Coach Fola Awosika Row Vigor

Arlington now has RowVigor studio

This morning I met with coach Fola Awosika of Row Vigor for my Foundations class. I was the only one in the class so I got to spend some great time chatting with Fola about Row Vigor. Fola quickly discovered that I have been rowing and erging since 1988 so he gave me back my free credit […]

Chris Abraham's Million Meter Club Concept2

Member of the Concept2 Million Meter Club!

I’m actually really proud of this. Hard work. A million meters rowed. Next: 2 million meters!  I started logging my rows on June 7, 2011, and so it’s taken me 1,752 days — 4 years, 9 months, and 18 days* — to reach my goal of reaching 1,000,000 meters on my Model C Concept2 Indoor rower. But it […]

Jan 12 Concept2 Workout of the Day WOD

Doing Today’s Concept2 Workout of the Day (WOD)

It’s already the 12th and I haven’t even started the 2016 Concept2 Virtual Team Challenge to join my teammates on Team Grotto — but I shall today. So, since my back is now better, I’ll try to get back into the saddle with today’s January 12, 2016, daily WOD for the Concept2 Indoor Rower rowing ergometer.

Action films make for a grand row

While I appreciate UCanRow2’s recent article, 10 Indoor Rowing Workouts to Kill 10K, I must admit that my secret is watching streaming movies off of Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon. Tonight, it was 100% Hulu Plus streaming over Roku onto my Sony Trinitron: Robocop and A View to a Kill. I have some news: after two months […]

Keep rowing between the challenges!

The best thing for me to do is to row at least 10,000 meters every day for the rest of my life; and, the hardest thing to do is to continue rowing between Concept2 Online Challenges — which is stupid because each challenge is only long enough to really get you back into rowing shape so […]

Chris Abraham 2015 Concept2 Holiday Challenge

Finished the Holiday Challenge with 157,762 meters

The good news is that I rowed more than 100,000 meters during the 2015 Concept2 Holiday Challenge —  157,762 meters — but the bad news is that I came short of the 200km that I wanted to accrue before midnight last night. This earned me a 100,000 meter award certificate from Concep2 but I came […]

3 days until the Holiday Challenge ends

You know how I thought it was a good idea to try out CrossFit in the middle of the Concept2 Holiday Challenge? Well, it wasn’t. I kind of tweaked my left knee a little bit — not so much from injury just from not remotely stretching well enough. That said, I feel like I was […]

Getting my Concept2 groove on towards 200km

  Date Distance Time Pace 12/12/2015 10,000m 03:45.6 03:11.2 I’m just procrastinating until I have to jump back on the erg to cover another stationary 10km on my Model C Concept2 Indoor Rower en route to making it to 200km by midnight Christmas Eve. Last night I covered 10km so I am up to 91,643 […]

Catching up with the Concept2 Holiday Challenge

Because I am getting stronger. 10,660 total meters over two workouts, one after the other, actually. So, I am up to 81,643 meters of the 200,000 meters I aspire to hit […]
