Salomon Inline skates

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got my Salomon Tr Mag elite inlines last night
They feel great. Now all I need to do is have a dry weekend so I can try them out. Got the knee/elbow/wrist protectors and will use my Bike helmet. Maybe I'll bring them to work on Thursday so I can skate a bit during lunch.

Any tips for ankle strengthening? I can tell my shins are going to be sore for a few days.

Hey dchan - Great news on the skate purchase!!! I have a pair of the Salomon (TR9 - I think, the one with the moldable footbed). They fit great and are very fast.

As for strengthening your ankles, just skate. There are a couple exercises (toe raises and heel raises) that will work your calves and soleus(sp?) muscles, but it just doesn't compare to how they're worked when you skate.

Congrats on the skates dchan! One of these days we are going to have to meet for a skate (and a glass of wine!)

What you are feeling in your shins will pass. I skate a fair amount and find that often when I use a different skate I get those pains. I believe that it is from using the "wrong" muscles in trying to compensate for a different performance package (support, whatever you want to call it). Someone mentioned to just skate more. I agree.
