On top of the skating techniques, work on your leg strength and speed. The people who mentioned that you should ride a stationary bike are correct. Every 3 days I'll do sqauts and calf raises (without weights) for half an hour. The squats are also good for your cardio. I don't like riding the bike so I don't do it as much as I should, but when I do, I notice a difference on the ice.

I should also mention that when I started doing the squats and calf raises I also noticed a huge difference. It gave me more power in my stride and also helped with my balance.
