I'd be more than willing to purchase them from you. Contact me at my garbage address boazehud@yahoo.com and we'll swap email addresses. Thanks, Jon.

The one we're rolling on is a Mogema as well, I don't know what the model is. (My guess is it won't be long before the Sultan of Skate tells us though)

I'm running Bones Swiss 6 right now, Napalm is on BSB micro's. Although we have several sets of cheapy ABEC 7's we use, lately we've been inclined to stick with the "finer" pieces.

Yes, Dougp (on this board as well) is sort of the main organiser.

Tuesday, did some hard miles with a few training buddies at Dyer. Had 2 drag races from standing start, about a mile long. My reaction was a bit too slow the first time, so 2 of them got away pretty quick, but I was not too far behind all the time. I thought I could attack uphill later, but my leg was so tired that I could only maintain the distance.

The second time, did got a good start, and stayed 2nd until the end.

Wednesday, did a few miles, mostly low to moderate intensity......

The race is less than 4 days away....... kind of excited and worried about it.....

Hi Mark, Jon & CM,

The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is 72 miles across northern Idaho. It's a great trail, scenic, with very little traffic, and smooth (except for skattered gavel). For the past three years a bunch of skaters have met there on the Fourth of July weekend. This year we had 42 skaters from several states and Canada. It's kind of taken on a life of it's own now, but I'll continue to make arrangements along with shesk8 and others. Groups of skaters meet up in the morning, pick a starting place, and go skate as much as they want, maybe 30 - 50 miles a day. We typically don't skate it end to end, but you could. This year a woman in our group skated 62 miles on Saturday and 72 miles on Monday (and skated or bicycled the other three days, too).

Doug

See Code! I told you there'd be answers.

Dougp - Thanks for the cap. As far as the scattered gavels goes though, are there a lot of deposed judges in the area? I hope they weren't skating and that's all that's left of them after the coyotes were finished. Going to have to figure on two more bodies next year I guess, but CM worries me a little because he'll probably want to do the full length, and in one day, and at a heart rate under 30. JB

Sick puppies, that is what you all are. But I'd have to show up just to see the freak show And it is so close that it would be hard not to justify it.

Woohoo! another personal best on the hilly loop. Short skate but intense. Did the seven miles in 28:24 and cut over 30 seconds off yesterday's mark. I am seeing that the refinements in technique are really making a difference. I don't know really that they are refinements... More like renovations, something more extensive. The fixes are working.

Oh yeah, heard a jet and looked up into the blue to see a heron soaring down to the lagoon. It made my heart sing! Auspicious? It felt that way.

No more skating until Sunday morning... I can't wait! This is going to be great!

CodeMonkey,
I have been meaning to say thankyou for the nutritional and other advice. It has made a huge difference this summer. One Sunday while the forum was down I did 3 1/2 hours of cardio.(It was two hours of skating and 90 minutes of biking at high intensity.) That was huge for me. The next day I didn't have any "issues" or soreness. That would be the glutamine helping the recovery. Good stuff! thanks for the help!

Mark, love the pictures of the Eddy camp. Looks like an intense edge control training session. Did you learn substantially new things or was this more another take on a lot of drills you perhaps learned with your club?

5-6 hours tops I'm guessing, not sure exactly where you are in WA. 29 hours for me, whew. With that many skaters it really sounds like a blast. Surely, Code will release a half dozen or so of his coeds for us to flirt with.

Hmmm....

"Oh Honey..."
"Yes?"
"I'm going to Idaho...for the weekend..."
"Why?"
"Skating..."
"Who will be there?"
"Guys from the skating forum."
"Why are you shaving??? and cutting your hair???"
"Oh, nothing..."
"Who else is going to be there?"
"Just a handful of cute coeds from Texas...Owww! Ouch! Arrrgghhh!"

Can we just imagine it? It might be safer

It would be about 8 hours for me.

Thanks!

One of the downsides of our team is that we do not do enough drills.

My first real instruction in skating was last years Eddy clinic. This year I felt more confident, but still I could barely do half the stuff he had us do. So for the next few weeks I'm starting back at first principles. I can now glide for 50m, in the semblance of a straight line, on my left skate in an ampersand position. My right skate I roll off the outside edge and shoot off to the side after about 3m And don't get me even started on RH cross overs... I can fake a LH one but I'm all over the map on a RHer.

I can now appreciate how Eddy was teaching us and what the drills are meant to accomplish.

Watched excellent race videos twice, thrice, and in slow mo.

Twiddling my thumbs, hoping for the rain to go away.
in watching the "Course Open (premiers tours)" section of this race, i find it amazing and instructive at how the majority of skaters (most importantly) have no underpush, and (of lesser concern) don't efectively draft or work with their pace lines at all, while at the same time, the camera/motorcyclist races up to the lead pack and viola! - smooth, efficient, underpush and effective paceline work. Watching these skaters without an underpush- it just looks painful, or at the very least, tiring to start the outpush from a position in line with the same shoulder.

That;s one thing i like about speed skating - the notion and realization that significant break-throughs are only one stride away. Your skating is only as good as your current stride, though you have every chance in the world to pull it all together in 3 seconds as you take your next...

Some (gbo) describe the bliss of skating for them. For me, it's more about exhilitration that comes from being in the moment of a well executed stride, the resultant rush of precarious speed, and the necessity to keep this mad dash somehow under control and modulated so that i can maintain it.

thanks for posting the links to these videos, can't wait to watch the rest of them later.
