Ok, I'll bite. Why 21,097 meters?

Comment #2 - Posted by: Johnny C at July 23, 2013 5:13 PM

Rowed 5k today just to see how terrible this in going to be. 22min even at a nice easy pace. Half marathon is gunna be BRUTAL. Im calling Matt Chan wins the full event and AJ Barto wins the 2K sprint

Comment #3 - Posted by: Joe-fiT at July 23, 2013 5:18 PM

Have fun doing the SDHP subs for this one!

@Cliff K, your half marathon row time is :14 faster than my half marathon road race PR (aka running). High fives!

Comment #6 - Posted by: Glorybelle (F/44/5'5/134) at July 23, 2013 5:28 PM

Rowed 2k last Friday - 6:41.

i think khalipa wins the 2k

Comment #8 - Posted by: joe at July 23, 2013 5:33 PM

@johnny c, its one of the posted games events and it is a half marathon and over an hour of hell on your whole body. if you do this you will be ~fried~

Half marathon row

Comment #11 - Posted by: Jimmy at July 23, 2013 5:37 PM

Um--pretty sure I'm not subbing the SDHP for this one. I'll do the 2K=200 SDHP's and post my time for that.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Mike Andridge at July 23, 2013 5:44 PM

@Swick and Cliff, nice times! I will be nowhere near that. I'm really bad at rowing.

Are you guys going to try to best those times? Are those PRs or just your most recent 1/2M times?

Comment #13 - Posted by: Gavin at July 23, 2013 5:44 PM

Hi guys! I will be rowing with weights. How do I know how far I've gone? ie. How many rows to a kilometre?

Comment #14 - Posted by: Oke at July 23, 2013 5:51 PM

Is this run a 2k

Comment #15 - Posted by: Justin at July 23, 2013 5:55 PM

@Gavin, Thanks and the 2K was not a PR and I have actually never rowed over 5k, so it was a learning experience. Just pace yourself....But after doing that one it will be a while before I go back after that.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Cliff K at July 23, 2013 6:03 PM

Justin, row 21,097 meters, but make note of the time for the first 2k. Post that and your total time.

@Oke, there aren't any appropriate subs for this. In general most of us will be around 25 strokes/minute and it will take us 100 minutes. 2,500 rows with dumbells would be ridiculous. Same for SDHP and everything else.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Gavin at July 23, 2013 6:06 PM

How repetitions is the half marathon equivalent to? My gym's rower has no display. Thanks

Comment #18 - Posted by: Josh at July 23, 2013 6:08 PM

#18 It is about 125 strokes per 1000 meters so about 2637 strokes for a half marathon

Comment #19 - Posted by: Brad Evers at July 23, 2013 6:14 PM

@Cliff, honest question. I've never done more than 5k either. Can I attempt this or will I be asking for rhabdo or other serious complications?

Maybe I should scale to 10,500 m? I'm guessing that most of us have never done more than 5k in a sitting.

Comment #20 - Posted by: Gavin at July 23, 2013 6:21 PM

How much weight should I use in a machine in order to do this workout? I'm new to Crossfit :P
Thanks!

Comment #21 - Posted by: Javier Lorenzini at July 23, 2013 6:32 PM

no way!!

Comment #22 - Posted by: hannah campanile at July 23, 2013 6:43 PM

Most I've done on the rower was a 10K. Took about 42 minutes. Looking forward to the challenge! Thanks HQ.

Comment #23 - Posted by: Kurt M/39/185 at July 23, 2013 6:43 PM

@Gavin I would just take a personal inventory, I know that I have been training hard and I was confident that my training would carry me through this one. I also made a point to pace myself from the get go and did not try to go for a blazing time on the 2k like the games athletes will.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Cliff K at July 23, 2013 6:59 PM

I'll attempt this on the weekend, but not yet sure if I'll do the entire distance or scale.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Glorybelle (F/44/5'5/134) at July 23, 2013 7:17 PM

Why? My ass is gonna fall of at 5000 meters.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Adam at July 23, 2013 7:28 PM

Great workout! Looking forward to it, but no way I can do a workout this long during the week. Wish HQ had programmed it over the weekend.

Comment #27 - Posted by: Jim R./M/50/5'8"/160 at July 23, 2013 8:24 PM

First time I've rowed over 5k in months.
2k- 9:45
21,097- 1:57:46
The first 10k is not great but it's the rest of it when you just have to tough it out.

Comment #28 - Posted by: Hoss1020 at July 23, 2013 9:26 PM

2k: 8:45
21,079k: 1:49:56.

I did it! My wife and kids thought I was nuts, and my time is terrible, but I did it just to prove to myself that I could do it.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Gavin at July 23, 2013 9:36 PM

You're not supposed to row a half marathon. It says row 21,097 meters, which is equivalent to 2,1097 kilometers.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Camilla at July 23, 2013 10:37 PM

It's crazy awesome. This could be the biggest bonk ever for someone. I.e. Jason Khalipa. I vow to find a rower and do this workout in my new garage.

Comment #31 - Posted by: BTS at July 23, 2013 10:40 PM

@Camilla, your conversions are a little wonky (confusing if you grew up with miles for sure) 1000m = 1km, so 21,097m is just short of 21.1km, a half marathon.

In terms of subs if you don't have a rower, I would say probably best to run or bike a half marathon. Thoughts guys?

Comment #32 - Posted by: Rhys at July 23, 2013 10:47 PM

They kinda messes up with the metric system 21,000 m is equal to 21 km.

Comment #33 - Posted by: gee at July 23, 2013 11:01 PM

2k in 8.25
21.97 in 1.39.48
Feel...odd ?

Comment #34 - Posted by: Dan Thomas at July 23, 2013 11:39 PM

Comment #35 - Posted by: DavisLV at July 24, 2013 12:43 AM

Actually did this at the weekend - 1.24.39.
Never thought to record the 2k time but I'm guessing at around 8.00. I rowed at a steady 2.00/500m plus a couple of drinks stops

Oh man... This is gonna suck.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Ally McInally at July 24, 2013 2:06 AM

What damper setting should I use? Typically our box sets it to 6.

Comment #38 - Posted by: Neal at July 24, 2013 2:34 AM

@Camilia

Wrong, 1000 meters = 1Km so 21,097 meters is 21.097Km...

Comment #39 - Posted by: Sebastien at July 24, 2013 2:36 AM

We have no Row...
What can we do to sobstitute?
Tks

Comment #40 - Posted by: Bobo at July 24, 2013 2:43 AM

@Bobo - Just do 2,110 sumo deadlift high pulls. No biggie right? :)

Comment #48 - Posted by: brunwald79 at July 24, 2013 4:29 AM

If you don't get the first 2K time, you can take the 500 pace and multiply it by 4 to get the average 2K time. With a PM3, you might be able to lookup the 500 meter splits, so you can add the first 4 actual splits to get the first 2K time.

Comment #49 - Posted by: swdhj at July 24, 2013 5:19 AM

Scaled to 5k due to time restraints and short attention sp

2k = 7:54
5k = 20:24 (pr by 0:56 over 121208)

Comment #50 - Posted by: Joe Northside m/34/70"/195 at July 24, 2013 5:27 AM

There are 10 different levels of workload on the row-machine, which one should i use?
Gonna try this today and i've never rowed longer distance then 1000m before, it's gonna be tough - most physically..

Comment #51 - Posted by: MG at July 24, 2013 5:59 AM

2k: 4.26
21.097 : 47 mins 41 sec

Going to bed. Noone will hear from me for the rest of the day...

Comment #52 - Posted by: Iván at July 24, 2013 6:00 AM

Just a thought about a 2k test within a half-marathon row:

I row at a 120 damper when I row a 2k or shorter piece. Longer than 2k and I drop down to 110. The reason is that the heavier damper setting is much more taxing; I made the mistake of rowing for 10:00 with a 120 damper at 1:58 pace (much slower than my 2k pace) and my lower back was sore for 2 days. My point is - I think athletes (and games officials) need to consider the need to switch damper settings between the 2k and the half-marathon, because I wouldn't row a 2k test piece at my half-marathon damper setting, and keeping the damper at a 2k setting and then rowing 80+ minutes is dangerous, even for these great athletes.

I would give them a 5 minute break to switch the damper setting and then resume the half-marathon.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Husker at July 24, 2013 6:02 AM

Ivan, I'm fairly certain that you did something wrong...

Comment #54 - Posted by: Ben at July 24, 2013 6:15 AM

Hey Guys,

Damper setting should be between 3-4. That's equivalent of what rowing feels like on the water.

Comment #55 - Posted by: Sam at July 24, 2013 6:15 AM

2km- 11:23
Half marathon - 1:54:57

Kept the first 2k paced since I've never rowed further than that

Comment #56 - Posted by: Jesse at July 24, 2013 6:33 AM

I don't think Ivan knows what minutes are. Or maybe those are his split times.

Comment #57 - Posted by: Lance at July 24, 2013 6:43 AM

2k: 1.5
21,097: 45 flat

Just kidding I saw the times it was taking people to complete and realized I wouldn't have time before work to do this so I'll do it after....I'm not Ivan the wonder rower btw.

Comment #58 - Posted by: JoeyT Rochester at July 24, 2013 6:53 AM

I'll do the half this weekend. For today:
AMRAP 12 min w/ 75#
4 shoulder press
8 SDHP
12 front squat
6 rounds + 4 press
Then 4 rounds 5 shoulder press + 10 Pullups
75-80-85-90

Comment #59 - Posted by: Jim R./M/50/5'8"/160 at July 24, 2013 6:53 AM

@kizza, #42, yeah, body felt so strange I couldn't type. And I obviously didn't row 21,097 kilometers like I said either. :)

Comment #60 - Posted by: Gavin at July 24, 2013 6:58 AM

Ok,I can do 2110 sumo deadlift high pulls!

Congrats to Ivan on destroying the world record!

Comment #63 - Posted by: darthbob at July 24, 2013 7:29 AM

@MG re: damper setting -

Go for between 2 and 4. The 1-10 scale is NOT equivalent to a difficulty scale; it correlates instead with weight, rowing experience, rowing ability, and rowing distance. Elite (college and national) male rowers set there's between 3 and 5 for 2k tests. For a half-marathon row, go for a damper setting around 100 (go to more options - display damper setting and row 6-8 strokes and adjust the lever on the side as needed).

Comment #64 - Posted by: Husker at July 24, 2013 8:05 AM

2k = 7:40
21097 = 1:32:12

Hated every kilometre but loved the feeling of completing it!

5x5 muscle up progressions black band move to red next week
4x4 strict hspu hands 30 inches from wall
5x7 Kipping hspu
Gonna have a party when I can do real hspu

Comment #66 - Posted by: D.S. at July 24, 2013 8:09 AM

Well, considering the best time on the concept2 website is 1:15:05, I think that 45 minutes might be a bit of a stretch. But getting a time of 1:22 would put you in the 90th percentile.

As 10km is the furthest that I've rowed, I'm slightly worried about doubling the distance, but I'll see if I can give this a go soon.

Comment #67 - Posted by: brad at July 24, 2013 8:10 AM

2K = 10:00
21097 = 1:49:20

Should have done the 2K faster but was pacing myself for the entire thing. Next time I will do better on the 2K

scaled to 10k (43:49)
2k: 8:00

Congrats to all those that completed the whole thing.

Comment #71 - Posted by: mlt at July 24, 2013 8:34 AM

To all concerned about rower damper settings...there's no right answer to that question. The Concept 2 instruction manual gives some recommendations for selecting a setting. For me it was a little above 5.

After the sprint triathlon last week, glad to see CF isn't ignoring the endurance aspect of fitness, though weekends are better days for these long workouts. Am sure we'll get hammered w/ some high intensity, heavy lifting here shortly!

Comment #72 - Posted by: Jim R./50/5'8"/160 at July 24, 2013 8:39 AM

@Bobo, do NOT do 2,000+ sumo deadlift high pulls. They weren't met for high reps like that. That would be far more detrimental than beneficial.

Comment #73 - Posted by: Gavin at July 24, 2013 9:05 AM

@Ivan, you just SMASHED the world records for these events! Congratulations... .. .

Comment #92 - Posted by: Eric at July 24, 2013 11:38 AM

2k = 9:35 (~2:23/500m split) - not point burning out on a long distance row.
21,097m = 1:47:00 (~2:32/500m split)

5k = 24:25 (~2:26/500m split)
10k = 49:18 (~2:27/500m split)

Pretty consistent splits... was hoping to maintain +/- 2:30. Longest row prior to this was 5k. Wow!

Comment #94 - Posted by: The Beez at July 24, 2013 12:10 PM

@Gavin - Thanks First time doing it, ill def. try again, in a few months. IVe never rowed over 2k never ran over 2 miles at once. I dont do any cardio besides what is RX'd for the gym. I just wanted to finish. I should have pushed a few more strokes each round. Notes- have plenty of water and a few towels.

1/4 marathon (10550m) 46:16 (2k @8:24)

Started to wonder how the play date with the 5 year olds was doing... and then managed to convince myself that I was a bad mom to just leave them up to their own devices while I sweated in the garage... and then decided that a 1/4 marathon was just fine.

Even though I did row for several years, I was lucky enough to live in an area of Canada where we spent most of our time on the water... not on the rower. I find it mind numbing.

Curtisv, I alternated between 3 and 8.

8 let me keep my stroke rate much lower (22), while 3 was a lighter pull but had me at 30 strokes to keep the pace I wanted.

Concept 2 - more options - check drag . I've never rowed over 5 k and damper was always set at 10. After reading about setting damper I kept checking drag til it hit 110 which equaled 4 on the damper. Hydrating every 2k, headphones cranking wearing shades with my eyes closed sucking air. Glad that's under my belt. Got ice? Ha!

Subbed SDHP & set time limits. If I did not reach X# in X time I would call it.

2K = 200 - 11:11 I can go faster but paced myself instead. Good or Bad it is what it is.

750 - 54:34 and called it.

Gave myself an hour to reach 1000. No major pain or soreness afterwards but I did get a small blister near the tip of my middle finger left hand. I actually concentrated on maintaining a straight back and an explosive hip extension for the duration.

2K - made a mental note, but had completely forgotten it by the time I finished.

21K in 1:23:00

Took a couple of 30 second breaks to walk around, stretch the back, and drink water. Lowered damper from 10 to 6 around halfway through.

I was wrecked at the end, but felt pretty good within a couple of hours. Actually thought about giving up around the 10K mark. So glad that I stuck it out.

2k: I'm not positive on the exact time, but my estimation is 6-6:30

21,097 M: 1:24:16

Time doesn't include when I had to get up at the 12k mark and walk around, due to my glutes falling asleep and an unusual pain directly above my right knee. I probably took 45-60 sec to walk around and stretch to get feeling back before hopping back on to finish the final 9+K.

*Note to future self in the event I ever do this again* don't come out so hard on the first 10K the last 45 min was brutal
