Olympic Trials and Olympics

I had a decent 1500m and actually moved my left blade about a quarter inch the night before the race. I had it to far to the outside and actually went faster in my first lap of my 1500m than my 500m. Go figure. I had a short track setup on my left since I did short track till Sept 1st. It was hurting me big time on my left. Skated warmup on it and it felt great immediately.
Now they are much more centered on the left and can't wait for the next few months on them. Right foot is pretty easy just go from middle of your Achilles to between your first two toes or the middle of you big toe if you like it to the inside. It was a no brain er for the past eight years as i have been on the same boots. My new SS boots are a little over a month and working great.

Now here's a little video to get you ready for NBC's coverage of the upcoming Olympics. How about a return to the good old days of just showing the events.
