Once in a while I need a break from playing the guitar. This year I have discovered two possible things to do besides playing music. In July I got my first experiences as an alpinist. I spent a few weeks in altitudes higher than 3500 m and the peak was about 5000 m so I improved my oxygen consumption quite a bit.
Then I got an invitation to take part in a marathon race. It is hard to say no if the marathon passes your own windows. So I did some more practise and finally yestarday I completed my first marathon – SEB Tallinn Marathon 2011. Time was 3:33 and it gave me overall rank No 305 (1500 participants).
So now it is hard to walk and I can get back to my guitar 🙂
