170923 back on the bike
They (the doctors and therapist) told me that after six weeks my shoulder would be fully healed and I could start "training it up". So (six weeks and one day after the operation) I was just out for a roadbike ride. Very slowly and very gently and not too far but none the less a bike ride.


As the picture shows autumn is happening.

Life is getting better every day.

18.6km with an amazing 200 meters of climbing!

170917 "weight lifting"
My shoulder OP is now five weeks ago so I am allowed to start "training". After four weeks I was using a half filled bottle of water (500g) and pulling it in various directions via a rope over the door handle. Now I have moved up to a whole 1000g!



I bet all the ladies in the fitness studio would be very impressed by this.

Got the hang of this "hiking" thing. Just walk with interesting people and then you don't notice how boring it is :-)



Gertrud and Jon kept me amused during a 70 minute walk today.

6.5KM and we achieved 5.5km/h. Not so bad.

170825 Bayerstetten
From today (2 weeks after the OP) I no longer ned to wear my "mobile shelf" so I went for a walk to Bayerstetten and back. Gentle and slow but my shoulder isn't hurting so we are getting there.

I am also doing a set of exercises six times a day to stop my shoulder siezing up.

170815 Gschwend
Still walking around with my shoulder on a "mobile shelf" round my neck so no big adventures planned today. I have to wear this thing for another 10 days. Great!

But I managed a monster tour all the way to Gschwend and back. 4.5km. Had to stop and rest at Chris' and then for a coffee at Strömer's in Brand. I can't believe that only 10 days ago I did the Uina tour.



[next day] did the same walk again. Much quicker and less out of breath. Must be getting fit.

The smallest tour this year. 1.5km with 35 meters of climbing. On Friday I had a small operation on my shoulder. Sunday lunchtime they took the lastt tubes out so I went for a walk up the neighbouring hillock in the sun. I think I took about an hour :-)

170808 Bayerstetten
Tuesday evening but just Heidi and I.
Cycled up towards Haslacheralp in the drizzle and then turned left to Bayerstetten Kopf. Back down to Bayerstetten where it started chucking it down. It was like having buckets of water tipped over you. In the five minutes it took to get home, we were soaked through.

10km and 348 meters of climbing. Track is at https://www.gpsies.com/map.do?fileId=bliwbxapcexnrvbd

170805 Uina Schlucht
Caro has been planning this tour all summer and on Friday my shoulder is being operated on so it was "now or not this year".

We were on the motorway by 04:30 and in Martina (Switzerland) two hours later.



Cycled up the Engadin to Sur En and then up the Uina valley to the Uina Dadaint Alp for breakfast. Then on through the gallery to the Sesvenna hut in Italy. Via Burgeis and Reschen back in to Austria and then back down to the cars.

Three countries in 12 hours

72km and 2228 meters of climbing (1200 in one go - no wonder I was knackered). Track is at https://www.gpsies.com/map.do?fileId=cjvvfqqqxgczmskf

170803 Allatsee
Wera, Bettina and I cycled to the Allatsee for a swim.
(They swam I didn't because of the tape on my broken toe)



The route there was partly on paths I didn't even know existed.

170716 Tarscher Trail
Second day in Vinschgau. Wera had a plan but the cable car only took bikes up before nine or after three o'clock so we needed a new plan.



Decided on the Tarscher Trail. All the up hill was with a chair lift and then an S1-S2 grade trail back downhill.

5km and no uphill climbing. Track is at http://www.gpsies.com/map.do?fileId=wmnxqhsssvdhbtix

170706 Schnitzlertal
Wera and Gremml, Bettina and I.
It was very hot when we left but once the sun went down and we were in the trees, it was pleasant.



Stopped off at the Sorg Alp on the way home for a beer and a few "schnapps". There we met all the others from the other two groups who had also stopped for a drink.

41km with 889 meters of climbing.
