First e-bike ride together with Urs. He has a more powerful bike than I do which makes me work harder and that is just fine by me. Urs has never in the past (on a regular bike) come as far with me, so I'm happy it works.

Last run before breakfast and on vacation along the shores in beautiful sunshine and comfortable temperatures (24 degrees). Was happy that at the end I could run it under 50 minutes.

Last day of our vacation. Wanted to take advantage of everything, so we opted for a short hike close-by as the weather seems to be turning somewhat. Urs dropped me off on the beginning of the hike to Conde peak which we already climbed two times (2017 and 2019), but I wanted to do the connecting trail (which is part of a long trail connecting the island from the South to somewhere North). I set out alone and pushed the pace and enjoyed myself immensely. It wasn't very far but quite diverse and steep in places. After reaching a pass and a ridge where I could look down the westside until our hotelsite on the Atlantic, I climbed steeply on the slopes of Roque Imoque which we couldn't climb 3 years ago as it was just a little too technical or to tell the truth, we are too short to reach some of the grips higher up on a rockband that circled the mountain. So we gave up and let it be then.
I reached the place, a pass between the two peaks where another threshing circle was and met Urs there. As the clouds obscured the one peak we could easily do, we decided to hike back to the car.

As always and every day, I ended the day with some swimming in one of our pools: one heated humonguous salt-water pool which is just what a pool in paradise would look like and the other sweetwater pool which is not heated but wonderful also to swim in under parlm trees watching the sunset.

Tuesday Nov 2 #

1 PM

Hiking 2:19:10 [3] 8.16 km (17:03 / km) +260m 14:42 / km
ahr:127 max:210

An easy and new hike for us on the Eastern side of the Teide National Park. It was a gentle climb up a shallow pass between two flatish peaks. Lots of different colors of old lava from some several million of years ago when the island was formed and eruptions built this very high area. Unimaginable that the whole thing collapsed once more and from the depth of the earth rose the Teide mountain. Minor eruptions on mostly the western side keep forming its current landscape.
Our hike then continued down a fairly steep slope of granulated old lava which was fun to descend on. Still lots of colors from black to yellow to red.

Monday Nov 1 #

Walking 1:11:28 [1] 5.2 km (13:45 / km) +106m 12:28 / km

A lazy-day walk over to an old friend's Tapas Bar to have lunch.
We took almost the same way back but went to check out the nearby-Rui hotel which is immense.
Another beautiful and warm/hot day.
