And here is my little snowflake. Yes, that's a pail on his head.

I know you have a coach and all, but I liked this picture sequence of the pivot turn that I just ran across.

It's a good stable way to make a really sharp turn, and it leaves you ready to crossover and power out of the turn. Speed applies it differently from hockey, but the concept is verrrrry similar.

The weight is still 90% on the left leg. The problem indoors is if you do that people will just pull away from you. Missing the opening crosses in the corner translates into a gap that is hard to close.

Right, indoors it looks like people power all the way thru the turn. Cool stuff.

Oct 31: No yoga even though it's my usual night. I skipped because I had 3 photos in a group show at a small gallery. It was an interesting experience to say the least. I wish I had gone to yoga first.

Thanks for the kind words earlier, Birgit. It is always fun to see everyone's posts-especially when I am taking a day off. I have officially skated 5 days in a row!

Oct.30
8 miles in Flatwoods-very tough day-slow at around 7.1

Oct.31
8 miles in Flatwoods-better (7.4), but had company whose whole life history I learned (married,45,5yr old kid, etc.....)

Nov.1
15 miles in Flatwoods at 7.8

My best since the last Squiggy was 8.5

It takes longer at this age, but it is still there...just takes a lot of coaxing.

Pop tarts ...

Oct 30th-1st

Ate a pop tart for breakfast, and 12oz of Diet Mt Dew (~ 1 nodoze).

(I had been eating some heart smart granola bars with only 6g of sugar instead ... the store quit carrying them )

Oatmeal for lunch, meat and vegetables for dinner.

11/1 I did about 30-45 minutes of standing on my balance disk - could feel it in my legs too.

Painted the entry way, ran out of paint (2 gallons) on the last part. Will finish tonight. Some new elbow pads (smaller) and compression crash-pads coming tonight.

I might be a skin suited weenie soon! With protection

I got a nice DST 20 miler in last night after work. Last Thansgiving I skated in my shorts on Thanksgiving, which is rare for Michigan. Just might happen again this year.

So with a balance disk do you stand on one foot or both?

One thing I was thinking was that if you position your feet on the disk properly, you can get more used to the feeling of keeping your weight back toward your heels more instead of on the front half of the foot.

That's an interesting idea, I'll try moving my toes to the front of the disk. Actually, I heal carve too much I think.

I did try some one footed, but mostly 2 foot. The little card that came with it didn't have great instructions exercises (edit).

I also tried about 5-10 minutes of crouching in skating position. That hurts more than actually skating.

What's neat is that you can do that while watching TV. I'm going to do this while watching the Nova Marathon episode tonight (re-air) for a mental and physical workout

That's the point, right? :-) It is amazing how quickly a muscle you have not worked before will tire out.

Also, it might be good for your ADD. ;-)
