Today’s CrossFit Rowing WOD looks awesome. This is exactly what you need to build up to a great 1k or 2k. You are going to be looking for pace and consistency. Set the splits for 250 and go.

I tried to go for a PR in the 500 a few weeks ago and totally sucked. My pace was bad and the start totally doomed me to failure. My PR is still 1:33 and has been gathering dust since January. I was feeling a little depressed about it since I should be able to at least nudge up close to my best without dying a miserable death on the erg.

On Wednesday, the Tulsa WOD was 4 x 400 running with 3:00 rest. I sat down on the erg to row a 4 x 500 and I ended up being very excited about my times; 1:34, 1:38, 1:38, and 1:42. I did hit 176 on my heartrate monitor on round 3, so I really couldn’t sprint to the finish, but overall I couldn’t be happier. PR should ensue.
