I am adding some hip abductor moves to my leg workout, since a friend of mine mentioned that I don't use my hips enough when I skate (she's actually a personal trainer/coach so I totally trust her opinions and advice.) She did say that overall my stride and technique look good - just need to open up a bit more.

the ONLY time I've ever barfed after a workout was the first time I did P90X. It was gross but apparently not uncommon... I've had an upset stomach after skating plenty of times but I think it's from the heat. I don't want to get barf on my nice new shiny suit...
