You have already received excellent advice, but I think you could get better advice if you explain what is stopping you from doing a 5k right now.
  • Are you stopping because you are out of breath?
  • Are you stopping because you are out of strength?
  • Are you stopping because you get pain?
  • Are you stopping because you can't mentally cope with a longer session?
These are very different reasons for stopping, and they are all valid reasons, but they may have different solutions.

Its absolutely ok to stop and take a breather / walk around and restart. If you are consistently rowing and avoiding injury , you will improve. Metres rowed are metres rowed. It does take a while to adjust but persistence is key.
