Right, any aerobic exercise will keep the heart and lungs primed, be it ever so humble. and a different sort of workout rest's the muscles (overall) that are worked while attached to inlines.
VS doing nothing for three or four months and having to start from square A with cardiovascular.

The problem is modern lifestyle, not running (or any other sporting activity).

I'm non runner because "I thought running caused" aches and pains due to high impact stereotype.

My wife and I walk and talk (she does the talking) from 15-20k a week. We've been doing so for about 9-10 yrs. We also use a series of Swiss exercise and weighted balls for balance, relaxation and conditioning. When we first started I walking together I wore my old cheap running shoes. And... I did have some issues with my feet, knees and lower back. I thought by complaining(high impact) to her about my feet I could get out of having to go. Fortunately... i married a smart girl, she shut me up with a nice pair of shoes, light and comfy. My foot and knee issues are minimal now.

Coincidentally, I stopped skating around 08' and came back 14'. Without all the walking / whole body approach. I'm convinced walking or running is good for your skating with the right approach.

I skate and run. It works for me. Listen to your body and it can work well.
