I definitely need some help, cause my overall speed sucks, & I seem to do better long distance than short distance. For example, at Disney, the first 6 miles was 25min 53sec (according to my GPS), while Sunday (4/22/07), I skated a 10K at 27min 8sec... Based on Disney, I felt as though I should have done a sub 25min 10K.

Working nights doesn't keep someone from working with an instructor; most of them can train days and weekends (or am I missing something). But if you are doing a 2 hour marathon, and want to improve distance speed, some instructors may not be able to help you much, so best if you would also work with experienced speed coaches or skaters. There are plenty in Florida, and there cost rarely is a problem.
