A walk on my day off

Today is the last day of our holiday at Buchau in the Austrian Tyrol. Tomorrow morning, before we finish packing, I am going to do W6R3. At least, I hope I am. This afternoon my husband decided it would be nice to go for a walk to the waterfalls. We set off in the general direction of up. I have to say that I'm not great at gradients. I have naturally tight calves so going up isn't a lot of fun and my knees aren't keen on the downhill bits. Still, we got up and saw Dalfazer Wasserfall and then came down via Buchauer Wasserfall. The former was more impressive than the latter. As I was puffing and panting on the way up I reflected on what a good job it was that I had been improving my general fitness over the C25K programme. I'm hoping that this exertion (not running) will help with my run tomorrow. I'll let you know!

  • I just did W5R3 and am thrilled to bits, but still oh so jealous of you being in the Tyrol. I was there a couple of years ago in the summer and it was gorgeous. Those mountains are definitely not made for runners though! Enjoy your last day and the run in that beautiful scenery!

  • W5R3 was my first run in my holiday. A great way to start the week! Bet you felt on top of the world when you'd finished that one! And now I'm going to round it off with W6R3.

  • Well done keeping to the plan whilst on holiday - you won't forget where you did W5R3 EVER. Will be thinking of you tomorrow morning when I'm also doing W6R3! Safe journey home.

  • Thanks. I did it!!!!
