Unfortunately the weather was a little wet, creating a fog that made it impossible to see more than 8 feet in front of you.

We spent the afternoon venturing over to the Olympic speed skating oval in Richmond. The four of us ripped around the oval trying to use our Nordic skiing skating skills to propel us along the ice. Let me tell you, the two sports may look very similar in their movements, but the techniques behind them are very different. /pp class=”MsoNormal”br //pp class=”MsoNormal”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sn-WXNyUm2I/AAAAAAAAAHk/J8_FIcaRxE4/s1600-h/sadie+and+sam.jpg”img src=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sn-WXNyUm2I/AAAAAAAAAHk/J8_FIcaRxE4/s320/sadie+and+sam.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368174606430804834″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px; ” //a/pp class=”MsoNormal”!–StartFragment– /pp class=”MsoNormal” style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold;”Sam catching a ride/span/pp class=”MsoNormal”We tried to pick up on the things the instructors were teaching the new skaters, and finally at the end got one of them to give us a short one-minute explanation of the basics of the movements and how to take the corners. I now understand why speed skaters all have huge quads. That sport is a serious leg workout! Along with the speed skating rink there was also a huge gym in the building, so we got in a good strength workout after warming up the legs on the rink.

It was a great opportunity for training, but also a good reminder of what we are aiming for. Being surrounded by the hype of the Olympics was a nice reminder of our goals and why we need to be focused and ready to go every day and every workout. While we were downtown we got to watch the Olympic clock tick down…. 215 days until the start of the 2010 Olympic Games!/pdiv style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sn-V5Ht2D1I/AAAAAAAAAHM/kRmk-cB1ngk/s1600-h/IMG_1441.JPG”br //a/diva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sn-WbGr3cYI/AAAAAAAAAHs/ExKG7fwf_CI/s1600-h/sam+fixed.jpg”img src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sn-WbGr3cYI/AAAAAAAAAHs/ExKG7fwf_CI/s320/sam+fixed.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368174673244156290″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 234px; ” //aa onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sn-WnCH15OI/AAAAAAAAAH0/JNHIwrQ9ABI/s1600-h/Skate+Sadie.jpg”img src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sn-WnCH15OI/AAAAAAAAAH0/JNHIwrQ9ABI/s320/Skate+Sadie.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5368174878177748194″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px; ” //a!–StartFragment– !–EndFragment– p/pp/pp/p !–EndFragment–div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2910103639238326543-7869445994254261408?l=methowolympicdevelopment.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
