Around 8K, again rowing bow in the double. Garmin says 8364m, but once again (sigh) I forgot to turn it off until after we finished carrying boats back up to the boathouse.
We were out with the single again, so keeping him comfortably close for safety. When we got a bit further ahead than ideal, we did some things that added meters without adding much lead time-wise, like row up through a bridge only to spin immediately after, to give me a little bridge-steering practice, and looping downstream a bit at the start while he launched, before starting our normal upstream course.
As a consequence of some of that, we were approaching a stretch where I prefer to be cleanly single file, with him pretty close behind, so we laid on a short power piece to pull further ahead, which went very well given how little practice we've had doing that this season. (It's easy to get frantic when powering up, and rush the slide, or lose some technique, but it was pretty smooth. Nice.)
Such a beautiful day, too: Sunny, 40s F, flat water, isolated trees turning bright red and yellow against a backdrop of most still fully-leaved and green (looks like flowers in a bouquet). It was pretty awesome.
Then my car broke down, and had to be flatbedded to the repair shop, but that's a different story. 🤣
