What with one thing and another, many of us are stuck at home for the forseeable future – and many on the water rowing events have been cancelled.
So along side the usual monthly challenges (check out http://indoorrowinginfo.com/this-months-challenges/) The online community has come together to create various challenges for people stuck at home – but with an rowing machine (usually a Concept2 is needed)
Here is a list of the various new challenges I’ve found so far. This post will be updated to reflect any new challenges released:
RowBattles – This is being run in conjunction with the Ergzone app. Check out https://www.facebook.com/ErgZone/ for more info
Concept2 Spring VIII Series – Starts April 6th – 5 challenges over the next 5 weeks with virtual boats containing 8 people.
Concept2 April Fools Challenge – Begins on April 1st, so get on it!
Dark Horse with Throwdowns – a free, totally virtual, 4-week competition series. You can do all 4 weeks, or compete 1 week, skip the next, then jump I for weeks 3 & 4… or however you want to do it! The goal is to give you something fun to do with your time and offer up something a little different if you want some motivation.
Ludlom – Needs the Float app to take part
#Rame chez toi – Run through FFAviron – the 7 Capitals Challenge
#OCDChallenge from LutonLagerLout on Instagram. Load up a row, set it to 8 indentical durations. Row the same stroke rate, and hit the same distance on each interval (ie. 8 x 1000 at 20spm / 2:00 in 4 minute intervals). The screenshot needs to add up (sometimes, it’ll hit 7999 or 8001 for the above example – and they don’t count). Tag uploads of your screenshot to Instagram with #rowforpurpose #rowformentalhealth
It goes without saying – take it sensibly. Don’t do anything that you feel may impair your immune system and leave you open to infection. Stay strong.
Keep on keeping on.
