What is a good rowing pace?

This largely depends on the distance. On a 500m workout, 02:00/500m is good to aim for. For longer distances (1k, 2k, or 5k meters), you might be a bit slower and for shorter ones (50, 100, or 200 meters) a bit faster.

With an increasing distance, your 500m-split will likely decrease. You can check out Paul's law to get an idea of how your pace could behave over time.

How to calculate the 500m Split?

To calculate the split, use the following formula:
Split = 500 * (Time in Seconds / Distance in Meters)

How to calculate the Time?

To calculate the time, use the following formula:
Time = Split in Seconds * (Distance in Meters / 500)

How to calculate the Distance?

To calculate the distance, use the following formula:
Time = (Time in Seconds / Split in Seconds) * 500
