Half-Erg-Marathon

21,097 meters in 1 hour and 25 minutes. Lordy. That’s the longest I’ve ever sat on an ergometer in my life. I celebrated by cooking a massive meal of braised beef short ribs and garlic/blue cheese mashed potatoes courtesy of my new Balzathar cookbook. Heck, I burned 1350 calories according to the machine, so Saturday was eat like a pig day.

I’m 81st in the world of 40-49 year old heavyweight men, in the 30th percentile. So, there is plenty of room for improvement.

I’m still suffering, and did a mere 10K this morning to “recover.”  183,579 meters logged in the Holiday Challenge — one week to go to get to 200,000. Piece of cake — then I transition into the Union Boat Club challenge which runs from Dec. 7 to the end of the year. Major competition from that crew.
