Jogging 1:09:07 [3] 6.39 km (10:49 / km) +150m 9:40 / km
ahr:141 max:220

Walk/jog first with Urs, then by myself up to see Sandra and tell her/them that we're back. On the way back, the same, walk with Urs first, then jog on a longer route back down. But my muscles would not want to move in the running mode. Strange. I was exhausted in-between. But then I felt like I needed to make an effort, especially on the downhill to get the running momentum going which actually worked ;-).

1 PM

Ski touring 1:52:33 [2] 4.51 km (24:59 / km) +339m 18:09 / km
ahr:79 max:128

We tried again to climb the highest hillpeak behind where we are but on a different route. More steady climbing and Urs had no problems this time. Kind of strange how he felt on Tuesday and hopefully it is an isolated thing.
Easy going up and lots of local people on top. We stayed quite long up there before zooming back down mostly on a ski hill. Fun outing.

Swimming 20:00 [2] 0.4 km (50:00 / km)

Went swimming in our beautiful pool with sweet, soft water directly from the source.
2 PM

Classic x-c skiing 1:19:04 [3] 10.58 km (7:28 / km) +159m 6:57 / km
ahr:115 max:208

Went up to the xc-ski tracks again as I couldn't find another option: around our house the snow is melting like ice cream in the sun, so trails are mostly snowy or muddy. There was but classic skiing left. Did the 2 full loops without stopping just enjoying the flow. The snow was a little "slow" which was just fine by me.
Still very warm, skiing without hat nor gloves.

Swimming 20:00 [2] 0.4 km (50:00 / km)

Went for a quick swim with the setting sun shining inside. It felt so good.
2 PM

Classic x-c skiing 1:10:56 [3] 8.76 km (8:06 / km) +125m 7:34 / km
ahr:120 max:208

Another beautiful and warm day. We drove up to the Boedeli and did the cross-country ski loops. I pretty much stayed with Urs on the first loop, then took of do to a shorter loop by myself.
It's a fairly easy loop though it has lots of quick turns and bends and it almost constantly goes a little up, then down. But I love the flow on this loop and the constant changes.

Ski touring 1:19:29 [2] 2.25 km (35:19 / km) +285m 21:37 / km

The three of us drove up to the Boedeli in anticipation of a beautiful, sunny day with excellent snow. We set out together, but soon after, Hans went his own way and Urs and I went our "normal" route up steeply. As Urs started having difficulties with dizziness, I returned and went with him to make sure he was safe. Further up on a sunny spot he told me to go after Hans who had disappeared into the woods further up. So I followed the uphill-skitouring trail until I was up on the highest point, but no Hans. Didn't quite know what to think until I got the message that he was on the way down. So I hurried down, too and found both of them on the spot Urs had waited (he was quite cold at that time). We skied quickly down enjoying some beautiful turn in the fresh snow.
With this new warm weather the snow that fell a week ago will melt away very fast!

Classic x-c skiing 1:20:49 [3] 10.8 km (7:29 / km) +159m 6:58 / km
ahr:120 max:211

We arrived yesterday in Austria just a few km over the Swiss border up from the Lake of Constance in the Bregenzer forest. As the weather was overcast and cold and windy, I went by myself to check out the cross-country ski tracks. And to my surprise and enjoyment, they were excellent. Deep well-groomed tracks and the usual loops but this time the snow was a joy to ski on.
Did 2 loops.
