When I went to program my first workout on the new rower the other day I realized it didn’t have the option for setting an Undefined rest period like my Ski Erg and the rowers at the gym. Turned out the firmware on this PM3 monitor was 7 versions old. It was easy to upgrade using a free utility provided by Concept2. The hardest part was finding an old USB cable for connecting the monitor, but luckily I have some for Arduino boards.
Here’s the latest in what is now a yearly screenshot of my home screen.
I’d previously posted in 2017, 2016, and 2010. I decided not to upgrade to the iPhone XS this year, so I have the same phone. The biggest changes are I’m back to a single page and I’ve filled the last space with the Tesla app.
I drove up to Rogers City for the weekend to work on the charging situation before it gets too cold outside. Last night I plugged into a standard outlet (NEMA 5-15), which should only be able to charge at a speed of 3-4 miles of range per hour, according to Tesla’s home charging documentation. Somehow I was getting 5, which is still really slow.
I brought wire and a new NEMA 6-20 outlet with me, which is the same thing I have in my garage. So this morning we ran a line and installed the outlet. The box in my parents’ garage already had a free 240 volt 20 amp breaker, which made installation a breeze. It took 20-30 minutes for the charge speed to ramp up, which could be due to the colder weather, but I’m getting the same 14 miles/hour I get at home. Much better!
