tumblr_nact8hjz7w1ses2sbo1_500[1]Once again I started the day with intentions of putting in a running session but due to some soreness once again in intimate areas I rerouted my cardio session on to the rower instead.

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.
