First 10K and more challenges

Tonight I rowed my first 10K.  And other than being a little "saddle sore" it wasn't too bad.   I was focusing mostly on technique and not worrying about pace.  It felt good to get that one under my belt as it is the longest single distance I've rowed to date (yesterday's 6K was the second longest).

And speaking of long distances, I have decided to participate in the Concept2 Global Marathon Challenge in April.  This challenge is sponsored by Concept2 and is open to anyone with a logbook account at the Concept2 web site.  The challenge is to row 42,195 meters in one workout.  My friend Bethany at CrossFit Geneseo has agreed to do it with me... not sure who talked who into doing this... but on Sunday April 18th we will both be tackling that monster.   I have to confess that it has me a little bit nervous... that's a long time to be sitting in a rowing seat!   Nonetheless, I am looking forward to the challenge!

  1. Congrats on your first 10K Jeff!! I got to 89,285 today and am trying to resist the temptation to go up there and make it an an even 90. My posterior chain is a little fried with the Wods this week and the extra rowing! I'm a little nervous about the marathon as well, but I'm also kinda psyched about it!
