First-ever "Skate Strong" workshop report...

This weekend we had absolutely perfect weather for the first "Skate Strong" workshop here in the Triangle.  Partly sunny and 82 degrees made for a very comfortable day, if not a bit warm at times.  Smiles abounded at the end of the day, along with some mild sunburn...  :)

Global Warming: If you can't Beat it, Skate it!

Alright, it's shaping up to be a fantastic weekend in the South, weatherwise. Temps up to 85 Deg F in the Atl., and Raleigh might see 80 on Saturday. Although there may be rain for New England and the mid-Atlantic states, Lansing should be a balmy 60 :-).

Recumbent Exercise Bike Better for Me than Bike Trainer

I recently purchased a recumbent exercise bike to ride after my daughter goes to bed, as it is hard to get out as much as i would like with a 2.5 year old.  Its nothing fancy, a Proform XP110 from Sears.  I had a magnetic trainer for my road bike, but it's noisy and it just feels unnatural to be in that position on a normal road bike and not move for 30 minutes to an hour.

Boxing Gym Training to Get in Shape

My wife Bobbi bought me a membership at a boxing gym and some private lessons to try and get me into shape. I have been complaining a lot lately so I guess she wanted to shut me up and stop the complaining. The gym I go to has 3 different coaches. A conditioning coach and a couple of technique coaches. I really like the sessions with the conditioning coach because its all just calisthenics and its nice to have someone there to push you when you really thought that you couldn't possibly do another set. I am no where near where i want to be but this is a nice start and its a lot of fun too.

Greensboro: A Great Eddy Matzger RoadShow Inline Speed Skating Workshop Apr 6-8 2007

Hi to all. Some have asked about the workshop in Greensboro and I wanted to share some brief details.

We don't publish locations in advance publicly for several reasons, mostly so the workshop can maintain a bit of privacy. We'll almost certainly be at our previous location but I'll be checking that site and some others as traffic patterns and building zones have shifted somewhat.

It's Spring! Go Skate!

Here's a question for anybody experiencing somewhat warmer Spring weather (since it's all relative and the Northerners probably consider 50 deg F to be warm, while some of us wimpy Southerners won't skate below 65 Deg F) - what are you all doing, skate- and training-wise? Are you doing short laps around your local park or have you already embarked on full-fledged roadskates? Did you spend all winter chasing indoor skaters? Please let me know what you're doing, I'd love to know.

Special Offer for the Free Raleigh Inline Skating Speed Workshop for Charity!

Signups for the inline skating (rollerblading, speedskating) workshop have been pretty light, so I have a special deal for anyone that might be "on the fence"...

Email me by Tuesday, March 20, to reserve your place in the workshop.  You do not need to make a donation before the inline skating workshop.  Attend the workshop on March 24th in Raleigh, NC.  If, after the workshop, you do not feel like it was worth your time, do not feel obligated to donate anything.  If, however, you do feel like the workshop was worthwhile, then please make a donation my MS Society Tour to Tanglewood fundraising effort.

Skate Bunnies Converge on Greensboro NC for Easter 2007

Hi to roadskaters, inline skaters, rollerbladers, all o'y'all, everywhere.

We here in North Carolina need your help with something that might be helpful to you as well.

We are scheduled to have Eddy Matzger here on Easter weekend, April 6-8. Most of you know how great a teacher Eddy is and that it is a great way to kick start (to the side, not back) your inline skating season in the beautiful south's warm springtime glow.
