Congratulations Buzz! You're braver than me.

November 10

2 hour indoor practice. I was just having the worst time - I felt unsteady and uncomfortable in the corners, and I kept screwing up. I was late for my relay tag, I messed up and went back out in the box when the relay was over, and I skipped a corner cuz I got spooked. To make things worse, afterwards we were supposed to have outdoor practice - I showed up and no one was there. I was pissed. I went back home, put on my skates and did 20 miles at Flatwoods, and it sucked. Just had a really bad skating day.

But.....

November 11

Today I wasn't expecting much - I'd had a couple of beers the night before, and after Saturday's performance well... you know. But I had a great practice! I was back into the groove, and stayed in the warmup almost to the end. No relays that day, but we did a lot of passing stuff and I finished with everyone else in the last drill. We had to do two sets of 4 minute squats, holy crap. My legs still hurt from that today. I had a great time and felt good afterwards. I did some pressure washing the rest of the day and practiced getting low while doing that too

Nov 6th:

2 hour indoor practice - Focus is on form (6 step)

Nov 8th:

2 hour indoor practice - Focus is on speed (your butt's on fire and your hair is catching!)

Nov 10th:

Skated Blackwater Trail from mile 2 to mile 9 and back. It's a converted railroad. I'm not sure of the elevation change but about three miles of it are up hill on the way out. It took me about an hour solo because I'm not working on sprinting, I'm working on DP and form.

Nov 11th:

Ditto on the 10th!

That's my best training week in a long long time.

Jeff

Good job, Josh! Congrats. Thanks for the picture link. I was all sweaty and nasty, ick! Too bad about the group shot, bummer!

Monday, indoor. Legs were really shaky during the little circle thing. Tried to squat low and push my right skate more but my legs didn't want to. Had to stop prematurely almost every drill. To make things worse, I felt like there's no ankle support at all, not matter how tight I did the laces........ really fustrating.

Nov. 12th Was going to take today off, but gless was off and it was in the mid 60's so we hit the trail for an easy ride. 20 miles in 1:13 138/176. I had a couple nice surges that felt pretty awesome. The rollers are an amazing tool.

Five ~10 minute chapters. Have not watched it myself yet though.
Finally watched this. Amazing to see all the injuries. They should try again with a 50 mile skate or 100 mile bike event, and see if they can get VO2 improvements without giving people permanent injuries.

But the real reason for my post - Woot! for over 5000 posts in this thread.

Nov 12 -- pm Indoor speed with Madeline

5 minute jog. Long paceline, 8 lap leads, followed by a burn pace. Then 20/15/10/5 (big kids & me ) 10/7/5/3 (little kids). 20 lap relay and cool down set of laps and then a reverse race -- turning right is hard!

Saturday: nada

Sunday: rode to the grocery store, 8.89 miles in 44:36, avg: 12.0mph (12.4mph there, 11.6mph back with the saddlebags full)

Monday: 16.83 miles in 1:29:18, avg: 11.3mph

I was shooting for 25+, but the tendons on the outside of my left ankle were getting rubbed pretty hard, so I figured I better cut it short so I can skate the rest of the week. And with a four miles run back to the house, I couldn’t risk waiting till the pain was unskatable.

I’ve been using the Lap button as I move from one part of campus to another, which separates the slow, crappy, transitional portions from the good stuff. Getting to and from campus is 9-12mph, but the places where I can really open up, with the grand, sweeping turns, I did a bunch of 14-15mph “laps.” (The one where I eventually caught and then passed some dude on a bike was my favorite.)

Nov. 13th AM 45 minutes on the rollers. New saddle (thanks gless) helped immensely. Couple weeks ago I got off the bike and my little guy was completely NUMB. That, I can tell you, is not good. 137/157 kept the cadence at about 95-100 and got the speed up. Average speed was 18.8, but I'm not sure if that means anything on the rollers, though the HR data would reflect some correlation between roller speed and road speed. Sunday I was practicing getting out of the saddle on the rollers and did that some more today. It's a little scary. Not even sure if you're supposed to do it, but I bet you are. I bet there are plenty of guys that can do it no hands all day long. Not quite there yet. Going to try to run tonite.

Oct 12: Only 3 people in my yoga class last night which meant it was incredibly, ridiculously, hard. We held warrior 2 for forever then transitioned to side angle and held that forever then transitioned to a twisted side angle and held that till I thought my legs needed amputation.

Rollers are all about spinning smoothly and as such generally aren't great for practicing field sprints unless you have really quick reflexes. It is, however, a wonderful tool for simulating outdoor crashes in the comfort of your living room. Please remember to wear your helmet.

Oh, and training log entry so somebody doesn't dog me about it...

Today: Injured putting on new speed skates. No skating for a week.

If somebody can sprint hands off on a roller, I'd love to see the video!

Y'all shouldn't be sassin' speedy, the skate goddess prolly
saw it comin' and threw a reverse dent in yo skatin' shoe.

As a peace gesture, I offer this advice: Cover it with
neosporin and change it 2-3 times a day.
Be cool and I'll call off my girl.

<heal quickly, but savor the mtb >

I was just saying is all. If you got it going on, you got it going on.

And thanks for the peace offering.

Haven't been on the bike hardly at all since I discovered skating, but it might be nice. Just have to make the best of things for now.

(Yeah, right. Gosh dang'it, heal already, heal, heal I say. Are you healed yet? Awww, come on already...)
