated wih were faster than me but because I know the trail, I was able to keep up and finish together.

Yep, it's your Polar - but it never gave me any weird readings until now, so it had to be some kind of anomaly. I think I'll buy into it picking up someone else's heart rate, because I was with a large group of people wearing not only heart rate monitors, but lots of bike computers as well. I've heard before those can throw off readings too.

October 15

1 hour and some trail run at Flatwoods. I kept it at a nice easy steady pace, and created a cool little trail route for myself. I ran 1 mile out on the extension to Bruce B Downs, hopped on Squiggy, took that out to the levee, ran that for about a mile, got on the main trail which connected to Panther (awesome little singletrack trail with lots of curves and bumps ) which let out just a couple hundred feet from where I started on the extension at Squiggy. Not sure on the mileage but I would guess somewhere around 7-8 miles, all offroad. Didn't bring my ipod because running on the trail and listening to the sounds of the woods is so relaxing. I saw a couple of deer and moved a little turtle off the loop just before a bike friend of mine came barreling right for it. Average heart rate 150 max 166

Jessica:

Try a new battery in your HRM sensor. If it's strong, the signal won't get mixed up with other people's. Those little batteries last forever, so you never know. Don't throw away the old in in case I'm nuts.

If you have a coded strap than it wasn't from another skater's HRM.
The reason why your heart rate was up, is because of another skater that was there.

Not sure if it's coded - but this one isn't the watch that came with the strap. I don't think it matters - treadmills pick up my strap too so I think as long as there's a signal it'll pick up whatever's nearby.

The 209 heart rate was from a group ride - there weren't any other skaters there

Oct 14: Another 9 miles at 12 miles an hour. The first 3 mile lap I thought was a scorcher. I was actually doing 12 mph, asked a biker, at the end of the long uphill where I am usually at my slowest. I was sure that at least for that lap I would be faster than 12 average. I was.... by 1 minute. 3 miles in 14 minutes . Whatever. I really tried to pay attention to my form. I discovered that I am more on my inside edge than I thought on the right foot. Also coincidentally where I am getting some blisters. Next skate I am going to move my frame just a little.
