Just checked the results for DeSoto. I'm smiling to myself thinking not bad and then I see a 10 year old girl was 15 sec behind me.10!! Good God.Jessica thought the 14 year olds were bad.Gotta love this sport.
Hey,Buzzinghornet. 1:45 is a respectable time especially taking 4 min off your previous time. Congrats. Once your ankle problem clears up you'll probably take another 10 off.
John B- Thanks, Too bad you couldn't be there but it seems you had a fine day as well.
LezSk8- I believe it was your back I was looking at for a good part of the race.
Jessica-1st in the 5k after placing 2nd in the skate is quite an impressive day. We haven't met because I'm terrible at introducing myself to people I don't know especially when I'm doing something thats fairly new to me. I'll do so to you and everyone else next time I'm up.

Drills, drills and even more drills. It's that balance thing. Eddy makes it look so easy.

August 20 St. Paul 23/32 in Pro-M Not thrilled with it, not bummed out either. I'm on the upswing in my skating and training and I feel confident of satisifying results at NSIM and A2A. Time was 1:21 and change, 4 mins off the winning time. Average HR was 168 with a max of 188.
August 22 Hills. 21 miles total with 12 on the hills. Had some fresh blood with us tonite. 2nd time up I beat my previous PB (this year) for the 2 mile climb with a time of 7:46. 3rd trip up, the young turk was hot on my heels the entire way and I know in my heart that I beat my PB, but I didnt see the numbers so it doesnt count. We were hauling. Nothing like a grudge match with a 26 yo. Lovin' it.
August 23 AM 30 min. spin, 10 min. jog, calisthenics and stretching

8/22 Light hill intervals 5 reps 2 min on/2 off: avg distance 1/2 mile "on" per rep, HR after work: 168 or so, after recovery: 140 or so.



Next up: NYC 100K. Maybe I won't have to fight a named storm this time I am trying 100K. It's my first long distance race since the DNF last year. (I don't consider marathons long distance.) I wish I could re-read the advice I got after that one though. I certainly feel ready this time, but that ghost is still there.

I think I might remember that thread. Stepping back up to a place of defeat is a victory in and of itself, but that's not enough. Just remember, that ghost wants to be free as much as you want to be free of it. Your job is to escort that ghost to the finish line. Use the memory, embrace the ghost, just remember it's only as much burden as you let it be. Every lap it will get thinner and thinner and once you cross the line it will just be a memory.

Wow, that was nearly poetic...

21 miles @ Flatwoods, 1:15:33, 3:36 pace - fastest yet!!! I think I may get up even earlier next week and do a marathon. Maybe.

BTW - if any of you have tried to reach me at my VVD address, please re-send your mail to my hotmail account. We're having some major issues with our work mail server so I'm not getting all of my messages.

I discovered that even though I thought that I had my weight back on my heels that I didn't quite manage it. Any loading of the toes will send me off to the left and right if I'm gliding on an outside edge.

August 22
66 minutes of low intensity cardio on the treadmill. 23 minutes of high intensity carbo loading at the dinner table. 57 minutes of molding boots and setting up skates. 28 minutes of watching the trainer lady on Bravo get a haircut from Jonathon Antin and break up with her girlfriend.

August 23
7 miles on new skates. Heel and ankles felt really good. The only discomfort was from the outside edges of my feet from the boots being too tight there. Going to try moving the frames to the inside tomorrow to see how that feels. This is going to be great!

Now that's scary.....

Couldn't skate yesterday due to rain. Can't wait to get out to skate today right after work. But black clouds and thunder rolled in only after 4 miles of skating. Hopefully my luck is better tomorrow.

It was supposed to rain here for the past 3 days but we haven't gotten a drop. We keep getting missed.

Heat molded my boots last night for the first time. I pushed out a couple of spots I've been having trouble with on my left skate, then tightened around the ankles for more support. I tried them out on the street for a bit and didn't notice much of a difference, but the real test will be the two days of intense skating this weekend.

August 24

1 hour bike ride - not sure of the distance cuz I don't have a computer yet. Did the usual people/dog dodging on the little local trail, then hit the road. It really irritates me that so many people insist on letting their dogs roam free on the trail when there's a designated dog run in the same park. If you want to get some exercise with your dog, great, but please keep him on a leash. Then they look at me like I'm doing something wrong because I have to slam on my brakes to avoid flattening their pooch. I think I prefer riding on the road with the crazy morning commuters than the stop and go on the trail.

Tonight - core training, 90 minutes

I know I perfer road to trail for both cycling and skating. It's not only the stop and go, it's that intersections between trail and road always seem to be blind. I feel a lot less likely to get nailed by a car on the road, than while using the trail.

Since roads are designed for higher speeds, they often have better runouts, and smoother curves than trails. The car traffic also acts as a sweeper, to keep the debris down.

The only extra skill required is the confidence to assertively, and predicably take your turn.

What you'll actually put your skates on?

Mrs Speedy will be out and you have to cook for yourself and the girls?

CMs coed are stopping by and you failed to inform Mrs Speedy?

Come on and save us before our minds end up in the gutter...

...Too late.

Yes, there will be skating.

Do that all the time. (tonite I have to feed the coeds )

Do that all the time, too. Does intentionally not telling count as a failure?

If it all works out, there'll be a nice video

As long as I stay out of the gutter it will all be good.

Coincidence maybe but two of my grad students are out today and won't be in till Monday. Hmmm, funny thing is they are the ones that found speedy to be cute.

I'll be looking for more grinning speedy pics!

Sometimes a grimace can look like a grin, right?
August 24 10 miles+/- 2 miles or so to warm up, then 4 @ 2 mile intervals drafting my truck. Average HR including rides back to starting point 158, max 188, typical HR during effort 181-185, average speed guessing around 25-26. This route had some grades to it. There was a learning curve for this effort, both on my part and my crew. These pics were from the last run when it all came together.
When I can comfortably skate at 25 I should be able to hang. Wanna know how tired I am of this: How'd you do? Oh, I got dropped.
Real f***in' tired.
We have some video, but that will be another day. We're not sure if
there will be much continuity after the profanity and crying is edited
out...gless and speedy sr. wanted to stop for ice cream on the way out.

JT warming up with the camerman/copilot



This is as close to a smile as I got all night



According to gless' GPS, this was 31 mph, still strokin'



End of the last one, man, I was dying right here, dying I tells ya

Speedy...way to go dude!! You almost make me feel guilty about sloughing it this week (almost).

Not much to report for me since Sunday's long roll, just two session skates Wed & tonight (thur). Did work on a particular drill mvirtue linked me to:

http://andrewlove.org/blog/?p=303

Need to note here that I was on quadskates at the time but was able to get down all the way on both legs; coasting distances varied from ~30m to 75m +. let me tell you that does work your quads. What's a name for it? Fishing pelican? Stealth duck? Names reflect my position...wings out gliding and a constant posibility of dipping my beak into the surface. LOL

Speedy,
So that's what my dad meant when he would tell me to, "Go play in traffic."

Thanks for the pictures, that is inspirational. Ohio looks nice, too.
