Aug 17
Where: Seahawk stadium parking lot
What: drills
Conditions: Overcast, 57F, 6MPH, dry

25 minutes of drills: sculling, ampersand glide, set down glide and LH crossover fall. Working in slow motion/correctly, is much harder than at speed /wrong. I'm now perpetuating the pain from the weekend. Tonight 2 hours of something -- maybe I'll just do drills with Madeline.

I think it would be great to all get together in Couer d'Alene. It looks just beautiful and I like the fact that it is very free form. We could all skate our own agendas or have mini races of a hundred miles. We could send Jessica up ahead on point so that would take care of any bear problems.

The problem is that she is faster than the bear...We are slower than the bear. The bear will realize that chasing her is no fun and wait for us...

Now maybe we could keep Jessica with us and shake frankenankle at the bear...

That is one renegade looking moose if I ever saw one! We will definitely need Jessica to fend that one off.

Just to let you (mVirtue) know that we have thought of your comfort while in Couer d'Alene all of us will carry a supersoaker and blast you with water so you won't feel weird not skating in the rain.

Maybe he'll mount them on a stick and let us chase them around the track!

I know we're not talking about the same "level", but herein lies my greatest problem. I can connect with some really awesome striding on occasion, I swear my body is on a 45 degree angle, every foot plants beautifully, awesome underpush with a sweet transition to outpush and full extension, 17mph without effort at about 120bpm - then the world falls apart and I'll be picking gravel out of my underlayment again.

In survival training it's called the "buddy system"... you don't have to be faster than the thing chasing you, just faster than your buddy.

Let's do it. Start planning now.

I think it got too complex. If everybody just said "Yeah, cool idea: AAS "T" shirt", you'd probably be wearing it already. Once it became, sorry I don't do blue, it must be hypoallergenic and can I get tassles on mine at the mid-drift line I think it just got snowed under. JB

From the mind of the bear: "hmmm, let me see, very fast, hard too catch, sinewy Jesica - or.....put stick in path, open mouth and wait for chubby pink slow guy to trip and fall down my throat." Decisions, decisions. JB

Not any great training or speed but Kegan and I went out for close to an hour on the skates. Pretty hot and I have lost some of my endurance. When we got back I took Ash out for another 25 min. run. She is slow but I made her skate mostly on her own. We went up to the school where she just started kindergarten. Now I need to get Sheri out with us sometimes. I also am eyeing getting a set of 100mm skates this winter. Now that the weather is cooling off and I am setteling into the new job I should be able to skate more often.

Oh yeah running the roads here in Linton really sucks compared to skating the Monon in Indy. I really envy ya'll that have bike paths nearby.

Where: Evergreen rotary park
What: drills with Madeline
Conditions: real nice 60s, clear, dry

Worked with Madeline on sculling and ampersand gliding. She wanted to do a timed run so I had her do a mile Her time was 5:28/10.9 Max 13.0MPH.

Thur. 08-17 AM: out to McDevelopment for more hills and grades. Did four laps for 22.4mi; 2hr 5min / 10.75 mph. Lap times 30, 31, 32 and 32. Not gaining on the elapsed times but it seems to be getting easier. Was tempted to go for a fifth lap but decided to save it for Sunday and try for a full length A2A.
PM: session skate: spent an hour tweaking the frames on my hybrid Rads then switched to quads for the final hour.
