    are you training a sprinter or what?

    'running on first steps' doesn't really seem like a hockey thing to me.

    i mean, just watch the skills comp from tonight with the fastest skater. there's no 'running on the ice'. those first strides are powerful skating strides. quicker, yes. but not really anything like 'running'.
