Back on the Erg Again

Dec 16, 2011

You know how, during the holidays, you find yourself reverting back to childhood family dynamics with your family? Your sister steals the bathroom, your mom starts nagging, and your parents inquire about your whereabouts as if you have a curfew again. Well, for ex-collegiate rowers, the Concept2 Holiday Challenge can feel like a similar homecoming with the indoor rower. It is familiar, annoying, and loving all at the same time. Continue Reading ›

2011 C.R.A.S.H.-B. Sprints Report

As a nor’easter pelts snow, sleet and rain upon our windows here in Vermont, the indoor rower looks more and more appealing as an alternative workout today from the usual swim, bike or run. As a triathlete, I do my best to workout outdoors under all conditions. I have an impressive collection of fleece-lined spandex, warm woolly hats and windproof jackets to help make this happen. But some days (like today) the most effective workout is going to be indoors. Continue Reading ›
