Good and happy news for my Tuesday Fall Team Challenge update
October 3, 2018
I got in 10,085 meters today and got in some much faster power-10s and power-20s and was able to bring down my pace down to a 1:50-2:02 pace. It’s not reflected in the log below but I am sure it’ll start manifesting in greatness, speed, and power down the road as I just get physically stronger, fitter, […]
Monday night Fall Team Challenge update
October 1, 2018
I added 16,643 meters over the last couple days, adding them to the 86,442 meters I had on Saturday. That puts me over 100km so far. As of tonight, I have pulled a total of 103,085 meters towards my goal of 200,000 meters on my Model C Concept2 (with PM5 upgrade) by midnight on October 15 for […]
Saturday Night Fall Team Challenge Update

I flaked on September 28th but am back today, the 29th. I rowed 11,231 meters tonight, adding it to the 75,211 meters I had already logged. So, as of now, my total challenge meters are 86,442 meters. I’m 43.221% to my goal of reaching 200 kilometers by October 15 at midnight. Wish me luck!
Thursday Fall Team Challenge Update
September 27, 2018
At least I am getting some meters in. Slow but sure. Wish me luck. All goes well! Commitment, dedication, and hard word—perserverance—is indeed rewarded. And I learned something: while the top competitors in a Concept2 challenge row hard and far every day of the challenge, everyone else is like the people who join a gym for […]
Planning for 20 more erging days left in the Concept2 Fall Team Challenge
September 26, 2018
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 […]
Sunday Fall Team Challenge Update
September 23, 2018
I spent parts of all day rowing along a little bit at a time but I added 11,289 meters to the 39,946 meters I had accrued. So, according to my lovely Concept2 Logbook’s 2018 Fall Team Challenge page, I’m up to 51,235 meters total–that means I am 25.6175% of the way to my goal of 200,000 meters, 200kms, […]
Fall Team Challenge Saturday Update
September 22, 2018
I had another sinus headache from just not staying hydrated enough overnight again so I didn’t really start rowing until late–almost 8 PM. Then, I only got in 7,733 meters.
Fall Team Challenge Update
September 21, 2018
Since September the 15th, I have rowed 32,213 meters towards the 200,000 meters I want to complete by October the 15th for the Fall Team Challenge that Concept2 hosts every year. Here are the last couple of days since my last report.
I just need to average 7,143 meters-per-day for 26-more-days
September 18, 2018
I didn’t get started for a couple days–mea culpa–but I have pledged to row at least 2km after every article I write. I had wanted to swing the kettlebell between articles; however, I need to average 7,143 meters-per-day for the 28-days I have to make my 200km before midnight on the 15h of October.
