Mud Season Madness starts today on March 1—get in those 10km days!
March 1, 2018
I haven’t erged yet today but I am going to aim at rowing at least 10,000 meters every day on my Concept2 Model C indoor rowing ergometer for at least 25-days during March. Why am I being so specific with 10,000 meters and 25 days in March?
10k-A-Day Keeps the Doctor Away
Why don’t you join me in completing the Mud Season Madness by dusting off your nearest Concept2 Indoor Rower that you store at home, in your garage, in your building’s fitness area, in your local gym, in a nearby YMCA, or at your local boathouse and putting in either 5,000m or 10,000m every day for the rest of March.
from today, March 1, 2018, through March 31, 2018, and row 10,000 meters, by hook or crook, every day for 25 days or more in March? Actually, there are two levels: The Basic Challenge and The Advanced Challenge: 5,000 meters each day or 10,000 meters each day, respectively, for 25 days.
Mud Season Madness is an individual challenge so you don’t need to be part of a team to participate, you only need to log your meters over on the Concept2 online logbook.
If you are able to row more than 5km/day for 25-days in March, you’ll complete the basic challenge and if you can muster 5km/day for 25 days, you’ll complete the advanced challenge.
Good luck! I’ll be rowing right there with you!
2018 World Erg Challenge
Think of it this way: rowing 10 kilometers every day will prepare your body for the World Erg Challenge from March 15 through mid-April.
If you just start with some slow-rowing, then you can develop your strength, stamina, and endurance enough in the two weeks leading up to WRC, pulling 10k/day, to really benefit your virtual team. The World Erg Challenge is a team challenge so you must belong to a team to participate (see the team member page).
