But first, yesterday’s over-lunch skate…
Not a great distance was traveled initially since my boy took a tumble on his bike which led to an injury close to Sami Salo’s which led to a loose nut (hehe) on his wheel which led to us heading back to the van for a quick-fix-job.
Des was only able to stay for one round around the lake, but after a bribe of ice cream, my boy walked off his injury and went for round 2 with me.
Elapsed time: 39 minutes
Distance: 6.59 km
Average speed: 10 km/h
Max speed: 15.3 km/h
THIS MORNING’S RIVERBOTTOM SKATE…
Elapsed time: 23 minutes
Distance: 4.96 km
Average speed: 12.7 km/h
Max speed: 19.6 km/
Followed by stairs… mmmmm delicious stairs. I kind of missed doing that. I haven’t done them since the April 22… stupid weather. But I was impressed at my stamina this time. I guess all this skating stuff is paying off a bit.
Thanks to Kran, Maude, Nixxi and Bitchcakes for joining!
So here’s the thing derby bitches; you should join us. Get over the fact that you have to get up early. I guarantee you will feel great for the rest of the day and these paths really give you the opportunity to stretch your legs and get your sweat on as opposed to circling around and around at our secret location. You want to make your 25 lap benchmark, right? This is where you’ll build your endurance for that.
For fans who aren’t in derby; you should join us. This is a low-key, do-it-at-your-own-pace workout. Run, walk, rollerblade, bike. It doesn’t matter. Just come out and let’s motivate each other.
So next Thursday, 6 a.m., Baroness picnic shelter. BE THERE!
