*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default Indoor Skate Training - Tracking distance and speed?

Newbie here! How can I track distance and speed indoors? My GPS isn't reliable inside.

Training for my first marathon!

Distance is typically used as track size?? Does the rink have a 100 meter (or what ever fits in the floor) oval either USARS or NIRA marked out?? Count laps.

Time is a stop watch. Simple as that. It has been reliable for decades.

Thanks for replying! Unfortunately I'm training on a basketball court so there are no markers for skating. Counting the laps gets tedious, as you can imagine. But I've been using a stopwatch with a lap counter.

I may just end up biting the bullet and skating outside.
