Re: Got a boat

Yeah it makes you very cautious or stupid. I have always been amazed have cavalier people can be on the water. Even more surprising when in cold water. I've come out of my boat on several occasions and not always easy to get back in. The standard comment is just because someone can Eskimo roll their...

Re: Got a boat

Well just self propelled ones. I used to do a decent amount of open water ocean kayaking. I definitely can relate to the feeling of being in uncomfortable water. The swells never look that big until your are past the shore break and then you realize that you better really pay attention. Well you mad...

Re: ROLLER SKI AND RUNNING

Yep -- don't disagree with any of your comments. I've always tried to do total body type workouts and used to be a kayak racer also. The roller skiing does allow me to do hard interval type workouts without ripping up my legs doing the same running speed workouts like track intervals or hard hill ru...

Re: ROLLER SKI AND RUNNING

Yeah Dave -- I could see how that workout would get you attention. Are your ski erg and rower both from C2?

ROLLER SKI AND RUNNING

I have mentioned on this forum before how much I think/know that roller skiing has been an outstanding addition to my running/racing. Last night was another proof to me that training works great together. As I get older, and my friends who have been excellent runners and racers most of their lives c...

Re: Dry land training

I did the tire drag around on a few workouts now and it works just fine. I also agree that the added benefit is on those long steep hills that I would have to walk down, are now controllable with the tire doing the extra drag along with the speed reducers. So for what it is worth -- an excellent wor...

Re: Dry land training

The one I use for running/hiking training is a 16 inch tire. I put an eye bolt through the middle part of the tread and then attach a lanyard that I attach to a carabineer around a waste belt. Usually I try to find ways to work out that give a nice workout in a short period of time. That definitely ...

Re: Dry land training

Here is another question for you Folks -- it is a running training technique to do both for sprinting and some easier running while pulling a tire behind you. Anyone ever try this with roller skis? The V2 skis that I have work well on a crushed gravel path and I already use the "speed reducers&...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Yep -- been getting a couple sessions in a week. But where I live the snow is the anomaly unfortunately. Having said that, I really do enjoy the roller skiing and the workout. Anything I can do that fits into the "out the back door" category is OK by me.

Re: New racing technique

Seems logical to me. Most of us are probably runners anyhow so why not run on the skis?
