Today I did a 1-hour session (12,6Km) on the Concept 2 indoor rower. This brings me to a total of 500,000 Lifetime Meters (500 Km to-date). Rowing is a full body workout and it is a most enjoyable activity.
I would like to thank everyone who have motivated me. There is a huge list of names of people who have had a positive influence in my life (the list would fill-up a book) but here I am specifically focusing on rowing:
Andrew Gibb, my ex on water rowing Partner. It was great fun doubling with Andrew – many memorable rows doubling with Andrew at Victoria Lake, Germiston (Johannesburg).
Andrew has a sharp mind, an extensive knowledge of rowing both on water rowing as well as the ergo. I got many useful tips from Andrew.
Daniel Kendall – my indoor rowing Training Partner. You won’t find a better coach and rowing Partner. Daniel has 12,5 million meters under his belt and counting… Daniel lives in Royal Oak, Michigan USA and I am in Johannesburg – the marvel of the internet! I have learnt a great deal w.r.t. Concept 2 indoor rowing from Daniel.
Just to keep things in perspective: I am happy with my 12,5 Km session on Sundays… Daniel does a 15-20 Km session every day!!! Wow!
Jonny Wignall – a Strava buddy. Jonny lives in Leyland, UK. He runs, cycles and rows… every single day! You won’t find a fitter person!
Sue Bradley-Donaldson – Sue re-introduced me to on water rowing. She is an experienced rower and both her husband and daughter are very good rowers. Thanks Sue, I certainly enjoyed rowing with you.
To end this post: today I did a 12,67 Km indoor rowing followed by a 50 Km wattbike ride. Feeling fit…
