I did an hour yesterday while watching Spies in Disguise. And I did it slowly. When I talk about slow-rowing, I am not kidding.

Slow steady extended exercise is actually a type of breathing therapy
I have always been a terrible breather. I am a breath holder. I blame growing up in Hawaii and spending all my extra time freediving. That said, I have been thinking about oxygenation since the age of Coronavirus and since I started using a home ventilator, called a CPAP, and I think slow, steady, aerobic, exercise is another form of therapeutic breathing.

An erging a day keeps the orthos away
The only thing that soothes my sore, stiff, and sometimes painful knees is at least ten minutes of easy rowing on my Model C Concept2 indoor rower—my erg.

Slow rowing is the best medicine for your knees
Neither bicycling nor running give your knees the sort of full range-of-motion they need to warm up and lubricate. Only rowing—either indoor erging or rowing on the water—offers a combination of the aerobic load of the a bike and the therapeutic strengthening offered by leg presses, leg extensions, and squats.

Some great books for slow jogging, slow running, and heart rate aerobic training
While it all started with my discovery of Slow Jogging by Hiroaki Tanaka, it's expanded to Slow Running by Chris Bore and The Maffetone Method by Dr. Philip Maffetone.

Mud Season Madness starts today on March 1—get in those 10km days!
I haven't erged yet today but I am going to aim at rowing at least 10,000 meters every day on my Concept2 Model C indoor rowing ergometer for at least 25-days during March.

Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better is a book about slow rowing for a better life for life
According to D.P. Ordway, our not doing anything physical is as much of a shock to our physiological and neurological systems as is running, cycling, and doing CrossFit; however, it's the wrong sort of shock. D.P. believes that we all should have a baseline of activity every single day and that should be at least 45-minutes every single day on a Concept2 Indoor Rower. I thought that was my idea but it's not!
