An hour row! Whew, that's a lot of work. Impressive.

Well an hour is one of the workouts for which the Concept II website maintains a competition. So it is fun to see how I'm doing compared with the other 70-79's around the world. In this case, not so well: my 12 061m put me 51st of 68 guys in that age group. And I would have had to row 112m more in that hour to move up one place, to 50th!

Yes. And the idea of an hour row was just too formidable to attempt last year; haven't done an hour since January 2017!

The rowing season ends April 30. So for the next month, my objective will be to clean up some of my PR times for shorter distances this season: a 4-minute row for instance, where I'm currently down in the 18th percentile in my age group.
