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).
