Math geek modus on: Nope, you would need 10k in a 5 day week to reach 2.5 million. But that kind of usage is not uncommon at all and 5k would be enough to easily reach over 1 million.

Been erging since may '14. Currently at 3.6MM meters. Probably 90% of this on home machine; 20% at YMCA gym.

Dang Jack...that's some serious mileage! I started erging consistently since July '14 and have logged about 2.3 million meters so far
Male, 55, 6'3", 225 lbs, erging is central to my cross training

Lot of zombie pulling in the monthly C2 challenges, T_M. I don't recommend it as it kills pace. I'm sure you're a better athlete for not emphasizing pulling chain for its own sake. Jack
