Sitting on a rower for 30 minutes is not exactly easy.
After 20 minutes, you’ve had enough.
After 25 minutes, you’re about to scream.
After 28 minutes, you convert minutes to seconds and just keep going.
Then try 10 minutes on the bike right afterwards.
I strained a muscle in my right arm again, so I’ve been doing no heavy weight. Today, I decided to row for 30 minutes and bike for 10 minutes for active recovery and because I felt like doing nothing else at the end of a long (and frustrating) week.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a 30 minute row. And, afterwards, I remember why.
Still, it strengthened my mental fortitude — something I need in CrossFit right now with the CrossFit Open right around the corner.
