How do you like the skier and how does it compare to rowing in your view? I assume by its look that it’s more challenging?

I like it. I had never skied before, but after tearing my Achilles I needed to have cardio, and I could sit while using the skierg.
It uses some other muscles, so I like that.
Sitting, however, is much easier than standing. :) So, while I did longer skis before while sitting, I am now able to stand, and doing the half while standing, and doing it after work, rather than a Sunday afternoon. made it quite a challenge.

No home project is without unexpected surprises, right?! The window replacement one is no different! Having large openings open next to a tree with bird feeders for a few hours while installers were out lookng for a piece of siding...lordy. Murphy the cat would've hunted the birds down...but who needs a day with Discovery Channel?!

A quick note to Miss Anthropy

Post by Kona2 » May 9th, 2024, 11:04 am

I see a Miss Anthropy on the team stats macro, and the carrot is quite a few meters...enough meters for me to be concerned that Miss Anthropy is tied to an erg and can only be released when s/he hits a million meters before the sun sets on a given day in May. We welcome new team members, even those who might be people-averse, but Moldova as a location, choosing a musical that's more bound to New Zealand, and a whopping pile of meters...well I gotta ask about reality vs creation. Please advise and tell us more.
