Rowed my first marathon (Read 97 times)

    I have been struggling with PF for 18 months so I have not been able to run. After not being as active as I should last year (consistently), I picked up indoor rowing in January. In February I got a Concept2 rower at home. In March I rowed at least 10K for 25 days of the month as part of an online challenge. But this is the best - I ended my "marathon virginity" by rowing my first marathon on Friday. Smile

     

     

     

     

     

     


    In it for the long run..

      Congratulations!  How long did it take?  I can't even imagine doing that.

        I am slow and took liberal breaks, so it took me 4 hr 6 min.

                Pretty sore. I am fairly new to rowing. However, I was able to mow the yard the next day (ouch!) so it could have been tons worse. Everything hurt. I don't think a single spot was left unscathed.
