  1. Okay, been a week and a half since my last entry. Part of this was because we were out of town for Thanksgiving... Got home on Friday night and did a short row, 2000 meters in a hair under 15 minutes on Saturday... then spent most of the rest of the day on my feet since I took the boys to the Air and Space Annex in Dulles (highly worth it.. in many respects better than the original Air and Space museum because they have so many full size planes, including the Enola Gay, the Concorde and the Space Shuttle Discovery (okay, nitpick.. I know the Shuttle is not an airplane... but you know what I m
  2. I had a few issues with the machine yesterday. Was able to get them resolved today did 20 minutes for 2695 meters. Bill
  3. Did another 2500 meters this morning. Will try for 3500 tomorrow. -- Bill
  4. Thanks. I find it is easier to be consistent than not... too easy to let a day or two of rest turn into a week. I actually plan on a weekend day off.. but only if I workout every day during the work week.
  5. Okay, Friday became an inadvertent rest day... I meant to row in the evening, but decided my wife needed me to make her brownies more (it was a rough day for her). Saturday we were really busy, but figuring something was better than nothing, I pushed out a thousand meter row in 7:48 seconds (Easily the fastest pace I have ever maintained for more than a few strokes). This evening, after a long day, I did a short 20 minute row and managed to go 2512 meters (My fastest time to 2500 meters). -- Bill
  6. Waited until the evening tonight. I did 35 minutes and 5 seconds and did 4300 meters on the rower. Should hit 5000 meters next week. --Bill
  7. Stayed up late watching the election returns. Still not sure what happened. Anyway, hit the rower tonight. 32 minutes, 30 seconds an 4000 meters. Got off the rower really spent. But, despite the fact that I deliberately held back a bit to make 30+ minutes today, I still ended up with 500 m split times almost as quick as my one and two thousand meter sprints yesterday. Not sure how long I can keep upping the pace like this, but at the moment, I am happy
  8. Okay, this morning the workout was shorter than intended because my 2 year old got up when my wife did (she got up early to vote before I went to work). So, this morning I did 8 minutes on the rower for a 1000 meters to warm up. And 1 and a half body weight circuits. After the kids were asleep, I did 2000 meters in 16 minutes which required me to row as hard as I could. -- Bill
  9. Okay, Saturday and Sunday were, for the most part, rest days, although both days were filled with lots of activities with my kids that kept me from being a couch potato. This morning I hit the rower... this was the day I would do 30 minutes (for the first time, certainly not the last). Did 30 minutes, 3595 meters on the rower. I might have pulled for another several minutes to get to 3750 (I like roundish numbers), but because of a return to standard time, my last ten minutes on the rower were accompanied by an audience of my three kids, all of them wanting breakfast. Anyway, Managed to ge
  10. Okay.. I cheated, I did mostly Cardio today.. 25 minutes and 30 seconds for 3003 meters on the rower... Then two sets of 15 push ups. -- Bill
  11. Okay, for a variety of reasons, was not able to workout until this evening... today was a cardio day, so on the rower I went.. and went and went (well, relative to what I have done before). Grand total is .... 21 minutes (6 minutes more than I have done before) and 2500 meters (755 meters more than before). Must say I am pretty pleased with my progress so far. -- Bill
  12. I am interested in stevia for coffee, but I also wonder if it might turn out to have some of the same problems that other alternative sweeteners. Well, before I discovered Nerd Fitness, I decided I wanted to get a machine that would allow me to work out at home since getting to the gym is just too hard right now (3 kids age 7 and under mean its tough getting to work on time, let alone leaving 90 minutes early to hit a gym). As I researched machines rowing machines floated to the top (as it were) for two reasons. The first is that the cost vs. quality curve on rowing m
  13. Good luck with that... American Ninja Warrior is really a pretty amazing competition... and better than a lot of the "reality" programs they put on TV. It might be interesting to see it and similar competitions moved from the entertainment division to the sports division (After all, I can think of no reason at all why it is not). Anyway, welcome aboard. -- Bill
