I'm thinking when I finally get the 180 lb mark (within 2 months hopefully) I'll have to bring back in some cardio which right now I've pretty much stopped entirely. Speed skating has always looked like fun so thinking about giving it a whirl. I like sprinting but its a bit too high impact on my knees so figure this will be a nice compromise.
Any of you inline speed skate? I'm looking for suggestions on a cheap (hopefully sub $300) skate that comes with the boot, wheels, bearings, everything a first timer will need. And suggestions on fitting since it seems I'll have to order it online and would hate to go back and forth with sizes.
I'll probably start with twice a week 30 minute skate sessions and slowly increase the sessions as I increase my own weight. Don't want to overdue the cardio though and wind up losing it all right back off.
