I am trying to create an incentive schedule for my rowing efforts. A few years ago I had to lose a lot of weight after college. I didn't gain the Freshmen 15. I gained the College 50 . Ick! Well, I was able to lose 40 lbs. of those 50. Chris and I developed an incentive system whereby I got something once I achieved a quarter of the way to my goal. That would be 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%. I obviously never got the 100% treat. Oh well! So, I am looking at doing the same thing for my rowing. I am already at about 238,000 meters. I am going to plan this for every 100,000 increment until I hit 1 Million meters. The first cool thing will be at 300,000. I don't know what that will be. I have to put something together and get it "approved" by Chris before I can implement. Once I have it going I will post it here. I am rowing my way to better fitness. I'm telling you, indoor rowing is the way to go. It is the best full body workout you can get in the time you spend on it. Wow! Try it out sometime.
