Hardly breaking a sweat, he strolled off and left the rower for me.

Jesus, I gave it some punishment.

I rowed and rowed and rowed until I was knackered. Looking at the stopwatch, I realised I'd only been on it for 45 seconds, and I was half dead.

Not to be put off, I kept going. And going. And going. Until I was sick down my front.

I crawled - CRAWLED - back to the changing rooms, was sick some more and left, never to darken their door again.
