TRANSALPINE DAY 3
STAGE 3 DONE! 42km 1800m climbing
From Hirshegg to Galtur, Austria/
Felt Strong TEAM Energi fell back a few positions today..d'ats OK. Couldn't imagine how my body could get up and do it today considering how it felt last night. But Wow
it just starts to adapt to this crazy stuff!
Rained the whole day! Was about 3 Degrees at over 2700m where we were and I froze my buns off, especially my hands...like icicles! When you are up high...the weather can bite you (always better to bring more than enough clothes) The HOT SOUP at the Food Stations Just Rocks! As well as the tomato and cucumber with salt. and...wolfing that down by the handfuls. and of course a whopping handful of trailmix.....always manage to grab When you are wet...its hard to stay warm...we weren't running as much as it was rocky and wet... Simone had a lot of stomach problems but we made it through with a smile on our face at the end. She hasn't been eating much most of the week as her stomach won't let her...so I forced a shake in her at the end....She must stay strong for the week!
Staying at this Guesthouse in this HUGE beautiful room with breakfast for only 25 Euros....that rocks! Well to bed we go and up at 6! Oh my goodness....I think I am getting used to this.......Just another 40km tomorrow! with temperatures of 0 Degrees and ice where we are hiking to....
I will let you know how the adventure unfolds....
