An early start at 6.00 am for the last 50 km on the bike. These were challenging though with two long climbs and over 1.000 meters of elevation. Arrived at 9.30 am at the bike Shop Radsport Leitl in Zwiesel where I had sent my running gear. Very nice and helpful reception by the Team and a few journalists. It took some time to change everything and I also joined the bike Shop for lunch before setting off in my running shoes.
A rather slow start as my muscles were adapting from cycling to running. I felt much better after the first 15 km but then had quiet a few hiking sections on the way up and down to Großer Rachel at 1.400 meters to avoid an injury on the rocky trail with dense vegetation. Found a beautiful sleeping spot between the trees when it got dark. Up at an marathon per day speed tomorrow.
