Slow and steady

Dear Concept2 compatriots.
Sharing a bit of success that I have had recently in spirit of mutual support.
After the gym reopened in August with COVID protocols in place, I restarted my rowing journey.
Since then, I have lost 10-15 lbs (was not diligent about getting the 'before' weight) and lost a couple of inches from my waistline.
I feel better and stronger. I'm not looking to break any records. I only want to do my best and stay in shape.
I appreciate the Concept2 logbook and the ErgData app that allows me to track workouts easily. And, I love the full body workout I get from the rower.

I restarted slowly and in the past month or so, I have been hitting the rower 2-3 times per week (thanks in large part to my partner who joins me at the gym). I generally stick with 30 min or 5000 meter workouts. I have hit my personal best for both this month!

I'm moving soon (in the US - NJ) and have used the find a rower function to identify a couple of gyms with rowers. Hoping to find a community there or online.

Thanks for listening. Stay strong and stay positive. Wear that mask!
