When All Hallows’/All Saints’ gives a longer weekend, go for a quick change of scenery – like to the Alps. With a lull in between rather worse weather, head up a mountain.
Or, of course, get outdoors wherever you are. Remember, you can even use the city to your sports adventure advantage ;)
So, this November 1, over I went to the Traunstein, over the mountain itself, and back again…
And of course – like life, the economy, and everything – mountain trails can’t just climb up forever. The descent, though, can be just as exhilarating as the views gained from the climb, and maybe even more fun, giving new impetus and motivation…
Strange thing is, this was “only” 33 km (compared to the 75 km not quite a week before), but the power necessary for the climb and the pounding of the descent made for quite a bit more exhaustion. Today, the day after, I feel it rather more – and then again, not nearly as much as I used to.
You get used to what you do, and get deeper into inertia or impetus, towards worse or better – but more on that in a forthcoming post.
If you want to see more data, have a closer look at the map, or the like, the “move” is on Movescount. You are of course welcome to interact here, or there’s also the Facebook page for at home in….
