Good job @Unimatrix0… I’ll go so far as to PROMISE that if you were to pump that same effort out every day for a fortnight, or at worst on alternate days, you’ll be thanking yourself for putting up with the apparent boredom.
I used to NOT do turbo-training on road bike because of the same prospect, but I overcame it and pressed on because I’d read the HUGE benefits of such concentrated training to your road cycling…and the same applies to rowing.
If you didn’t already, after a few repeats you’ll find some form of counting mantra and pattern will come into your head. At first it might annoy you, but best embrace it and use it to get you through the set. For example, it takes me around 150 strokes to get through 1,000 metres…and I found myself counting up to fifty, then restarting and counting one-to-one hundred, by which time the thousand was up…and you go again…and other patterns to your rythmic counting will come to you.
I found myself doing those things to counter the automatic habit of watching the metres go up (if you’ve set it to ‘Just Row’)…or metres going down (if you’ve set it to count down from, say 5,000 or 2,000 metres).
Promise, promise, promise…persevere and you’ll love the feel-good factor, if not the actual process, that stationary rowing gives you
