Concept2 Fall Team Challenge

Tuesday Fall Team Challenge Update

I didn’t get as many meters as I wanted tonight primarily because of technical failures. I moved from POLAR H7 back to an old school Garmin ANT+ strap and disabled my USB thumb drive on my PM5 and then needed to swap out a dying Apple iPhone 5 and set up my Samsung S8 Active to work with the ErgData app. All works now. So, I only pulled a quick 8,273 meters. I didn’t row at all yesterday.

I am now up to 59,508 meters of the 200,000 meters I want to pull before October 15th at midnight.  I am now 29.754% of the way there. Now, onto the Potomac Boat Club team and how we’re doing as of Tuesday night. As of tonight, the team of 13 have pulled 325,659 meters and I’m maintaining my number two position in the boat, in terms of meters rowed:

73Joanna InksterF39Burra indoor58,790m
74Daniel MarquardM29Hannoverscher Ruder-Club von 1880 e.V.58,446m

I’ll do better tomorrow. Now that the tech is sorted. I am feeling really good now. My body is really adapting to the rowing. I do need longer sets, however. I would like to do 30-minute steady states and eveb maybe some 40, 50, and hour long steady state sets. That would be good for my body, good for calorie burning, and good for my discipline. I need more discipline and dedication. Wish me luck!
