A lot faster than I can run
and realise people can probably row a lot faster than they can run. Ignore me.
'cos I'm ripped.
and realised that really muscle-bound blokes look like feckin pussies. Any bigger than Paul Newman in your prime and you ain't a real man, son.
5k in 22mins and then my arms wanna fall off.
do you have arms like trent reznor?
The current indoor record for 10000m is 33 mins. World record for 2000m is 5.36, equivalent to 28 mins assuming a constant pace (wouldn't happen).
I apologize if you happen to be a top class rower.
la gymnastique est au fond de la colline.
so not full power (my arms are a bit girly for that)
Because it still sounds like you must be world-class at rowing. Amazing.
just pulled the handle on the side down to a strength that didn't make my wrists hurt and started going for it
i.e you can have it easier, but you go further from one stroke on 10 than you would on 5.
you can go ridiculously fast without being actually rediculously fast.
i think if it's blocked a bit then you go a bit faster
