Do a warm up and some short rep weightlifting of some sort.

Tanya Wagner and Tommy Hackenbruck were invited to the C.R.A.S.H. B's to race among elite rowers.  It's an indoor 2K race on Concept 2 rowers.

Don't underestimate the C2, it has an uncanny ability to wreck people.  Try to keep a solid, steady pace and crush it!

For time:
2K row
