My row starts in 86 days. It will last 50 days. Maybe more, maybe less. I will need to train hard leading up to my expected launch date of May 1, 2017 to be ready. I've been training on my Concept 2 erg these last few months, averaging about 8-10 hours per week. I need to find more time to build up to 16 hours, then 20 hours for the next 2 1/2 months backing down to another 12 hours the two weeks leading up to my departure.
