75km Mountainbike Tour

And now it’s 8:15pm and I’m sooo tired but happy!
My Mom’s in London having a blast with her best friend so I drove out to my Dad today.

I left in the morning at 9:20, met my dad at around 10:30, arrived home home at aroung 11:45. The afternoon I spent laying in the sun and I left for my home again at around 4:45pm.

It was a very good day, nice sunny and warm (yet windy) and I can’t wait to get my good night’s sleep!

Climbing Adventures

Climbing park in Garmisch.
It was so scary – it was so high and shaky!

Coming down 🙂
Great experience, you lose your fear of hights when you do more and more because you have to concentrate so much on NOT FALLING!

Crossfit #1

Today I completed my first Crossfit session. It was good, it was hard, it was fun!
training
I was so nervous so I forgot to take photos of the inside – I took the ones above when I left the building, thought I’d catch the flair of it 🙂

We started out with some theory and did some warm ups after. Then we split into three groups, my group (three men and me) were responsible for the burpees build-up, the other two for the squat kettlebells, group three for the kettlebell swing.

We got trained on how to perform those excercises and then we made three rounds, each excercise one minute and after the three minutes of:

  • 1 Min. Burpees with Box Jumps
  • 1 Min. Squats and
  • 1 Min. Kettlebell Swings
  • we made a 1 Min. break.

    In the end I was so happy to be in the “Burpee-Starter” group because those were the hardest. The jump on the box – oh my! My heart rate reached the 90% border. It was good and fun though and I might get a time card for 10 times.

    Wonderful Public Holiday

    Today is a public holiday here which means no work *yay* 🙂
    After the Boyfriend and I slept in we sat on the couch, surfed and had coffee. Then we cleaned the apartment (good teamwork) and after that we went biking with a stop at a Biergarten to have beer and Obatzter.

    It was a lovely tour, the weather was great, not too warm and not too cold.

    We got home at around 4pm, had a cup of coffee again on the balcony and at around 6pm I went for a short run of 5km.

    I stretched and showered after, we had a lovely dinner and now we’re watching a chick-movie – “the proposal” with Sandra Bullock while it’s getting darker and darker outside seeing a big storm is coming.

    Ah how I love awesome days like this 🙂

    Run #5 – 10km #2

    10km Got a little lost in the forest but at least I got the 10km complete. I tried to run at a good heartrate which made my run 1h 12min long. Took the route next to the highway and was surprised to see no fence nor trees between the highway and the path I was running.
    I couldn’t quite manage to keep the heartrate I wanted. It was higher. Maybe I’ll run 5km next time again or get a trainingplan from the internet on how to run 10km.
    There are so many websites on jogging, but now the weather is rainy and cold again and I’m a sunny-warm-weather jogger 🙂

    Fitness Check #2

    Half year after my Fitness check #1

    Yesterday I had my second fitness-check, which means:

    1. resting ECG (Cardio Scan)
    2. body fat measuring
    3. BMI measuring
    4. biking until a heart rate of 150

    It all took about one hour. Here my results

    1. resting ECG

      My heart beat was at 63, which is good.
      My fit level with that rate was at 3, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest. I went one point up from last time!
    2. body fat measuring
      Body fat: 21,0% It went up 3,2% – 2kg… I also gained 2kg of body weight, hmm, maybe I’m not building muslce but fat ;). Last time it was 16,8% which I thought was a little too less and I didn’t really believe in the fat-measuring machine. 21% sounds better for a woman my age 😀
    3. BMI measuring
      19,5
    4. biking until a heart rate of 150 – pwc-test
      I was in the area between “very good” and “good”. I warmed up five minutes, then had to bike at the same speed for one or two minutes with increasing inclination until I reached a heart rate of 150. Then cool down and my trainer wrote down my heart rate after one minute, after three and after five. Then some calculations followed and my result was 1,71 watt/kg.
