I'll stop being a pest and updating this every time i have a row now...
Barely one month into CF, and had my first interval row WOD today. Four cracks at 500m, first time I've ever tried an all out 500m. While anything would technically be a PR, I'm pretty pleased, hit 1:36.8 on my second run, which actually ranks north of the median for the current season C2 rankings. Weirdly, it actually ranks lower among heavyweight 40-49 men (about 60th percentile) than it does against all men (about 65th percentile).....but that's just the numbers nerd in me, I'm happy regardless.

Re: 500m row times

For those of you wanting to improve rowing whilst hitting some cf metcons. Check out:

http://renegaderowing.com/blog/

It is set up on the following layout:
Monday - long intervals
Tuesday - short intervals
Wednesday - metcon involving rowing
Thursday - off
Friday - metcon involving rowing

Re: 500m row times

Does a 500m time count if you don't start from a dead stop? Is that what all these times are?

Also, does the PM3 display the "best" 500m in a given distance? (e.g., if my 200m to 700m contained my fastest 500m time.) Or does the display only show the best 500m time from a standstill?

You set the rower on workout of 500 Meter descending and it starts as soon as the handles are pulled.

That's what I did, but it said my average 500m pace was about 1:33, but my actual time was 1:27.1. Is that because I technically rowed further than 500m, so it may have taken the time from, say, 20m to 520m? (which was probably quicker than the 0m to 500m)

I think avg pace is your avg for that split. If you set 500 -> 0 I would count it.

Re: 500m row times

Are you guys keeping track of the stroke rate over the 500m?

I mean time is one thing but being efficient also makes a difference.

I can do 500m in 1:50 with a stroke rate of 22/min and talk to my friends at the same time.

I did a 1:38 with a stoke rate of 30/min without breaking my back....

If you have a really bad stroke rate then you know it is easier to improve your time with better technique... simple

I am 44 and weigh 220lbs

So it would be interesting to know...

My stroke rate is bad generally, because I think C2 says optimal I around 26. I think I'm over 36 most of the time. Yes anything near 2:00 is chill mode. I want to buy a rower badly to work on that spm.
