Hi there 🚵

Welcome to my reluctant exercise journal.

Secret REWE Unlocked!

Kicking off the year a bit late with a start in early March…but BLTN. Inner monologue: Mmm, a BLT Now. I needed to get some groceries for the weekend and the upcoming week, so my plan to was to stop at a REWE on the way back. And I did, but not where I expected. Rather, along Pilsen Allee in Brandlberg (you can see it in the map below as the little blue notch on the long straight north/south line....

Slippery 10k Shuffle

Our first longer walk of the year yielded quite a bit of elevation, in slippery mud, on rocky paths. It was mostly a place we’d been a few times before — the Alpiner Steig outside Eilsbrunn and Schönhofen, but this was the first time we stopped in at the Schlossbrauerei Eichhofen after the stroll. I daresay we’ll be doing that again. Snaps Route Distance: 10.5ish km Moving Time: 2:28 Average Speed: 8 min/km

Glowing through the fog

It was cold and wet — not rainy, just moist. That’s the weather I like, typically. But my feet got achingly cold. From here on out towards spring, I guess I’ll need insulated boots and warmer socks.

Video You’ll want to turn the sound off for this (I forgot to remove it)....

I was debating whether to do a short loop through Leoprechting and Graß, or a longer loop down to Bad Abbach, and in the end I split the difference and opted for Scharmassing and Neudorf and Hohengebraching as waypoints....

True Radler

I did one of my most common routes this morning, but I changed it up by stopping for lunch at the Zunftstüberl outside of Matting for lunch. I was cruising by, making good time, and I thought Dang, a Radler sounds great about now. So I pulled in at the Zunftstüberl. Couple points to mention: Great Kartoffelsuppe with chopped up hotdog in it. Their warme Küche doesn’t start until 11:30; don’t let that mess up your plans....
