Morning Mist – Single Outing

We were discussing the fall yesterday on a little rowing oriented group. The discussion started around the beautiful fall colors that accompany the Head of the Charles Regatta. Then someone posted this:

Fall in Monte Negro

So, I could just as well stop this blog post here, because it’s not going to get more beautiful.

Still, it was a beautiful autumn day today. It started misty but then it became nice and sunny. I took a video of my 60 minutes Steady State row. You can see how misty it was.

I rowed a 12km steady state. The original plan was to row all the way to Veverska Bityska, but I had to turn about 500m past the castle. I suddenly noticed that I could see the bottom of the river about 10cm below my boat. When I turned the single, I got into even shallower water. My blade hit the bottom. Luckily, the bottom is muddy and weak, but I wouldn’t want to run my fin over a rock.

The gorge/river part was less misty, but when I got back on the lake, there was even thicker mist than when I left. In the final 3km, I met 4 pairs, two singles and a ladies/girls eight. With the mist, you see the oncoming boats only in the last moment, and you have to look around constantly.

There was a weird silence on the lake, in this weather.

Here’s the workout in numbers:

I took a few pictures when I was doing groceries. This part of Brno is where the city ends, with the usual malls and car dealers, then it transitions into small hills with villages.
