Didn't upload to RowPro

Post by sillbeer » August 27th, 2015, 9:27 pm

I just finished a 10 minute row that I programed through the PM4. When I finished I clicked on the Stop Row button in RowPro and it didn't respond. How do I upload that to my log book? Should I program a 10 minute row through RowPro and control it there?

You do everything via RowPro not the monitor. The monitor is essentially redundant with RowPro, you don't even really need to look at the screen its all in colour on the PC.

Either a quick row if you want to row online or a set row gives others the chance to see it and row with you.

Online rowing is the way to go.

All the results are then in the logbook which can easily be uploaded to the Concept 2 website so you can appear on the annual meters board and you have a permanent record of your meters each season that don't get lost.

Even a quick row if you just want to just jump online on the spur of the moment to row by yourself or check the scheduled rows, if your lucky enough to be in the right time zones there are plenty of others to row with across a wide range of pace. Click the Chat button to see who else is online for a live chat.

Set-up a scheduled row a few days out and others will join you. I set-up the rows for the whole week, the following week is done on a Friday so at 0530 GMT there is a 30 minute from Monday to Friday already set-up. Times rather than distance are more popular, that way everyone finishes together.

I'm finding that I enjoy rowing over a set time versus a set distance. I'll check out the schedule and see if anything lines up with my morning schedule. So far, I've been rowing in the evenings after work but I think rowing in the morning hours would be best. I just need to drag my butt out of bed.

RowPro is even better if your in the UK or the USA because of the number of people rowing in your time slot.

Unfortunately New Zealand doesn't line up very well with the rest of the world unless I want to get out of bed and row at 7:00am or 7:30am local time or others in the UK are prepared to get up real early for the time I like to row at 5:30pm local time.

The more the merrier, enjoy the online rowing, its addictive.
