Inline Skate Stops Slides and Other Rollerblading Skills and Tricks Like Braking, Parallel Stop, Powerslide, Slalom and J Slide

OK it's raining and my muscles are fine with another day off so I was checking out some ways of stopping on skates. Lots of these are not so much for speed skaters with grippy wheels and grippy asphalt, but for freestylers or hockeyites on smoother surfaces. Having said that, there are certainly those who can do these moves in speed skates. 

 

Nice parallel slide stop video...

Workout Challenge 'cause I am tired of being fat!! Inline Skate, Run, Swim, Ride Your Bike (Bicycle), Walk, Get Moving

Kind of been out of the loop for a while, but am determined to get back into it.  I have been procrastinating getting started me training for a triathlon that my wonderful wife signed me up for in June.  I have known about this since my birthday in November, but have come up with every excuse in the book to not train.  Something to watch on tv, too cold, too hot, blah blah blah...we have all heard it.  Well  the end comes today for me.  No more excuses!  This is where the challenge comes in.  Post here what you did for the day as far as exercise.

Elevation-Speed Profiles and Speed-Heart Rate Profiles for Tour to Tanglewood 2009 Bike Ride Inline Skate

Here is more data from the road between Volvo Trucks N.A., Greensboro, NC and Tanglewood Park, Clemmons, NC in the 2009 Tour to Tanglewood for Multiple Sclerosis. When I make elevation profiles, I like to force x and y to 0 because it helps me see how hilly the event is more accurately. You can make almost anything look hilly by setting the y-axis max/min to the elevation max/min. To make it better, I should probably plot all events on a 110-mile scale or some such (considering Carolina Century at 102 is usually the most I'd try in a day), but I don't yet really like how that looks.
