I started “erging” eighteen years ago with my friend Don as a way of warming up before lifting weights. I am currently “erging” with my friends John “The Erginator” and Bill “Holiday Challenge." We discuss technique and how to mentally get through a workout (oh the pain). I “erg” an average of 7K/day five days per week with a personal best of 7:14.5 for 2K (heavyweight). My goal by year end is to break 3 million meters and 7:00 for 2k.
