  • Training log: 26-Oct to 01-Nov 2015

    Monday 26-Oct: MTB ride, on trails. Had the day off work, so I wasn’t time-limited, but still elected to keep it reasonable (1h06, 22.5km, 369m elevation) because for some reason whenever I ride the bike nowadays I get a sore left knee and neck pain. (Strava) Tuesday 27-Oct: A faster sprint training! We did the […]

  • Training log: 01/Oct/2015

    At lunch, I walked 4.21km in 48:10 (11:26/km) with 110m of elevation gain. In the evening, I once again went to a club training. I forgot to switch the GPS back on after some stretches, so I don’t have complete numbers for the evening, but it seems I did about 5km of running, some lunges, […]

  • Daily training log: 29/Sep/2015

    At lunch-time, I did a 4.1km walk at a leisurely pace (10:46/km). In the evening, I joined the sprint group at CSL. Did a warm-up on my own (on grass while they jogged on pavement outside), then joined the team for some more slow/faster running on the grass, and a small amount of stair work. […]

  • Daily training log: 28/Sep/2015: 27km bike ride

    Did another lunch-time bike ride. Fairly average, 26.98km, 1:02:02 duration, 26,1 km/h average speed, 184m elevation gain. The bad part (and I’m not sure if it’s entirely the fault of today’s ride) was that in the evening, I had excruciating neck pain, which in turn caused a very strong and persistent headache that I only […]

  • Year in review: 2014

    Summing up an entire year is not an easy task, especially if there’s been a few different things going on, but nothing that really stands out. On the track, both indoors and outdoors, I ran a few competitions but wasn’t happy with the majority of them. My best 100m was 11″65 (+0.1m/s), which translates to […]

  • Ben Nevis (Mountain Path route)

    In September 2014, I set out to summit Ben Nevis on the easy Mountain Path route. Since I was pressed for time, I chose to run/powerhike and made the 16km trip up and down the highest mountain in the UK in less than 4 hours, half of what it might take a typical hiker.

  • Zugspitze via Höllental route

    This page chronicles my hike to the top of Zugspitze – Germany’s highest mountain – over the Höllental route. While this ascent does not require technical climbing it is still quite tough, since it involves a height difference of almost 2200m (7200ft), a small glacier crossing and a via ferrata for the last 400m height […]
