I'm going to do another 10,000 tonight.  Keeping it ticking over, like.

This leads me to the following question; in which order should I do things?

Row then hundred push ups and two hundred sit ups programme (both week 6 day 3, but different columns) or do the push ups and sit ups first?

I went for push ups etc first.  Probably wise.

I did the 10,000m a bit faster than last night.  42:12.2 iirc.

So that's me on 47,432.  Almost half way.

Have got two Christmas outings (work, 5-a-side) this week.  Oops.

10,000m in 44:22.3 this morning, which is 17 seconds quicker than my previous best :thumbsup:

Total distance in the challenge period now 86,000m.  Not far to go now, though I don't intend to stop at 100k.

I did my slowest 10,000m.  Mainly because my earphones kept coming out.  Popped into town and bought some coffee beans and some sports earphones which should stay in better.

57432m done - not far to go now.

Mon & Tues should put me on 77432 and if I do both those I think I'll have it licked.  :thumbsup:

I decided to mix it up a bit tonight; a few 500m at 1:55 or so mixed in to the 10,000m.

Result: a PB time of 41:24.1

And I'm on 67,432m.

Strangely, the 10,000m that I entered on Saturday 12/12 is still there.

I decided to mix it up a bit tonight; a few 500m at 1:55 or so mixed in to the 10,000m.

Result: a PB time of 41:24.1

And I'm on 67,432m.


Well done :thumbsup:

Going to core stability class at 5.15 this evening, then will jump on the rower again.  Problem: equipment use is limit to 30 mins until 7pm and the class finishes at 5.45.  So I think I might do a 30 min row, wander off to the free weights for a few minutes then come back and do another 30.   ;D  That should put another 14,000+ metres down.

Another blister. @simonproven | TweetPhoto Changed grip helped but with so much distance I've found a new location to blister. Fortunately I won't be rowing again til Saturday.

7000m last night and 7000m tonight.  That's 100,000m completed :smug:  It doesn't seem to get any easier, though!

Another 10,000m yesterday, but my motivation is weakening.  Maybe it's something to do with the fact that my rowing machine is in a detached unheated garage, where the indoor temperature is hardly any different from the outdoor temperature.

Well, since Tuesday I've done nowt.  Wednesday: work xmas party, Thursday: 5-a-side curry, Friday drinkies and food with kung fu mates.  Saturday, well I didn't get to bed til 4am and it's a 5 mile cycle to the gym which closes at 2pm etc.  Sunday not much better and christmas shopping needed doing.

So I now have to do the remaining 18,500m in 3 days.  :thumbsup:

I'm going to row /exactly/ 100,000m.  :P

I've just come out of my garage from doing another 10,000m, in a personal best time of 44:04.8, so I'm quite pleased with that.  That's 120,000m I've done in the challenge period, and I might squeeze another session in some time tomorrow.

I've noticed that all my PB times are made in daytime sessions rather than evening sessions.  Must be something to do with being tired after a day's work, or maybe I'm just not an evening person.

Another 10,000m on Christmas Eve, so a total of 130,000m in the challenge period (Nov 26 to Dec 24). 

Today I've just had another go at setting a time for 2,000m, in spite of having had a fairly heavy alcoholic day yesterday.  I managed to do 8:08.5, which is 6.3 seconds better than my previous best, achieved four weeks ago.  It seems that training pays off, though I still almost felt tlike throwing up at the end of it.

Well done, I've not done anything since the 22nd.  I didn't have time on the 23rd and on the 24 I was on the train.

No rowing for me since 28 December, but I did manage to get out on my bike today - first ride since 13 December.  Did 66 miles, making my toal for the year 4,356.

40:48.7  :)  :-\  :-[  :-X  :-X  :sick:

 ;D

I wasn't sick but I did feel a bit funny during the last 1000m - I averaged 1:55 or so for the final 1250m.

That'll be the effect of tapering then (no exercise of note for nearly 2 weeks).

I'll join you on this, if you want to set up a team.  It'll give me an incentive to cross the snowbound path to the garage, where my rower is.  At the moment, that 10 yards of snow and ice, and the icy temperature in the garage is doing a good job of destroying my willpower.

I'm not surprised you felt a bit funny.  I can't manage 1:55 pace even for a 2,000 metre effort, let alone at the end of a 10,000m row!

If we're going to do the team challenge thing, let me know when you've set up a team, and I'll log on and join it.  I already have an online logbook on the concept2.com website.

thinks, I sometimes use a rower for warm ups, maybe I should join. 1000m at a time isn't going to help much though is it ? Perhaps with the lack of cycling I should do more rowing.
