About three weeks ago my CrossFit Endurance Coach Shane talked to me about an event 26.2 CrossFit held, a year or so ago, called Row To Cuba. The competition was to see who could row the 90 miles from Miami to Cuba on the Concept2 Rower the quickest, within a month’s time. He thought maybe that would be a good challenge for me since I decided I am not really a runner and have taken such a strong liking to the rower.
So I talked to my other Coach, Jamie – the Marine, because he won the men’s division for the competition and he is my inspiration when it comes to the rower. After getting tips from him I decided to row for 30 minutes, just to see how far I could go. I discovered I could row quite well for thirty minutes and I covered enough distance to feel good about what I will need to daily row to get the job down.
Taking that 90 mile rowing challenge, my name for it is Row FROM Cuba – Part One Challenge. It is so named to thank Rafael Cruz for coming to America, living a Patriot’s dream and to bring awareness to and support for TedCruz.org, TedCruz.org. (Yes, I wrote that twice on purpose.)
And if I survive the rigorous rowing schedule I have set up for myself then I will talk about it and post a Part Two Challenge for myself.
