Dang, I did some really cool stuff I didn't get to report on while the forum was down. Well, not really. Just a triathlon. Since I don't have any friends other than my online/skating ones, you'll have to listen to the report.

Sprint tri, August 5 - 1/4 mile swim, 10 mile bike, 5k run 9th age group/31
1:10:06 total, swim 8:36 T1 2:13 bike 33:06 T2 1:30 run 24:45
I suck at swimming - this is always my downfall in triathlon. I was 25/31 for the swim. Yeah. I placed top 10 in both the bike and run, but my transition times were also sub-par. Every second counts and I probably could have saved a minute here. I wasn't too disappointed though because I'm not training for triathlon right now, and I did better than last year. The swim really wasn't that bad - the water was a nice temperature and we were going with the current. The bike was a little slower than I anticipated, but it was still fun. I felt great on my new bike. The run was really hot, no shade, and started out in loose sand. If you've never run in loose sand, it really sucks. I'd compare it to running through molasses. Anyway, I had a great time, and I can't wait for the next one. I expect to kick a$$ on the bike next time.

So now, back to the present...
August 10
21 miles @ Flatwoods, 1:18:14, 3:44 pace

07-24 thru 30
Pretty much an easy recovery week. Tue afternoon Evergreen park with g'daughter and Thur. evening session skate w/her also

Fri and Sat: checking out Spokane Centennial Trail for marathon.

Sun, 07- 30: AM: Skated Spokane InLine marathon…placed second in division with time of 1hr 53min 39 sec. Last year’s time was 2:00:16. This year was a tougher push than last’s with some pretty stiff winds. All in all a great week-end.

Moving this to the "Official thread"

It seems that we cannot edit thread titles...

-------------------------

Let's see...for the last couple of weeks it has been:

M,W,F - AM - 5 miles with intervals
W - PM - 5 miles at pace
T,R - AM - 12 miles slow through Magnolia
R - PM - 26.2 miles

Last Thursday I had a really good day!

26.2 miles in 1:30:22 for a average of 17.4. Max speed 28.3. Avg HR 169. Max HR 191. Best mile 2:13/26.8. Worst mile 5:57/10.1.

I had two miles of > 4 minutes. 7 sub 3 minute miles.

I don't know if I'll be able to duplicate it today. I did duplicate the sub 3 minute miles on Monday so I know they were not a fluke.

--------------------------

This Wednesday (8/9) skated 7 miles with NWGlenn at Evergreen. Tonight (8/10) did 26.2 at Evergreen, averaged 13.4 with a average HR of 152 -- it is kinda cool to be going the same speed as a number of weeks ago but at a much lower HR. Best mile 2:44. Lots of people stopped by, there was mulch on the path and the fastest corner was wet (still).

Tomorrow is the Eddie clinic social skate and then two 10 hour days of Eddie.

I sure have to get used to this new forum. Seems good to be back and to hear from you guys again. Missed you Kathie I have been quad skating a lot nowadays. Took the L10's out of drydock and had fun with them this evening. Its been awhile! Sure do lose speed when not using them. We have had a lot of rain in NM lately, thought Seattle had moved here! Trails are a bit tricky due to run off. Jessica, I think it is so cool you are doing the tri's. When I did them they were the greatest and it sure is a test of discipline and character! Whats with this Junior Member under our names?

I think it will change as each of us racks up more and more posts. Think of it like experience points for the world of forums.

As for the rain, if it was real rain then it is definitly not like up here. We mostly get 100% humidity that is hanging in the air.

I use a Garmin 301 which is a combination GPS and heart rate monitor. Other people use known distances and a stop watch.

5 miles on Blackstone River Bikeway.

I've decided that using the Garmin doesn't seem to be helping me much. But at least I'm back to skating once in a while.

New Mexico is in a drought, the worst in years. So the clouds opened up and we have had flooding where it never has been. Peoples homes washed out and some loss of life. It also has had a devasting effect on the paths as there is so much runoff that rocks and mud litter the path. Even the cyclists have slowed down for this one. We have had a few dry days as of late but the damage is done and paths are low priority for the maint folks.

I use the Garmin 201 which does not have the HR monitor. I saved a few bucks and figured if my heart is still beating I'd have accomplished my goal. Then again I have no object other than to maintain fitness which in my case is just moving. If racing I'd have to have the HR monitor!

8/3 (Thu), did some pretty intense but short skating with a buddy...... at Dyer.

8/5 (Sat), Dyer again, late afternoon. Did some hills......

8/6 (Sun), Dyer again, late afternoon. Did some drills and invertals (4 to 6 min long).

8/8 (Tue), Dyer, distance skating with buddies.......

8/9 (Wed), Dyer, drills and hills.....

8/10 (Thu), Dyer, skated with my 2 training buddies. We skated at a relatively high average pace around the small loops. We rested at the downwind leg, and at race pace at the crosswind leg, and as hard as we can into the wind (sort of like an interval). The wind was at least 20mph. The last attempt was brutal, because one of them decided to break the 20mph mark. I did manage around 17 when it's my 2nd time to pull........

I started skating intervals one day a week. The rest of the time I had to cut back on the usual hour and a half because I found a skating partner. Well, she rides a bike and I am on skates. I now skate faster so I only go one hour and then cool down for fifteen minutes. Not really sure what my heart rate is but all I know is it has got to be up there. I feel fine though and now I don't like to wear a heart rate monitor but just go out and go. The days I don't go out with my skating partner I go skating in the morning and just skate easy with lots of drills. Amazingly enough I think I have got the double push down and use it all the time while chasing my friend on the bike. I don't know but I think alot has to do with the skate boot and frame because after drilling for a few days it just seems like how to skate. I'm not sure if I even remember how to skate the classic style.

I'm doing some 1 hour sessions 3-4 times a week in preparation for the Fort De Soto 10k in St. Pete 8/20. Resistance work through hill climbs and intervals. Technical drills during recovery periods. Skated our Thursday night Baldwin Park session last night (11 miles). More later.

I don't know about Boston but it has been dang near too hot here in Greenetucky. I did skate on the Monon in Indy on July 31st even though the temp was in the 90's with a heat index of 105. I made right at fourteen and a half miles in an hour and thirty six min. Not great speed but there are a lot of road xings and it was HOT HOT HOT. Last Sat. I skated for about a half and hour but it was just too hot and I was towing Ash most of the way. Perhaps I can do better this evening since it is only supposed to get to 82 today.

8/12
Fourteen miles on the hilly loop averaging 14 mph. Max heart rate was 182 with an average heart rate of 163. Found out that I need to get lower and I still need to stop the toe flick. 90 situps when I got home. Great workout and I feel wonderful. Relaxed and peaceful. The best part of the day.
