Today was a row/ride brick. I notice if I want to keep my pace on the rower at or below 2:15 per 500 meters I need to pretty much exclusively stare at the little 4 inch by 4 inch display the entire time. If I look anywhere else I routinely will lose 10 meters off my pace, even though it feels like I am pulling the same. To stare at that little square for the majority of a 20 minute rowing session just is not much fun. It did however result in me pulling the furthest amount of distance in recent memory.
I backed it up with a serious 10 minutes on the stationary bike where I maintained 19+ virtual mph for the first 8 minutes and 20-22mph during the last 2.
