Romantic Robot Working on it.

I did 10K !

Filed under: Fitness — 22:54 Mon 2 May 05

47 minutes, 23 seconds and I completed 10,000m on the rowing machine.
Resistance level 4, average 500m split time of 2 minutes 22.15 seconds.
Okay so it’s a bit slow – it felt slow at time but my first 2000m were about the 2:10 point which I knew I could struggle to keep up with so better to slow down a wee bit. I forgot the bottle I normally take so had to slow to a virtual stop twice to drink so that time can be reduced some. But the point was to actually DO IT. And I did.
Target ? To drop that time I think, but rather than hammer away at it, I’ll work at 5000 and on some fast short bursts. And the muscles that hurt the most were the butt muscles. They ached.
