One good, one not so good and one to go

Yes! I am going to get three workouts in today. Punishment for skipping yesterday. Quite honestly, I feel up to it.

First workout Row 500m, 50 swings, row 500m, 40 swings, row 500m, 30 swings, row 500m. Just did this workout about a week ago in 13:57 which was a pretty good time compared to prior weeks. I finished in 12:55 today and think I could have done a little better transitioning between excersises. I had a little under 8 minutes on the rowing machine which I thought was pretty good.

Second workout done immediately following - 800 yard swim. I had no power - all soaked up by the first workout. Physically I felt fine - I just could not generate power. Finished in 14:55 which is my slowest recorded time since I started keeping track (last December).

The next workout is running intervals - I intentionally saved this one for last because I won't miss this one - I could easily see myself skipping one of the other two (probably the swim).

I am looking for a rowing machine. Preferrably a Concepts 2 model D. I would be willing to consider a model C. I have been looking on Craigslist and Ebay (I hate Ebay) and the ones' on Craigslist go so fast - they are generally gone within a couple of days. I don't have time to look every day. It would get in the way of the time I allocate for blogging. Like I said, I hate Ebay - I would like to pick it up rather than pay up to $150 for shipping- all of the one's on Ebay right now are too far away.

If you know anyone selling a rowing machine please let me know. If I don't find one soon I will (gulp) have to pay full price for a new one.

I need a squat rack as well - know anyone getting rid of one?
