Robert Burnson replied to DynV Montrealer's discussion Front lower leg pain
"Not sure what is causing this pain. But suggest you redouble your effort to skate in the low position: bent at the knees as though sitting in a chair. Note: this does not mean bending forward at the waist. Hope this helps."

"It's hard to make the transition from aggressive wheels to the bigger 100 mm wheels. Try swapping out the wheels for 90 mm wheels. And then when you get used to them put the hundred millimeter wheels back on."

Thank you for your suggestions for skating with bigger wheels. I really appreciate any advice you can give me. I read somewhere that with bigger wheels you should push off to the front instead of the side (as I used to do). I will try bending my knees more and pray that you are correct and I will learn to love the new skates like I did my old ones.

THX, this is something that is very new to me, so I really don't know a lot about it. Went looking at skates the other day & tried some on, have not got any as of yet. Did pick up some wrist guards. Plus it looks like you rollerblader's wear almost the same outfit as us cyclist, lol Thats good, wont have to go buy anything extra.

Going to pick up some knee & elbow pads soon & it looks like I can just use my bike helmet, any other tips on safety??

I'm just finally getting back into it, I last competed in 2004 then became pregnant with my first baby, circumstances after that just weren't good for me to get any consistent training. I did still session skate though. Then I had my daughter in 2008. I'm just now to the point where I am able to consistently practice, twice a week now. It's still difficult to get anymore skating training than that since I can't just take off and go skate somewhere when I have a 5 yr old and a 2 yr old. My 5 yr old has started skating though now, he's been going to speed skating practices with me, so now hopefully it's only a matter of a little more time before both my kids are skating and then they can just go with me to practices at least. :)

Hi Robert,

Yeah, it has been a different kind of spring/summer for me not being able to skate. I have a soft tissue tear in my foot and it has taken forever to heal. I tried skating two months ago when I thought I was 90% healed, but that was a mistake and set be back. The healing has gone slowly and I think it would be wise to take the entire summer off, to make sure I am fully healed this time. Thanks for asking. I read Inline Planet almost daily.
