Yes, very likely. Try slower wheels.

Re: How's the season going?

Very little roller skiing for me this season, deplorably; a little with my very young nieces who are getting into the sport. Yesterday, however, I tested my latest roller skis. More on them and that on my website.

Re: The danger of roller skiing

Indeed, there are so many of these stories. I've always wondered why top athletes risk it, especially with no protection gear other than helmet and going on new or unfamiliar roads, and this was a high speed crash so unnecessary risks were definitely taken. I believe roller skiing on roads or track...

Re: The danger of roller skiing

I can attest to these dangers. While descending a hill on my roller skis back in the fall of 1994 the front wheel picked up a rock that wedged between the wheel and the frame. This immediately stopped the wheel and the skis. I took several steps trying to stop my momentum but on the third step I tw...

The danger of roller skiing

A new reminder of how dangerous roller skiing is came this week when Martin Johnsrud Sundby crashed during training, injuring his thigh. He will not be able to train for a couple of weeks. Let us hope Sundby's injury is not as serious as the one Björn Dählie got when roller skiing, an injury that en...

Re: Rollerski wheels gone square

Hello! Your problem seems very odd. Are the roller skis too fast for you with #3 if the wheels roll freely? Have you tried #4?

Re: Got a boat

Just like Pat I used self propelled vessels, mostly a canoe in which I brought with me a canoe cart and a foldable bike so I could travel long distances on land between different waterways. If I was out with a friend we had two bikes in the canoe. That was great fun, and soundlessly gliding on the w...

Thanks. I see it uses the same microwave frequency as Bluetooth (2.4 GHz). I suspect that might be the cause of, or contributing to, your heart problems: http://www.magdahavas.com/pick-of-the-w ... the-heart/

Re: ROLLER SKI AND RUNNING

Pat: while roller-skiing and running are related, they are not equal as far as their fitness impact. Running is an inherently hard sport - even a slow run is a noticeable effort for most athletes. OTOH, on roller-skis it is easy to crank mile-after-junk-mile at HR of 130-140 (barely above fast walk...

Re: ROLLER SKI AND RUNNING

Wonderful to hear, Pat. Roller skiing really is amazingly effective training for strength, endurance, coordination, balance and technique. It is quite fun too. You are yet another person to have discovered that.
