I had more kilometers done this year than ever before and I expected just a short trip of about three hours. But there were over 600 participants in my group and the race went straight on from the beginning.
I gave what I had but could not avoid to be overtaken until the last meters. This race was much more exhausting than I had expected. But when you have finished you are proud of your performance independent of the rank you have.
For the next season I want to do more kilometers and try to start for the next higher class. Mountain biking is one of my favourite sports. Its a wounderful feeling to rave down a hill, sometimes a little dangerous and rushing adrenalin
This summer my neighbors and I we joined the Sihlseelauf, a run of 14.5 kilometers along the Shilsee lake. The distance was longer and there were more ups and downs than in other years because the bridge above the lake is being repaired.
We started the race almost in the first line with the consequence that a lot of other participants overtook me during the race. But the race was even so a great fun for me.
I had an average of 5 minutes per kilometer and are very proud of my performance.
A couple of years ago I attended a speaking of Dr. Ulrich Strunz in Vienna. He held a wounderful speak about jogging and easeness of live. Jogging should help to train your physical condition but also your brain.
After his speak for some weeks I stood up early in the morning and jogged for half an hour. And the result was really wounderful. I had a clear brain in the morning and a very fresh physical feeling.
Years later I heard that medicals named a new kind of physical destruction “Morbus Strunz” because all people with this pain got it from jogging in the kind how Dr. Strunz had told them.
