I've been doing 500m intervals 1 day a week and today I went and rowed my first one pretty hard. I'm going to keep doing this and to keep motivation high as these things really suck, let's have a little competition.
Whoever wants to take part, find a C2 rower and row 500m for time. Use the computer on the machine and program it for a 500m go so it will stop exactly when you hit 500. I did not do this today. Post your times here, do it once or do it weekly but keep posting your times.
I did ~1:37 today and I have a bit more in me. It put me somewhere around #220 in ranking on the C2 website. #1 was 1:17. I want to get down to 1:30 within 8 weeks.
Good luck to all.
