Swimming Across the Zeller See

Last week Gerhard and I had some fun: We swam across the lake in Zell am See. Here's a picture of our route:

I am told it is "800m... maybe a little more" between the two sides. So maybe a little more than 1 mile back and forth. It took us a bit over an hour total (we took it pretty easy). We had the unfortunate luck that it was a very windy day, and especially on the way back, we had to swim against the current during rather choppy conditions. So add a few hundred meters for that.

It was fun. Not too exhausting, but def. a pretty good exercise. I was actually somewhat surprised how exhausted I was in the end, but it was not like mountain-biking.

This was fun! We might actually do it again this week if the weather cooperates.

And a word of warning: If you do this at home, get a boat to go along with you. We didn't have one, but both Gerhard and I are very comfortable swimmers. If you do this and drown, don't sue me! (Or don't have your relatives sue me).

Naja, so schlimm ist das nicht. Man kann sich ja im Falle des Falles einfach treiben lassen. So einfach geht man ja normalerweise nicht unter. Wir haben's aber doch ziemlich durchgezogen. Das war nicht so ein Problem.

Did you have a rest at the other side before keep on swimming? I can’t imagine swimming for more than an hour without having a rest… You’re definitely good swimmers! This must be so exciting swim on such a distance without a bout by your side…

By the day of, we wervcx e a little nervous as to how it would all turn out. I had this image in my head of how we wanted to look but wasn’t sure it would actually translate. When I walked into the reception, I was blown away. I knew I had worked on all the details and been a part of all the work, but to see it all together was just wonderful.
