Trail Run 1:10:07 [3] 2.6 mi (26:58 / mi) +862m 13:17 / mi

So I was traveling to Venice with a friend who is traveling to "somewhere in Eastern France." The Dolomites didn't make sense from a travel perspective (cost and time) but we found a cheap flight to Zurich, so back to Switzerland! Found a town in the Alps in this amazing valley with hanging valleys and waterfalls—almost Yosemite-ish—near Eiger.

Got in, I was tired, and it started to pour rain. So no run.

This morning, woke up, ate breakfast, and set off up the hill. After 10m realized that the "run" setting on the new watch was far different than the trail run setting, and didn't give me any elevation data. So I stopped, and started a new activity. Nice huff and puff up the hill, just about as long as expected.

Hiking 2:30:00 [1] 10.5 mi (14:17 / mi) +355m 12:56 / mi

Then a hike off to the Eiger Trail, which goes right along the face of Eiger. Definitely hiking, sort of guessing at useful training time, since on the downhills I was in Level -2 or so. But that was fine. Great views. Snow, cliffs, waterfalls.

There was some discussion of me running back over the top but after food, beer and a check of the weather, I decided to take the train around. Then it rained again, so good idea.
