I blew it some days and let the weather forecast stop me. But I got in 4 sessions of 50, 66, 33 and 67 miles. More info later (maybe!), but for now, let's just say my wheels are flatter and maybe my feet too. I've put the miles into my newest skates and have worked around some challenges there. I'm not dropping pounds like I want too, because I seem attracted to carbs right now (as always)! There are some more stories to tell about people we met and random thoughts.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/67-more-miles-makes-211-4-last-11-days-silver-comet-trail-can-we-smooth-out-concrete-bit" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/67-more-miles-makes-211-4-last-11-days-silver-comet-trail-can-we-smooth-out-concrete-bit#comments Roadskater.net 2012 2000s United States of America (USA) 2010s Coot's Lake Station GA Dallas GA Earth Georgia (GA) Hiram GA inline skating Mableton GA outdoot rail trails North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1443 Sun, 15 Jul 2012 20:41:55 +0000 roadskater 1443 at http://roadskater.net 33 Soaked Sometimes Slippery Silvery Comet Miles and Briefly Looking Back on 66 Miles and a Trick for Skate Boots Too Big http://roadskater.net/33-soaked-sometimes-slippery-silvery-comet-miles-and-briefly-looking-back-66-miles-and-trick-skate-boots-too-big <p><em>[Last Friday, eebee and I skated 66 miles (some might say more but that's close enough) on the Silver Comet Trail, from Mile 0 at Mableton near Nickajack Elementary, to Coot's Lake Station (where the old station was, where now there is a convenience store). Since we had done 50 two days earlier, there was not very much new to recount, or I had few braincells for recounting. We saw some wild turkeys, the tunnel was not muddy or wet, Dallas is getting our love for that much better water fountain at the back of the restroom building (I think there's a similar fountain at the back of the building in Hiram too, but I have not been up to the shelter in Hiram this year. If you make it to Brushy Mountain Tunnel, you might consider pushing on 3 or so more miles down to the store at Coot's Lake. Yes, you have to come back up, but it's likely you'll be refreshed.

How About Your Recent Workouts? http://roadskater.net/inline-skating-44-miles-silver-comet-trail-slowly-how-about-your-recent-workouts No matter how far or not, how fast or not, I love to hear people's stories of skating. Ten words or a hundred paragraphs, tell us what you've been skating, cycling, lifting, or anything. Or just tell me what's up lately. So here's my freewriting exercise. I'll try to type it out once and not do editing other than spelling and such... Well, eebee and I went out for a long skate today, thinking we would do about 30 or 32 miles. She's been training to skate and I've been training to type, read, watch p2p tv of sporting events, so you can imagine who had the lower heart rate, ha! <h3 class="location-locations-header">Locations</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Silver Comet Trail Near Mile 0 Nickajack Elementary School </span> <span class="locality">Smyrna</span>, <span class="region">Georgia</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="33.841429">33° 50' 29.1444" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-84.516249">84° 30' 58.4964" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=33.841429+-84.516249+%28%2C+Smyrna%2C+GA%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;csz=Smyrna%2C+GA&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!

I was going to check out the road section on the Covenant Christian Century on Sat., but a big dog rudely jumped in front of me before I got there. I had no choice but to hit him, which propelled me over the handlebars &amp; onto the pavement. So I spent the rest of the day at Floyd General being treated for a broken collarbone &amp; rib. So no skating, cycling or dancing for me. So, I&#39;m entertaining offers for my registration.
