    20 ks for charity

    just came up with the idea of rowing 20 kilometers on an ergo for charity as part of my Personal Best Achievement Project at school.

    The aim is to get the local news papaer involved and a few sponsors.

    Why Im doing this? The benefit would be huge for me, I could finally finish off the last of my fat reserves in my body, and gain insane fitness in the process.

    I will make the Headmaster quite a happy chap with the advertisement the school would get, wich means more money for rowing, so i get big new shiny boats when Im in the seniors.

    and oh yeah, money for a charity, Ill have to pick one...

    Currently I am doing 6kms
    Strarting 7th August I will complete 5 10km ergos weekly, for 2 weeks
    then I will rise up by 2 ks every week, until I reach 20.

    The big 20 will be done one the 27th of September, hope fully I could get a reporter there and a group of supporters, its gonna be very long and painful.

    Better get started...

    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    dude, i was on crew... we did 5ks on practice days and we did 10ks once a week.... rowing is hard but rewarding.... the only reason I quit was because the entire team was a buncha a$$holes, we weren't really a "team"

    but yea, good luck to ya... and make sure to get a comfortable seat for that 20k... 10ks make ur ass fall off alone....

    Good luck, man. Crew is tough... made me quit after a month. Too much rowing and not enough time for lifting.
