My God these Rowing workouts

So we have a couple of rowing machines in my building and I've been using them for a mid-day workout a few times a week. Holy Shit, they seem to get harder every time I do them. I've been rowing 4 sets of 500m for best time or 3 sets of 1000m for time. My best 500m time far is 1:38 and I feel like I'm going to suffocate by the end of it. I definitely recommend rowing as a quick and brutal conditioning workout.

I use it at the gym mostly because its fun, like being on a ride. Maybe I'm not working out hard enough...

Set it on about 5 for resistance and try to get to 500m in under 1:45. My technique might not be right but I try to push really hard with my legs each time and use my upper body only to complete the pull.
