Hi there 🚵

Welcome to my reluctant exercise journal.

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. Snaps The bike-mounted snaps are off by an hour in their timestamps because I still haven’t set that camera’s clock for Winterzeit. Video You’ll want to turn the sound off for this (I forgot to remove it)....

November 6th, 2022

It’s been a while since I biked and recorded a route and route about it. Which is not good, of course, but better late than never. This was a nice, gentle step back into it.

10 somewhat creepy km in Regensburg

After returning from Iași on July 8th, my fitness regimen was hindered by a few different things: weather (it’s been pretty hot!), and intense work stuff (which is why I scheduled the business trip the way I did), but mostly mein innerer Schweinehund I wanted to set off this morning on a bike ride, but I found a flat tire waiting for me. So I took a stroll instead....
