Adding my Happy Birthday wish to the birthday twins.
And happy to hear from you, Louis.
I'm chilling on the beach this week. Fortunate that it came early in the Dog Days challenge. If it were any later in the challenge, I think I would need to borrow Louis' monitor to have any chance. :D
I could have used a magic monitor like that a few times, too! Funny, danwho!

Welcome back to Terry B , and welcome to Jamie ! Jamie's completed the week 1 totals for Dog Days, exceeded those numbers actually! Good stuff. That brings us to 37 Lunies on the Honor Board through week 1 (and still have the rest of today and tomorrow to get yer numbers done!).

It only happened that one time. Maybe, I should not have updated the firmware to keep its magic. It could be it just felt bad for the slow rowing fat guy (me).

Hello Fellow Luna-Tics,

I hope everyone is well. I have a quick question, have any of used RowPro or any other PC software? If so what are your thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Happy Erging
Louie

Now onto Week 2 of the Challenge....and whoa! the goal posts have moved!!

Week 1 recap: 47 Lunies slogged through the initial week! Hooyah and keep going !!

Welcome to new teammate Vanessa, and welcome back to Stefan! Glad to have you aboard for the 2019 season!

No matter how you divvy up your 20,000 m for the week, or what erg machine(s) you use to complete that weekly minimum....get er done! Some of us will be more deadline driven than others...just remember, this isn't a paper you can write all in the last 24 hours. Oh yes, we have ALL done that one. And we've also done the last minute meter push, which is an uff da - especially when the meter total gets up past 20K.

We're a little over one-third of the way through this Challenge.....don't blink and don't miss too many days...



Still navigating all the new mysteries and vagaries of the different meter batches for bike ergs and indoor rowers. I note that while there is a cumulative meter total on my log page, when I check back to the million meter collectives, it is separated out by machine type. So my rowing machine meter totals have been frozen in time while I use the bike erg as an extra training tool for the upcoming Pedal the Plains...and I have to think of the lifetime meters on my logbook page as a pie chart.... :o

Segue from the rusting Tin Man to "things I did not know about Dorothy and her shoes!" Many of the illustrated Wizard of Oz books show Dorothy wearing silver slippers, not the iconic red, so I spun off into research mode. Apparently, Mr. Baum had Dot wearing silver slippers in his book ... but, when Hollywood cast Judy-G in glorious technicolor, they decided that "ruby red" slippers showed up so much better against the yellow brick road. Snort. Talk about rewriting history!
