Rowing Plan

My Model D has finally arrived and I set it up.

I have it in my apartment and am looking to use it pretty much every morning or every night before bed on morning's I don't do PT or have an metcon wod.

What would be a good rowing setup for me? I don't run much so i am going to supplement the rower for most of the running that isn't wod related.

I want to get in a 10K and a few 5K's a week and a few HIIT cycles(6 500m for time or something). Is there any kind of rotation any of you guy's use?

I'm looking to increase my cardio endurance, on top of increase cardio for WODS.

Visit the C2 Website, check out their massive(love using that term) database of workouts along with the fact of getting your own Weblog and rank yourself with others around the world.
That is the place to talk rowing workouts, form, etc.

Re: Rowing Plan

Do a search for The Pete Plan which is a good basic training program that seems to be well regarded in C2 land.

Re: Rowing Plan

Most of the time I row a fixed distance, but that started to get boring. A few weeks ago I was playing with the PM3 monitor and found a cool workout that rowed four distances (2000m, 1500m, 1000m, 500m) with a rest between each (cannot recall the rest time). Anyway, I really enjoyed it and it seems to breakup the boring 5000m row.
