Got up early and hit the indoor spot at 8am. Got a brutal 2 hours.
Went home, ate and took a damn nap and went back again at 5pm Got an even more brutal 2h20m for a total of 4:20m for the day.

Also mowed the yard. No wonder I'm so tired.

HaHa. Exactly how my day went, except the AM outing was on a bicycle due to wet weather. Ate, took a nap. Then look at my skate time this PM just above your post. 2 hrs, 20 minutes!

That's a sick coincidence.

(My yard took car of itself today).

Hah! It sure does. I didn't even see that, I was looking at your speed variation thing.

Got an hour and a half today.

Nice and quiet park, me and a homie ripped it up. Caught a short 14second clip of him cleaning a top soul 9' feet off the deck. He's got so much style it's ridiculous.

Sept. 15 PM

Forgot the GPS home

Anyway, put in a little over an hour so likely 10 miles give or take. 3 miles were really fast (for me anyway on slalom skates) drafting a fake roadie on his skinny tire hybrid bike. Speeds likely around 17-18. LOTS of Zombies on the path at the time so it was a fun festival of dodging many meat pylons who are too ignorant or rude to use the fitness trail properly.

Skated to and from the park from my house as well. Nice after-work skate fo sho. I remembered my lights this time so I could stay at the park beyond sunset. Days are getting shorter now.

Same route map as THIS recent post.

YAY! Remembered the GPS today!

Skated a little over 9 miles, but put out my best speed effort so far on the new skates. Remember, I am using SLALOM skates as speed skates - not rockered. Had a cyclist struggling to catch me for three miles today. He never got passed me. Here is the data summary:



This is what I am training on:



I feel pretty good about it. First time I hit 18+ mph on these skates that got recorded on the GPS.

Cheers!

Put in roughly 25 miles today. Forgot to turn the GPS on a few times so OFFICIALLY...23.5 miles. Trust me. It's at least 25 miles.

This is funny. Five miles of Freestyle Slalom practice in a big warehouse on the river. The "walls" are open air but the roof is metal. GPS did OK but obviously I did not skate IN the river. I was just wondering how useful the data would be under that roof. Not too bad really. Enjoy the red spaghetti!



Later this afternoon I went out to the fitness path loops at City Park and knocked off more than 15 miles. I always enjoy when some dude on a bicycle leaves his girlfriend/wife on her own so he can chase me down, then fails right in front of her. Few things in life make me happier!

Here is the STRAVA link if anyone really cares: https://www.strava.com/activities/393819477 It says my Max Speed was 30.6 mph. NO. Something is wrong with how Strava handles that data. High speed was 18 mph.

That sucks. My shoe size is "normal" at US11 and it took me five years to get my feet in those skates in the USofA. And I gotta say, the first month was AGONY. 90% dialed in now. I hate setting up new skates almost as much as a new computer.

Thanks. Yes, now they are more than just nice to LOOK at. Bruised ankles all healed up. Skates are finally starting to feel like a part of me at last.

You know your sport is on the fringe when you have to list it under "Hockey". I know the feeling. Strava does not have a "Longboard" category, or even a skateboard category. So I list those activities under "Ride". And because of that, I list my inline skating under Ride as well, otherwise the totals add up separately. If i do 50 miles on the inlines, and 50 miles on my board, that is 100 miles of "skating" in my book.

Bummer you didn't get in your mandatory hour of skating.

Haha! I know! The hockey setting was the closest to what I'd been used to with Runkeeper before their program got all glitchy. We used to play hockey. After 20 minutes, everyone was ready for beer. lol

Made up for my short lunch session with an afterwork slide session on my backyard setup last nigt. A short 15second clip of that: https://youtu.be/BixHxdzCTDw

Got my hour in at lunch today, with rousing success. I've been working on grinds on a curved pocket coping, and finally laced it.

That is a 8!tch!n setup in your yard! Great way to stay prime when you can't get to the park. I have a really long, straight driveway the entire length of the house, plus some. Gonna turn that into a slalom spot soon as I learn a few tricks to practice.

I like your vids man. Short, sweet, to the point. Keep it up. I am motivated to try to match you day to day at this point.

Barely had enough daylight to get my 10 miles in. I prefer the distance to the 1-hour goal personally, especially when time is short I get motivated to kick it in the arse. I would go by time if I were park skating too.

Me Today: 10.9mi, 55:11 time. Average speed 11.9 including skating to and from the fitness trail loops from my house using various streets and cutting through a community college campus - about 1 mile each way.

Thanks Joey! Having raised two kids by myself for the past 13 years, I've had to come up with some kid friendly hobbies. (or other hobbies that I could do at home) I can go in the backyard, video a few tricks, go inside and edit the video at my studio, and put my own music in it. Guitars, Drums, Keys, EDM tools computer editor, etc.... It's kept me sane all these years, and at home.

If I don't get rained out at lunch today, I'm gonna video this new routine I've been working on all week. If I do, I'm gonna go visit a buddy of mine who just built a new indoor park (not even open yet).

Got my Friday skating bases covered!

(Good time on that 10.9 mile run btw!)

Got my hour (1h20m) in. Beat the rain.

Did some sliding, took a few spills. Caught them on camera! lol
A good slide: https://vimeo.com/139728966
A good crash: https://vimeo.com/139730600
An even better crash!: https://vimeo.com/139730686

Having fell down that thing several hundred times learning that grind, I can say that I've gotten damn good at falling!

That's why you pad up.

I don't do anything that makes me expect to fall on skates. At least not fall and slide. I do wear a helmet and wrist guards over full fingered cycling gloves. I HATE tearing up my fingers even with the wrist guards on.

As I get more involved in practicing some slalom moves there is no doubt I will be falling - just not falling off a roof.

I had the day off today (Friday) with zero chance of rain. I hit some bike paths, parks, and city streets for a nice 30+ mile skate between 9am and Noon when everybody is at work or school. Streets were nearly deserted which allowed me to choose all of the smooth ones!

This was not a speed day. Nursing a sore ankle so I took it easy. Negotiating hundreds of intersections never really helps my average speed either.

Here are the details:

I need to figure out how to get another 7.5 miles done this afternoon (Saturday) or tomorrow to reach 100 miles for this week. Today was 16 miles on my Longboard. Skating is skating to me.



GOT IT! First time ever 100+ mile skating week while working a full time job.


https://www.strava.com/athletes/brooks_joey

75 miles on the new Powerslide EVO inline skates and 25+ on my longboard.

My bald head would have been even worse. I landed on it first:


Other than a nice shoulder road rash I'm totally fine tho. What's even funny is that I went in head first in the 8 foot
bowl section. Landed on my head on a structure called the turtle and did a back handstand extention and actually
freaking landed on the transition going down backward and skated away in reverse! (fakie). Everyone watching was
dumbfounded. One guy looked actually mad. "HOW THE FCK DO YOU LAND ON YOUR HEAD AND LAND IT!?!"

Woke up to heavy rain today, and went to my indoor spot. Got almost 3 full hours of hard ramp grind action skating in.

Advil? You gotta be sore. And showering won't be much fun for a bit either.

Glad you feel good enough to stay at it. That helmet just paid for itself too.

Where is the video camera when stuff like that happens?

Haha, it's not too bad yet. The bandage got stuck to it - that was a lot of fun peeling it off. lol

Got an 1h15m in today at my outdoor spot. No upside down (unintentional) fiasco's today. Just the regular type.

Hey, you guys need to hold down the fort for me a while. Finally got the new skates molded and broken in. I am taking a week or two off the skates to let my ankles recover from the pressure points.

I will still be hitting the streets on my longboard. I don't intend to post that data here.

Will be skating like a mofo on inlines again very soon!

See Y'all then!
