My messy CBreeze hack on my Model C Concept2 rowing ergometer to make it work best for me
I was having a terrible time keeping my CBreeze on the fan so I glued sloppy please rails on either side of my Concept2 Model C's fan. Really messy. Used a silicon glue. The paracord rails aren't going anywhere. No more struggling with the placement of the elastic cords.

Please never forget to stretch after all your workouts like I do
Even if you're just taking it easy and not even breaking a sweat during your exercises, including constitutional walks and family saunters and even really slow rows on your rowing erg, never forget to give yourself a nice stretch every time your done with your exercises, even if you just get just a little bit of a warm-up.

The ProW has an innovative shape that relieves glute and upper hamstring pain and thereby helps improve your erg workout. This is the HIGH version – designed for athletes over 85kg. This model is most used by men, and mostly men above 85 kg because it is is higher and harder than the low ProW seat pad. It differs from conventional rowing seats in more ways: It has a ‘saddle’/projection in the middle and the holes are elliptical to create optimal pressure distribution from your pelvis. Further, the ProW has an opening for your tailbone and a projection at the back which helps to improve your technique. The projection simply makes it easier to sit up at the finish and transition from stroke to recovery phase. Designed by Danish lightweight international rowers it is recommended mainly for use on top of a regular Concept2 rowing seat. But it can also be taped to a seat in the boat using double sided adhesive tape (supplied). Manufacturer recommends allowing 3-5 training sessions to adapt and learn to use the seat. It reshapes to suit your body shape by 10-20% over time with frequent use. The material is smooth when new and the top surface rubs off with use making the seat non-slip. There is tape on the back of the seat for you to glue to the C2 which will help fix the seat until the surface material is fully rubbed off.

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.

Slowly but don't call me Shirley
Missed a couple more days and only got in 11,275 meters just now, around midnight (so it's noted as happening on December 9th, Wednesday).

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. And, of course, there is also the incredibly-useful book, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better, by Dustin Ordway, which also suggests consistent, persistent, daily exercise with a twist: there's no such thing as too slow as long as you do it every day.
