+1 as I found out recently when trying to run an event, turns out I can row 10K way faster than I can run 10K for example.
This did raise the question however, if the rowing didn't help my running as much as I had expected then does running help your rowing ?
Bearing in mind that distance running is going to do next to nothing to improve your upper body and rowing is more technical I think the answer is probably not as much as you may be expecting.
This is of course all relative as it does come down to the pace you are setting yourself as a goal.
