Sihlseelauf 2010

Sihlseelauf 2010

This is one of my home races becaus start and end are just 500 meters away from my home. I don’t like this home race very much because there are not such a lot of starters and a lot of people who are just looking and participating.

I want to be faster every year, and this year I trained more, so normally I should have been faster, but I managed only to finish half a minute faster than last year. Does not matter. It is just for fun. Was very hot, the last kilometer, there was not fresh wind and I really thought, that I can not finished because of the heat.

The funny thing with this race is that there is also a category for kids and my older girls started in this category. I really smiled seeing here with a totally read face coming back to the finish after 1.4 kilometers of exhausting running. But she was very proud of herself and me too. Very well done! I did not expect it!

Strandbad Sihlsee

This is beach of Sihlsee. It is just 10 minutes by bike from my flat. Unbeliefable but I am living in a village where other people are having their holidays.

In summer I often go to the beach with the kids. There is a small street alongside the lake only for walkers normally, but with the kids you can do it with the bike. Noboday will claim about that.

Very often I also go back to the lake with the bike late in the afternoon, when I arrive from office, just for swimming a couple of meters in the fresh water.

This year the weather was so cold the whole summer, that I was only 3 times in water. We were at the beach several times in July, but later in August, the weather was not good enough. And summer is over in Einsiedeln end of August. Then the water gets too cold, below 20 degrees which is too cold then.
