I have been rowing for about fifteen years. I have spent most of my time in a single or double scull, which requires a lot of balance and patience to learn. I see the kids out on the water keeping their boats beautifully straight and level and wish that I had had the opportunity to learn at that age.
Still, what I lack in finesse, I make up for with power… I am still one of the top ergo rowers in the club. We have Concept2 model Ds in the boathouse as do all the clubs I know. The reason is the accuracy of the monitor, the consistency of the stroke and the durability of the machine. The challenge of beating your last 2000m time is one that I always relish but dread at the same time. It doesn’t matter how fit I get, it still hurts as much as my first attempt!
