I tried to row 2000 meters in 7 minutes today. I fell just short at 7:03:5. Not a huge disappointment as this was my first attempt but it still would have been nice to crack it.
I am not even sure that7 minutes is a good time for this, I know 7:03:5 seemed pretty tough to me though. I guess I am just wondering how other's c/f'ers have made out with similar challenges in the past. Also, what is a good time for a 2000m row?

Brad:

Go to: http://www.concept2.com/sranking03/rankings.asp

and enter your age and weight . . . they'll tell you how good you are . . .

If *I* had rowed that (I don't think I could) it would be the 28th best in the world this year . . . (best is 6:25.8 in my gender/age/weight group)

Cool link, Dave. I don't know whether to be inspired or depressed.

For the 10k row (using the recent Row 10k WOD for my time), the top dude rowed 32 minutes and change (for age 30-39, lightweight male). I would've been in the bottom 25% with my 43-minute time.

A lot of room for improvement!

Mike

Great site.Thanks.
My time would put me in the 50th -75th percentile for the 2000 according to the ranking scheme. I am way down in the 25th percentile for the 10k as well at around 42mins . Gives me something to shoot for.

I didn't bother to think about it when I posted earlier, but 7:00 for 2,000 is 4 consecutive 1:45 500's . . . pretty darn good. (One of those isn't too bad, but 4 consecutive?)

I *know* couldn't do that . . . I'd be working mighty hard to get 4 consecutive 1:55 500's ... or 7:40.

So, nice work Brad, regardless of where it places you . . . sure kicks my butt!

I pulled a sub seven this winter. Tossed my body into a snow bank on the side of the driveway. Not a voluntary response. My nervous system was roasted.

I pounded the data into the C2 log. When distilled for age, state, zip code and street I ranked #1.

As they say on the WOD posting. It was #3 WOD, #1 was feeding the Airedales. #2 Was a Vitamix smoothie.

IT'S TORTURE BUT IT WORKS!

I'm going to be at a fitness expo this weekend and while we were setting up I saw that Concept has a stand there.

Since I'll be away from the gym for 3 days i might try to do a 2000m row at their stand and see how many people watch :-)

I'm also going to try and borrow a barbell and chinup bar from one of the equipment stands so I can do Fat fran today

Don:

Absolutely awesome! Doing Fran in that public setting will possibly get you thrown out, but both you and they will remember it for a long time!

I heartily support going for it (we'll take up a collection for your bail money :biggrin:. . . . what's the conversion rate these days?)

Seriously, my best time ever on Fran (by two minutes or so) was at the Colorado CrossFit seminar last November . . . nothing like a LOT of people watching to get you going.
