    Default How long and often do you skate?

    Pretty self explanatory... I skate monday through friday from 3 to 9 PM and on the weekends 12 to 9, I pretty much skate every day. How about you guys?

    every day i can, for atleast half an hour if it's too hot or for as many hours as i can be bothered..sometimes i'll go to the local park 3 times in a day..

    i can't go a week without going for some kind of skate, i don't feel right after that long..

    I try to skate as much as possible. Sometimes its just one sesh a week but usually it like 3 or 4 anywhere from 45 min to like 3 hours. It depends on how much time i have, what my kids are doing and how long my legs hold out for.

    I skate pretty much every day...excluding rainy days, and days that I'm injured in some way.

    When I do skate...usually after work...I skate pretty much all day...taking a 20-30 minute break between 4:30 and 8:30.

    Weekends....well...Friday night...usually get smashed(if thats what my GF wants to do that is)...then Saturday, I only skate a few hours due to the hangover.

    Sundays are my proclaimed skating day...and my girlfriend and friends know it. I skate all day long every Sunday. I can skate anywhere I want...since everything is closed.
    My Setup:
    ~Baker 7.75~~Thunder Cole Lights Low~~Spitfire Street Burners 99D 52mm~~Black Magic grip~

    I'm out weekend mornings for 2 - 3 hours and sometimes after that. Thursday nights under lights has been on lately as well. Had 5 days off work and been out every day. Bunged my knee this morning but will still give tomorrow a shot..

    Every chance I get, it's never for a set amount of time. Some days I've skated for only 1 hour, other days I've skated for 10 hours.

    In the summer, very day, unless I'm sore (like today, my quads are killing me, I jumped down gaps too much yesterday). Usually 3 or 4 hours.

    Rainy season, I don't know, we don't have a garage with a mini-ramp anymore, we can always skate our school, but for a better spot, we have to take a bus to another 2 covered schools good to skate. One of them, we break in, another has solid fences with no route in without school in session, so we only have a 4 stair at that school now, but it's smooth and covered. Oregon, blaargh... Nice parks, if I could make trips there.

    Sometimes only once a week or so, for a little while. With an 8-month-old baby, I don't have a ton of time.

    I skate on my lunchbreak when I can. Depends on how hot is, because I don't want to be sitting at my desk soaked in sweat the rest of the day.

    Hardly ever lately. Used to head to the park on my lunch break and ride around the neighborhood a couple times a week. This summer's been too hot. It's cooled down some, but still don't have the energy for it that I had mid 40s now in the late 40s. I still see myself getting out a couple times a month or so, but age seems to be sapping my energy and motivation for skating (or other physical activities) more often. Seems that I hit a wall when turning 48. Also really busy with kid related activities.. seems that if I get some time to myself I don't feel like skating much. If I start gaining weight that will have to change.
