Well its now official I can row 5K or 5000m as known to the rowing people in almost 3 minutes faster than I can run 5K. 31:28 running time, 28:41 rowing. Who would have believed that!!s OK I know it was flat calm, no ups no downs, no waves, no currents to contend with. I have to say I'm well chuffed with that time, its hard, its boring and quite difficult to keep up the pace especially if your mind starts to wonder as mine does when bored. its quite a poor substitute for my running which I'm passionate about but for now it will keep me active.
Challenge for the future sub 28 minutes I think
Sorry its side ways on, I can assure you I had not collapsed
