Re: Madness 2019!

:x :oops: :roll: :wink: No rowing for at least another week for me. No mud season challenge. No 1MM this year. Feeling a bit annoyed since I had originally scheduled this procedure for the end of Jan, so that I could row in March, but life happens. What I'm really not looking forward to is the week ...

Re: Holly's journey

Hey Holly, Congrats on doing 1000m when you probably didn't feel like doing anything at all! When I have those days I try to remember that those are the days I'm actually making the most progress! I'm doing something rather than nothing, and the fact that it's difficult actually means that I'm makin...

Re: Madness 2019!

Hey Holly, Great job on setting yourself a good challenge. Turns out I was probably a bit too aggressive in starting back rowing, so I'm not sure I'll make the challenge at any level. :| I never actually asked my doctor when I could start back to rowing and I'm thinking I may have jumped the gun a b...

Madness 2019!

March Madness! Mud Season Madness! Enough of winter already madness! :lol: Had to take a break from rowing due to stitches in my lower leg. (Minor procedure and all is well.) But stitches are gone as of Weds, and I got my first row in this morning (5K) after a 10 day hiatus. My plan is do 10K for 10...

Re: February Follies 2019

DOH! Sorry just saw your post about the CTC!

I had intended to do it in Feb, but work/life got busy and I had a minor procedure that resulted in stitches in my leg so no rowing for the past week+.

Been catching up on all the great posts!

Re: February Follies 2019

Hey Folks, well I'm in danger of not making the Valentine Day challenge. :roll: There's still a chance, if I get a row in when I get home tonight and don't oversleep tomorrow so I can do my morning row. :) February is always the toughest for me. How is everyone else doing? Sharky keep on rowing, jus...

Re: Holly's journey

Hey Holly, Great Job!!! Based on the numbers, my guess is that you are looking at Calories per hour which you can change. Not sure if you are asking about the display on the monitor or on your phone. Since you just got your erg, you probably have a PM5 monitor. https://www.concept2.com/service/monit...

Re: Holly's journey

Hi Holly, Thanks sharky, you know its just struck me that you lost fifty pounds in one year... That's a stunning achievement on its own, total respect. Do you row every day? for how long and what did you change in your diet, sorry a million and one questions. ... Thanks! I've tried to keep this brie...

Re: February Follies 2019

Hey David, Thanx for the ideas! I did at one time think about doing a virtual tour. Mapping out a route, rowing from one place to another, then, when getting to a town, reading about it. My erg is in front of my TV. I like rowing during football because I can concentrate on the game. I also don't ca...

Re: Holly's journey

YEAH HOLLY! :clap: :thumbsup: :clap: :thumbsup: :clap: :thumbsup: I remember those days. (no too long ago!) In the beginning it's much more about simply rowing a bit each day. And good job making it 3 minutes! I have friends who barely made 2 minutes on their first row. Just remember, you're lapping...

February Follies 2019

Hey folks, Another month another challenge. I don't do the SkiErg and I am not military, so it will be a month of trying to stay motivated other than when I'm doing the Valentine challenge. After 'The big game', no football. (although I have squirreled away a couple of college games B) ) Last year I...
