Allgäu Triathlon 2018
This weekend was a blast! Attended my first triathlon in the beautiful Allgäu mountain landscape - which means some meters in height to tackle:
I did the olympic distance, which is 1.5km swimming, 42km cycling and 10km running. Out of 765 participants I constantly improved my position and I am quite happy with the result. I was really afraid about swimming, but it turned out to be great fun.
As you can see in the video, there is a steep mountain to be climbed after the first two kilometers. The Calvarien-Hill. All in all 1.600 meters in height must be tackled. Berlin makes it hard to train for that.
The first steps after dismounting the bike were terrible. But after 2 kilometers and another steep hill muscles relaxed a bit and I was able to find my pace.
One of the hosts of Pushing Limits actually did win the race (half distance) and did a video about the day:
It’s one of Germanys oldest races with famous participants.
Looking forward to 2019!
