Whooooooosh!! That's the sound of you and your erg flying through yet ANOTHER month!!

Image 32 Lunies on the Honor Board!

Congratulations to David T, Tim, Ted, Maria L-G, Jeff D, Dan O' and Heather on finishing the Crew Challenge! Well done, everybody!

ImageImageImage

Hooboy! And if this last month flew by...well, hang on because the next two are going light speed on us! Halloween might have just concluded, but the biggest Challenge of them all looms on the horizon. Yes, the Holiday Challenge is on its way! Reindeer season will be upon us before you're ready. What's even more significant is that this year we have 27 days to get the Challenge completed. Last year was a biggie year...we had 33 days. So. Get your holiday prep done between now and Nov 27 and you will be able to comfortably DO IT ALL. Hahaha. Like that's going to happen. If you're going for the 200K milestone, the holiday pin and reindeer bling...it's 7500 m a day if you erg every day. More realistically, you will erg fewer days. Usually, I'd say choose 25 ..but when there's only 27 to start with...well, 22 or 23 days is more likely for erg availability. That bumps your daily total on days that you erg to between 8700 and 9100 give or take a few meters. Think of all the calories you will offset. But do think ahead. Work up to that amount of meters between now and Nov 28. There is time.

Behold and forsooth - two words to garner your attention! In the last year, the bike erg population in our Luniverse has doubled! Quietly, because I don't remember some saying much about their new acquisitions! We now have 14 bike erg contributors - granted some are multi-erg contributors. This is awesome! In fact, there's no time like now to browse the Concept2 offerings...and whisper to Santa that a new erg under the tree would be ever so much appreciated!

There's something so wrong about this cartoon, but Blitzen the reindeer name is yours...as long as you don't wear him.

For those new to the team, we are nearing reindeer season. Here in the Luniverse, we have some good fun with the Holiday Challenge. A quick preview:
- at 100 K (200 K for bike ergers), you earn your reindeer - you can choose a reindeer name, or one will be bestowed
- at 200 K (400 K for bike ergers), you earn your holiday challenge pin, AND reindeer bling...the lighted antlers
- at 300 K (600 K for bike ergers), you earn the flashing harness
- at 400 K (800 K for bike ergers), you earn the tail wag
- at 500 K (1 MM for bike ergers), you earn the ear wag

Half marathon training

Post by Jodi » November 11th, 2019, 9:28 am

I have been having some trouble with what I thought was my PM3 but was in fact the cord that goes to the monitor. It stopped me dead in my tracks during the Fall Team challenge. I was able to replace it myself and am back to rowing. Now that it's cold outside and the beach is no longer an option I figured I'd set a goal for myself. So I'm planning on rowing a half-marathon on New Years Day. I looked and looked for an 8 week rowing plan and couldn't find any that suited me, so I took a half-marathon training plan for running and converted it for rowing. I'll see how this works out and if it turns out to be a good plan (meaning one that I don't die trying to do) I might post it someplace for others looking for something similar.
I'm hoping that by sharing my goal with my fellow Luna-Tics it will make me accountable and less apt to set this goal aside when it starts getting tough. :lol: And if I accomplish this goal I should have a reindeer in the Holiday Challenge at the very least. :wink:
