The rower bites back
500m row x 3
Rest as needed between efforts.
“500-meter row--that’s it?” he says with a dismissive smirk, and saunters off to change clothes.
On the first one, he embraces the spirit of the sprint and throws himself into it fully.
It pays off with an excellent time, but not without some...discomfort. Fortunately his friends are there with support and encouragement in the aftermath.
