rowing substitute clarifications

Alright, home wod'er here. So all my Endurance days involve running, for equipment reasons (No pool, No Rower..limited to running). Well it's getting dark early and I work hours that make it that soon, when Day Light Savings kicks in that running will not be safe for me.

I've heard, that you can create a rowing like function by just a SDLHP with a lighter weight for an extended period of time.
I've also heard, that basically if you row for the same period of time that it would take you to run that same distance that you will get about = results.

Therefore my question is:
A- Is my logic Sound?
B- What weight would I use in the SDHP to get the closest results to using a rowing machine?
