subbing rowing for running?

i train at a gym and running on treadmills is fairly rubbish due to getting it fast and having to adjust the speed etc.
is there a way to calculate an appropriate amount of rowing to replace the 800m running for michael?
i'll be doing this tomorrow, please help!

I'm not sure how "official" it is, but if it's a 400m run, I'll do a 500m row. So for Michael, double that and row 1,000m each round.

Better you than me on that one.

Re: subbing rowing for running?

the fact that it is harder is my concern, this will be my second WOD so i may aim for half (500m row, 25 sit ups, 25 back extensions repeat 3 times) or tomorrow i'll be in total agony, even if i manage the full WOD...
which is doubtful

Second WOD (and first time with Michael)... scaling sounds like a fantastic idea. Have fun!
