Hikes and climbs

stats of the week: run 11 km, cycled 75 km, hiked and climbed 9 h
stats of the previous week: run 38 km, cycled 79 km, hiked and climbed 12 h

Hiking and climbing was the main activity as we spent our holiday at Lake Garda and later the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain. However, I hope to establish running weeks of at least 40 km from now on. It's 5 weeks to the local half marathon in Bochum and 9 weeks to Berlin Marathon so I have to move to proper training. Not too strenuous of course, I will try to approach cautiously to higher mileage without any speed work.

Via ferrata Fausto Susatti with great views of Riva and Torbole.


Via ferrata Burrone Giovanni has the advantage of a descent by cable car.

For the yearly climb of the Zugspitze we chose the rarely taken ascent
from Riffelriss train station to Wiener Neust├Ądter Hut
and then the well known climb to the top.
