I moved to a mountain hotel at 2000m, however I didn't plan on a dump of 30 cm of snow last night. As there wasn't going to be any running in the snow I took the gondola to grindelwald then ran up the road to the middle station, which was about 650m of climb and just above the snow line. Then went across to the railway which was another 5km of up and down. Shockingly the train was 2 min later than scheduled. Quite happy with how these inov8s went in the wet/snow, so they may be the thing if the conditions stay like this.

After a few days of grinding uphills I thought it was time for a flat run, so took the train to Wilderswill and then did 8x3min on the track back up to laurtebrunnen. The pace was a bit varied which I suspect might be satellite problems in the deep valley as well as the undulations on the track. Two interuptions, held up by a train on the 4th one, then met my parents walking the other way near then end of the last one so cut it short by a minute. After this the weather went downhill, going to 2000m+ tomorrow for the weekend which could be a bit wild.

Another uphill run, wengen to kleine scheidegg. Sunny again but not as warm as before. Was pleased that I ran all the way even the steep bit near the top where there's about 200m climb in a kilometer. Guessing this will be a lot slower when I've already done 30km.

It was a good looking morning, so I did a run from Schynige Platte to First via Faulhorn. Spectacular run, but more climb than I expected hence it took a while. Had to walk the last steep section up the Faulhorn but was worth it for the view from the top. Most of the run was between 2000 and 2500m which seemed to be OK. Had some hearty soup at a mountain hut on the way down the gondola.

Got to my altitude training camp in wengen today. Started with the run from lauterbrunnen to wengen. As a bit of a warmup I did the 5km along the valley floor before hitting the hill. The steep stuff went for 2km or so, I wanted to walk but was pleased that I didn't even though it was painfully slow. A fantastic sunny day meant that there were awesome views up and down the valley once I got out into the farmland at the top. Conveniently my apartment is right next to the course so I could head straight onto the balcony to revover.
Will load GPS later when I have proper internet connection

shoes: lunar racer+

Had an overnight stop at geneva airport, and as it was still light and sunny headed out for a quick run. Started on a bike path which looked promising, but this just led to a main road which I followed for a while. As I didn't have a map I thought it wasn't too good an idea to try and make a loop out of it so turned round after 15 mins. Legs OK but was feeling a bit jet-lagged so was glad that I didn't make the run any longer
