First Time Trials of the year last Friday (Oct. 10)

Already raced a 500 meters and 3k at last week's "time trials" after just about four weeks of training on the ice. And coming from some great off-ice training this summer, I was already able to see some big improvements in these races–which included crushing a personal best time in the 3k. So cool!

Olu Sijuwade also recorded all of the time trial races in a 15 minute video I put up below. My 500 meters begins at minute 4:12, and my 3,000 meters at minute 14:14 (navy skinsuit, white boots). Thanks Olu!




500m (Milwaukee PB from 2/28/14)                               37.05
500m (Oct. 10th time trials)                                        37.29 (2nd best 500m in Milwaukee)

3,000m (Previous Milwaukee PB from 9/28/13)               3:57.63
3,000m (Oct. 10th time trials)                                     3:53.08 (new PB)


I know these times may be confusing to some of you but if you do understand then you'll know why I'd be happy starting off a season like this–as racing in the beginning of the season often starts off slow.
