500m row

Rowing machines, the urgo, probably one of the most neglected pieces of cardio equipment in any woman’s gym.

I’ve heard wondrous tales of how rowing can transform ugly ducklings into speedy sleek swans so to decide to try it.

It’s really fun! It’s also really hard. The advice from everyone including the machine’s diagram is to push through the feet. 500m seems to last a long time…

I finish in


It’s not as bad as I thought it would be. I remember trying to row while still recovering from an injury and staying stuck at well over 3 minute along with a week of pain afterwards.

It makes me happy to know that I can now row (and move) without pain. Today it was 2.17, I’m going to see if I can improve on that for next month and eventually get in under the elusive 2 minutes!
