Run to Sankt Peter

It had finally stopped raining so Leonie and I went for a run to Sankt Peter. The last three weeks of cycling and no running showed and Leonie happily ran along while I hobbled along after her.

RIG Schauinsland TT 2013

I dragged myself out of bed and headed to the start line for the RIG Schauinsland time trial. It was, being spring time in Freiburg, rather cold… At least that has been the pattern this spring and today was no different although it wasn’t raining! Aaaaamaaaazing.

There were 12 keen starters there at 9 am. My legs felt a little sluggish as I headed off as they didn’t seem to have recovered quite from the Tour de Kärnten and the Dolomites just yet. Despite this I puffed up the hill and was surprised when I looked at my speedo near the top and saw 36 minutes. Unfortunately I couldn’t push any harder along the flat section at the end but was still happy with my time of 38:15 (RIG time). This put me in 3rd place from the starters and in 3rd place overall for the RIG cup. The previous night’s alcohol seemed to have had a large negative impact on Marco as he would normally be a good bit faster than me on the climb. The time got me 6th place from 116 on Strava.

Ski tour Hinterzarten March 2013

Leonie and I snuck out for a very short ski tour in the afternoon as the weather was too good to miss. We set off from the train station in Hinterzarten and headed up to the top of the small ski field there before skiing back down and taking the train back to Freiburg.
