I have a question. I can't run right now, so I'm rowing. Is there any way to translate rowing times to something close enough of running? For example my goal is 10k in 43 minutes, what time on the C2 rower would be of similar effort/wattage outpot?

S&C: 15 min handstand (it took appr 47 minutes...)

R-- do the posted rowing wods. There is alot of transfer and it will improve your running. Rowing will light up weaknesses you didn't know you had. The important factor is having good technique when rowing. Rowing when done correctly will give a solid blast of cardio work, works the midline, lower back, and develops flexibility in the hamstrings and calves.
If rowing is new for you build into it just as you would with anything else. Start with the getting started wods in the Endurance FAQ.

quick WOD
Had to squeeze in a quick one before a wedding (beautiful day for one BTW here in STL).

I did Fran for the first time in a long while for shits. I went 75# (10# heavier than I've ever done it).

Finished in 5:53 A 3 MINUTE PR

Crazy the forearm and bicep pump you get from Fran. It's painful!

MCVi 10K Result
46:27 min. for the MCVi 10K this AM. Which is a 51 sec. PR from previous TT training runs. This was also good enough for 1st outta 7 in 30-34 age group and 5th overall (don't know how many, will post later). I would've been faster, but coming in traffic from the 5K walkers and "joggers" held me up because it was along a running path with no room to pass. I know lost a 1+ min. Except for that happy with performance.

Cadence work has paid off. Gonna do week 5 again this week because i only got it in once. I felt cadence slowing down around 4.5 miles, just need a little more work with it. Really getting use to asthma and finally getting back to normal after bronchitis most of summer.

Did the S&C recovery a little bit after race. Will hit Fri's S&C WOD and today's bike WOD tomorrow.
Sparty on!!

Can't do a handstand with broken fingers. I tried but body said no way. 15 min plank instead. 40 minutes on the bike trainer at high resistance, probably @13 miles... Feel pretty good. Glad fingers are starting to heal...

Have total fear of handstands, and have never managed to do one. DID, however, overcome that fear enough to do headstands. Worked on those for a long while (Didn't watch the clock, was up and down a lot), and then did some other skill work I haven't been able to get to this week.

I rowed 5k TT, 22:49. Not bad, but I could really feel it after this week of doing some heavy lifting (with PR's!!).

15 Min Handstand Walk: 16m

I am not very good at the balance yet. All my forward progress was really more of a controlled fall!!

Erin-- Carl Paoli has some excellent progressions on the Gymnastics Wod (linked on the right) for handstands and handstand push ups.
Great to hear you conquered your fear. Keep working with it.

Greetings! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!
