Whoop, whoop and we have ANOTHER Lunie meter millionaire! Congratulations, Zach, on achieving a ONE million meter erging season! For someone for whom less is more (as in sub 2 minutes, etc.), you have zoomed along the meter highway! We wish you many, MANY more milestones and celebrations! And, who knows, some people even get faster after 40....

Zach is the 17th Lunie meter millionaire of the season!

1,011,101 meters ! I had to sacrifice the daily palindrome for the seasonal palindrome.

I reached out to Concept2 regarding the two issues that Zach cited:

- the negative numbers pulled on his "hurt me" row

- the reset of the PM5 monitor to 0 once 100K had been passed

Here's the reply received:

Hi Jan,

It looks there is a bug in the Android ErgData which caused the "going negative" issue. Our developer now knows about it and will work on addressing it.

The max for a BikeErg Just Ride workout is 100K, this is why the monitor reset back to 0. You can create a pre-set single distance workout that's longer than 100K but the monitor behaved appropriately in this case by resetting back to 0 once he hit the 100K max.
Regards,
Ben Hickory

I don't know how I missed this! Thank you for reaching out to Concept2 - I'm eager for an ErgData fix. I can reliably break ErgData now by doing ad-hoc intervals in a Just Row session. It's quite amusing to see the logbook suggesting I averaged 35,000 watts for a few minutes. ...

All In A Couple of Days of Erging: Team Progress Thru 9.24.2020

Image Day 11 of 31 !!!

Here are the current standings: https://log.concept2.com/challenges/ftc/2021/teams


We have arrived at a Simon and Garfunkel moment in the Challenge....and the Free Spirits are chomping at the backside of our ergs! Still, it is a long Challenge and many, MANY things can and do happen! Days you can't contribute, and days you can donate more than once! The first two weeks of any month long team Challenge are always all about building a team - and we have 90 Lunies on the Fall Challenge Team, which is truly awesome! The last two weeks (which begin on October 1st) are when the real Challenge starts! So buckle up, Lunies - it's going to be a wild ride and we need all ergs in motion!

Hi LUNA-TICS,

I wrote the following tool for Free Spirits, but thought you might appreciate it to keep track of how you are all doing :)

https://freespiritsrowing.com/challenge ... CS&id=2537

I'm sure I will keep playing with it and adapting it over the next few days, so stay tuned and I hope you enjoy it.

It's been quite a scrap between our two teams today. Long may it last :D :D

Here are the current standings: https://log.concept2.com/challenges/ftc/2021/teams

Or, you can take a look at the clever, albeit cheeky, galactic gauntlet gift thrown down by our nearest competitors, the Free Spirits. It is a nice tool, and I will naturally want to know how it was written...I am not too familiar with the php code, although do want to create the signature for bike erg meters (there is one that I think Free Spirits made for indoor rowers).

All In A BIG Day's ERG: Team Progress Thru 9.26.2020

Post by Kona2 » September 27th, 2020, 12:24 pm

Image Day 13 of 31 !!!

Here are the current standings: https://log.concept2.com/challenges/ftc/2021/teams

What a big day for the Lunie team yesterday was! Collectively we churned out almost 850,000 meters. During a "regular" season day, we average somewhere in the 390 K range. During the previous days in the Challenge, a big day was 500 to 600 K meters. Virtual cartwheels and high fives for all the extra time and energy everyone bestowed upon the Challenge.

Here's the link the friendly spirits shared:

https://freespiritsrowing.com/challenge ... CS&id=2537


It is good for many things - including keeping track of bigger Challenge team milestones that celebrate who has hit the 200 K milestone and 100 K and 50 K. I still like to call out the names - but am often afraid I might miss someone.

My list says 200 K achieved by Zach, Tony W, and Gary yesterday. 100 K achieved by Robin, Joerg, and JD yesterday.


Zach's palindromic mega is, perhaps, a team record meters for a single day (Brett and Zach may trade this title often). But what is "carrying" us forward is the solid extra effort of all the Lunies - we are going after this Challenge in a Lunie legendary way ! As always, do what you can when you can...but do something!

MILESTONES...Bragging Rights...Celebrations:

3.25 MM Ron M
2.6 MM Minnie
2.45 MM Brett
