Great!

Time to start posting in the "Training log thread" so we can watch your progress. It will be an inspiration for many.

Eventually you will become one of the great elites and leave the forum when it becomes beneath you, like some others.

Meanwhile keep working on stopping as well. Grass stops are very valuable to get good at too.

I've seen that thread, but I'm not really "training". I'm just out trying to have some fun skating with friends. The only reason I even seem to talk about "getting in better shape" is b/c I need to be able to keep up with said friends and not make them slow down for me. (well, that and wanting to be too good to post here anymore )

Grass stops are easy, right? Skate into grass and fall forward....stopped!

Kept up decently with a small group Friday night, in our monthly 8 mile "Full Moon Skate", but I still get tired easier than them. I learned the importance of drafting! Got behind one of our group on a bike for much of the 2nd half, and was able to keep the pace without getting tired.

I'm starting to consider getting a set of larger wheels for these park skates, keeping the 84mm for neighborhood/urban skates. (I have another thread started about this...any input would be appreciated).
