Friday Musings - Folly
A good conscience is a continual Christmas. ~Benjamin Franklin
To row or not to row.
5000m a day seems like quite a bit of volume over these last 9 days.
Is it a good idea? How am I feeling about it? Why am I doing it?
Well, yes, it is a good idea and I am in.
9 days left and I am feeling good about it. Not in love with it at times honestly, but the purpose is threefold:
- Encourage - Show others that there is worth in exploring the benefits of rowing. From warming up to the work out to cooling down. The body benefits from rowing.
- Learn - Become a more proficient rower myself. and
- Give - Donate with sweat equity, not just writing a check but action, the Concept 2 Holiday Challenge. Every year I like to make a donation to a charitable cause. In CrossFit we do hero workouts to honor the courage, effort and sacrifice that our warriors have given. This offers the chance for both however my level of effort will reflect the donation amount.
I have certainly learned a lot about my threshold, speed, power, control. Now finish the meters, rest between Christmas and the New Year and use those transferable skills ;)
