Rowing for Triathletes

There aren't many triathlons that include rowing, but there are a few! Even if rowing isn't in your tri, it makes a great training substitute for the usual legs. So if you're setting up an indoor brick workout, and don't have access to a pool or a bike, use rowing as one of your legs. Since the transition to running is generally the hardest, a row-run brick might be the most beneficial, in terms of getting your body accustomed to making the transition to running.
