Heh. I still haven’t mastered that. I sense danger, my right foot goes back. (I’ve even caught my nervous system trying to send that signal when not on skates.) But t-stopping with my left foot? I can do it just enough to prove to someone that I can kinda sorta do it with either foot; but it’s a sham. I practice braking with my left foot occasionally, but not nearly often enough.

Tawni, great hearing that it's working out. But at the risk of projecting how I would do things all the time, LOSE THE FITNESS SKATES ALREADY! You are off on the voyage, now cut the cord and set sail already. Do it. Don't make me bastardize another metaphor, becuase you know i will....

yeah, why bother (t-stopping with the other foot)? You can only do it one side at a time, so just use the side that's strongest. If you want to practice some stopping, you could practice the alternate foot step-stop (what's it called?)

All in good time. I still want to do my fitness skating while I build miles (and confidence) on my speed skates which isn't going to happen until I feel ready to venture forth into the world. I'm thinking probably 2 weeks daily of practicing t-stops should do. Plus, I still *like* my VMax, so there. Nyah!

Skate towards traffic.

You’ll master it soon enough.

Back in the day, when being a self-taught computer graphics dude was uncommon enough to impress people, my favorite way of explaining how I did it was, “The best way to learn something is to promise it to a client on Tuesday.”

No skating during the week - too much traveling with late flights.

Strapped on the Heart Monitor to try the Garmin on the Interstate overpass in Miramar. I skated four trips up the overpass. Speed drops down to 7-8 mph going up the overpass "mountain" and peaks at just over 20 mph coming down. Interesting the difference when I was really skating down the hill as opposed to just cruising - over 3 mph. The road goes from the low spot of 17 feet above sea level to just over 50 feet above sea level at the crown of the overpass.

It took just over three minutes to get my heart rate up to 155 bpm and then it stayed steady on a gradual uptake to about 170 bpm for the rest of the skate.

Overall I did the 6.28 miles is 29.07 at an average pace of 4.38 minute miles.

We had the first real "cold snap" so the temperature was a "bitter" 59 d and 80 h. ;-)

Nov 17

10K actually 10K + .2 miles (my pack got lost) in 25:51 for a 15mph avg

HR 181:197

This was with my 301 so the HR might be off.

Absolutely wet pavement. Held onto the lead pack for 1 mile. They were within sight for 2. Then started collecting the sophomores and junior from my team.

1st in age group, 7th overall.

Wow, 188. I've seen 182, I think, as a PR for me on my HRM. Averaging 181, and hitting 197, would be amazing.

No, you got the latest episode of the three stooges show. LOL.

Good going. From the pics it looked like it let loose (rained) during the race (?).

What about Madeline? You didn't forget Madeline, did you?!
