Periodization and the Preseason - or: I Thought I Could Do Those Inline Skating Drills

So here we are in the Preseason, per Rob Bell's Periodization article I referred to for the Offseason. This should be a six week block of low-intensity technique work (drills), and cross-training (if you like that sort of thing). 

Just as I feared, the Offseason threw me out of my routine and into a funk-and-a-half. So it's taking me some time to get into the Preseason groove. Although there is something alluring about having nothing to do for half an hour except focus on rolling on one skate around half the football field (paved track).

Watch the FIRS Inline Hockey World Championships Online Free TV

If you want to see some mad skills by human shelties focused on chasing the moving object, check out the world championships of inline hockey live online. As we've discussed variously, USA cable television seems not to want to show many sports, no matter what they say. They'd rather show whatever gets rankings of course, and is cheap to produce. Some sports jealously guard the rights to their programming, making sure no one in the USA at least can see it. Others realize they need to let people see it to enjoy it (or not) and to build some demand (or not) for watching their sport.

So here's a link:

City Accidentally Floods Softball Field, Calls It an Ice Rink, Then Invites the Public to Skate and Sled Free

There's nothing so brilliant for me to say, except kudos to having a nice attitude and trying to make something good and fun out of a perhaps major mistake. It seems like 5 to 6 inches of ice would make a good start at a rink, and I vote for the Fire Department to come help smooth it out some. I have not been to the local outdoor ice rink but did drive by a few days ago on the way to something else. It seemed to be well attended by teens and such, who looked to be having fun.

Free High School Science & Mathematics Texts to Download; Calculus Made Easy; Ubuntu Debian Linux for Old PCs; Free Courseware

Just a quick note here on a project that deserves some skateylove for several reasons. I was poking around looking for a lightweight version of Ubuntu that might also have a live cd so I could try before installing. I looked around at various other flavors of Debian and Linux, I came across the Free High School Science Texts website at http://www.fhsst.org/

Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride Inline Skate July 24 2010 Cycle Therapy Lewisville NC

2010.07.24 8:00 am
US/Eastern
There's a FREE training ride in Lewisville this weekend. It's free even if you don't sign up for the Tour to Tanglewood for MS. These training rides are usually as good or better than rides you have to pay to attend. Rollout is 8 a.m. and registration starts at 7 a.m. or so. They roll promptly and rarely have been known to even roll a couple of minutes early maybe, so it's good to be ready. I don't know the routes or distances, sorry. We'll likely do a route in the mid-30-mile range if there is one and if there is also a longer distance. Anyway that's what I know. * Ride Starts: 8am
