The Row Machine

You would not think rowing for 2 minute would be so difficult even when you have to do it 3 times. That is only 6 minutes. But try it. I don’t mean sliding up and down the base tugging on the rope. I mean really pushing your speed. Ugh!  Last time we did this my first 500 meters took only 1:46 but the next one was 2:30 and the third one was about 2:45. This time I wanted them all under 2:00 so I kept it a little more steady.

Last week we rowed 2000 meters. Andy did this in about 6:55!!!:

    Man I still feel the pain from that day, by the way it was just under 7 minutes 6:55 to be exact, one of my breakthrough days as a cross fitter.

    Oh yeah! Sheesh! I totally shorted you. I am not sure why I wrote 7:30 that would be more like a goal over the long term for myself. Heh. Correcting it…
