Don’t get me wrong, I am digging rowing as an alternative to the endurance training I am accustomed to. However I really have been hoping to get my running routine back on track, slowly increasing my speed and distance. Instead I just keep getting sidelined again and again. Each time I resume it feels like starting from point zero.
I haven’t figured out if I am good at rowing or not. The few times I have been rowing at the same time as others my pace seems significantly faster and noone else has put in more than 5 minutes on the seat. Overall I was averaging right around 30 strokes a minutes with a 2:15-2:20 per 500 meter pace with the drag setting at a max of 10.
The only thing I wish is they had a tv set in an ergonomic position for the rowers to help make the time pass by a little easier. Instead my options are staring at the digital display, the traffic outside, or the tv mounted overhead that is locked on Fox News.
