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.

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.
If you are willing to compromise on results, by all means, compromise on equipment. If you think you can get by, you most likely will...Just get by.

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.
