    The Concept 2 website has a ton of useful info about rowing, including this:


    See how you stack up to other rowers around the world in your age/gender/bodyweight group.

    Also check out the link I posted above about the strategy for rowing a 2K:

    Hotel didn’t have rower.
    Ran 2K

  • Lisa

    Justin, I would rather run 2K too 😉

  • Laura

    Waitress :”Would you like a biscuit or roll?”
    Laura: “no bread thank you”
    Waitress: “but its free!”
    Laura: “that’s ok”
    Waitress: “but its free”

    This has been daily.

    • MC

      You wanna wash it down with some sweet tea, sugar?

    • Stay strong, Laura! 🙂

    Last night someone sprayed hairspray, or perhaps Axe Body Spray, in one of the back changing rooms and it was un-usable for at least 1/2 hr….along with the whole back hall.
    Rember boys, less is always more with smelly things!:)

      it smelled like cleaning solution… not sure it was axe… if it was axe all the women at the gym would have been jumping on the guy and rubbing him like in the commercials…

      i’m bringing axe into the gym tomorrow.

  • I was hoping to finish in less than 15 minutes…I guess yesterday’s wall balls didn’t set me back as much as I thought.

    7:47 🙂

    Have a great weekend everybody…

    • Andreas

      Sunday would also work fine.

      • Andreas, yes you can come in and be judged on WOD 11.5. (You’ll have to pay the $20 drop-in fee as you normally would need to.) Please come tomorrow during a scheduled class time (just not 10-11am when the free beginners’ class happens).

    Among the very useful info that Allison mentioned at the Concept 2 site is their VO2max calculator, which just happens to require your best 2k time. Mine is 37.84, slightly above average for my age and weight.
