Spring in Kuchl

Last week we had to go for Kuchl even we knew that the temperatures would not rise more than 7 degree. Over the night we had even -4 which is cold for sleeping in the car. We are very lucky that one of our sponsor ( Ateso ) helped us with the car heating which makes the sleeping very comfortable over the cold nights! The waves was working pretty late this time , they started around 12 so we had lot of time in the morning and we could wait for good temperatures, because as you can see on the picture there was freezing also in the morning and I cant say that we left the car too early. We used 2 session each day, it was awesome! Only one time Nina didn't count with freezing cold water, so she didn't wear as many clothes as she should and got supercooled. The point is when this happens to you, you need to change the clothes and quickly get some heat. She slept and cry in sleeping bag for an hour or so and she was alright. During the time we were not kayaking we was outside so we needed to keep our muscles in warm and ready for next session. I need to thanks Adidas for the awesome gear, which they support us with. The gear definitely works , keeps you warm and comfortable. So even the spring is coming very slow to middle Europe we still are able to kayak and travel in the mean time.

This friday I need to stay home because I will be tested in our National Sport center for the bio chemistry and functional sport tests. Its gone be a hard morning for sure!

Than we had plan to go for Plattling but unfortunately there is no water at all , seams that the winter wasn't very pleasant for us.

So again thanks a lot for the support which allows to work on 100% on our trainings.

Here are some pictures from Kuchl taken by Nina.
