Concept2 has a whole series of satellite indoor rowing races around the U.S. all held on Saturday, February 2nd…and there is one right here in Alexandria, VA at TC Williams!
These races are open to everyone, no qualifying time needed (however, some participates will be competing to hit the qualifying time for the World Indoor Rowing Championships in Boston). I have heard it’s a really cool event with a lot of positive energy…athletes of all levels and ages compete to pull their best 2,000 meter effort.
Let’s form a team and enter!
Now believe you me, rowing 2k is not my idea of a “good time”, neither is running a 5k for a personal record. I prefer speed and power but we are only as fit as our weakest link! A hard 2k row is over with in 7-10 minutes, this will be some great CrossFit training! The race is far enough away to get some practice in but close enough to not over think it.
