Last week's summary

I got a little behind on my blogging over the weekend.  So much stuff to do, and 48 hours of weekend just doesn't seem to be enough to get it all done!

Friday combined a 10K row in the morning with more rowing in the afternoon at CrossFit.   At CrossFit we did a 2-person team workout where each person took turns rowing 300m, 600m, 900m, 600m, 300m.  One person rested while the other person rowed the interval.   It was a fun workout (I really like the team workouts at CrossFit), and I managed to pull some pretty decent intervals.

Saturday was a rest day as far as rowing goes, but Sunday started off with another 10K row.

So, my total for the week was 64,958 meters.  My most in a week thus far.  And, that takes me past the 300,000 meter mark for the year!

I've got CrossFit Endurance tonight, but will need to add some additional meters on at the end to get over 10K for the day.  At this point I have a solid week in on the 10K March Madness Challenge... I'd hate to blow it now! :-)

  1. Good job on the 10K MarchMadness challenge and the 300,000 mrs. [sounds like a huge distance when you put it that way ]

    Weird and wonderful how a challenge can motivate/pressure one to do these things.

  2. Thanks guys!

    The challenges are a big help for me. Knowing there is a challenge puts milestone along the path for me to hit. And once I've logged several days of the 10K challenge, I really don't want to lose that momentum. I am already thinking about how I'm going to add 6K to my 4K of rowing at CrossFit Endurance tonight to make sure I get my 10K in today!

    I have to say (again) that the accountability really helps me too. That is why I decided to blog about this little million meter adventure. Knowing that people are reading this blog, even if it is just a few people, makes me feel accountable to someone other than myself.

    So, again, thanks guys! And thanks for reading the blog. It really helps me more than you might imagine.
