My messy CBreeze hack on my Model C Concept2 rowing ergometer to make it work best for me
February 7, 2019
I was having a terrible time keeping my CBreeze on the fan so I glued sloppy please rails on either side of my Concept2 Model C’s fan. Really messy. Used a silicon glue. The paracord rails aren’t going anywhere. No more struggling with the placement of the elastic cords.

Between now and midnight, October 15, I have 20 full days to row at least 200,000 meters. So far, I’ve rowed 59,508 meters and have 140,492 meters left to go. That requires me to erg an average of 7,024.6 meters-per-day between now and then. I feel pretty good about this as I’ve been getting in […]
Tuesday Fall Team Challenge Update
September 25, 2018
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 […]

Unlike most Concept2 Challenges, the Holiday Challenge demands a lot from us from the very beginning: 6,451.61 meters-per-day, on average, to accumulate 200,000 meters over the 31-day Concept2 Holiday Challenge—which is a lot if you’re not used to high-mileage rowing.
