Fall Team Challenge Saturday Update

Concept2 Fall Team Challenge

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.

    7,733m 25 02:43 80 400 143

 

That brings my total for the Concept2 Fall Team Challenge tonight to 39,946m of 200,000m--I am 20% of the way to my goal, which is something. My team and affiliation, Potomac Boat Club, has a combined 268,125m so far.

Of 143 possible rowers that are affiliated to PBC, only 12 of us are in the 2018 Fall Team Challenge. The cut off for joining the boat was midnight on the 20th so too late now. I am holing onto my second position so far, something I am proud of, though I do see that there's only less than 12km between David Wilson and me. 

But it's not a competition between me and my boatmates. I just want to contribute and not be anywhere close to DFL

Where we are compared to all the other On-Water, proper, boat clubs with 6-20 members:

1 Burra indoor On-Water 932,966m 11 84,815m
2 RowLA On-Water 867,541m 17 51,032m
3 612 Endurance On-Water 490,900m 17 28,876m

13 Recovery on Water On-Water 231,575m 8 28,947m

 

I am only reporting all of this because I am pretty excited about being excited about it this year. And I don't want to drop out or give up or get pulled away by other things. I should be giving 10,000m-50,000m/day but I am just doing what I am doing. As long as I do it. Even if it is super slow. 

Individually, it's a bloodbath!

1220 William VAN NEDER M 47 Team Sanzo 40,000m
1221 isabella soto F 16 RowLA 39,994m
1222 Chris Abraham M 48 Potomac Boat Club 39,946m
1223 simona muntyan F 30 GRIT MILITIA 39,840m
1224 Gene Peters M 83 ANCIENTS 39,806m

 

And when it comes down more to On-Water-only, it looks better:

80 Tim McGovern M 54 SwanCreek 40,267m
81 Darren White M 48 Herne Bay Amateur Rowing Club 40,000m
82 isabella soto F 16 RowLA 39,994m
83 Chris Abraham M 48 Potomac Boat Club 39,946m
84 Steve Williams M 56 Clevedon Pilot Gig Club LSV 39,430m
85 Ryan Root M 25 Newport SeaBase Rowing Team 39,383m
86 Kristen Chadwell F 52 Newport SeaBase Rowing Team 39,349m

 

But it's not that good because it's warm enough here in DC to row out on the Potomac so that's why I don't have that much competition when it comes to other On-Water rowers. And it doesn't break anything according to age.   I'll try to work even harder tomorrow. And more duration, more distance, and maybe a better, stronger pace, as well.  Wish me luck!
