EZeefits, a couple of cokes, some food and skate for several hours at the rink! Or til you tire out. Our group in Spring usually skates 2 1/2 hours minimum on Sundays. I get a bit more skate time in than that. About 3 1/2 to 4 hours. inlines or quads?

Quads. I have been wearing them at work (shhhhh, under my desk mostly) and a little skating in the house (wood floors). I haven't skated in probably 15 years. Trying to avoid severe pain. LOL

We are going to the rink Saturday and Sunday for 2 hours each. Really hoping I can still walk come Monday. LOLOL

Hope you got snug skates. You hav eRavens right? Make sure you heel is locked in. Snug at the toes. A bit looser at the flex point. That is why you have hooks at the top and not holes. Itís a bit conterintuitive but loop around the hooks top first then all the way around. That locks the string in place while alowing the flex point to flex.

Take your time tying as you get used to how to tie. With your foot in the right place you should avoid blisters.

I always found I got less blisters going backward in brownies. But Iíve never got blisters is my Ravens.

After breaking in numerous pairs of ice hockey skates and mountaineering boots the method I feel works best for me is this:
I have a pair of ultra thin wicking socks that I will dampen (this only works well with leather lined items, padded or synthetic lined items don't respond as well. Lace up the footwear as snug as you can stand (make sure to seat your heels well) without causing pain and wear/skate the items until they are dry.
The next time you put them on the worst is over.
