I'm aware with inline skating; a big difference from skiing is the lead foot reversal. When I skate, I can rip rapid fire slalom turns with nice parallel shins all day long, as long as my inside foot is in front on the outside foot. Of course, skiing is the reverse. Skating with the inside foot behind the outside doesn't work like it does skiing. My question is: when skating, should I force my feet to reverse (as in skiing) and practice skating that way, or skate the way you're supposed to, and change back once I get back on snow? How do other skater / skiers approach this? Thanks.
