Walking in the Mountain of Teneriffa

I wanted to look around and discover a different environment of Teneriffa. Normally I trained along the beach or up on the hills but this time we rented a bus and walked in the mountains.

How beautiful it was! What a splendid view. I was so surprised about how it look, I was expecting something else. It was very nice to walk there and the weather wasn’t good along the beach so we didn’t really missed anything.

A few days past and we were normally eating at the hotel. Now we ate at one restaurant in the mountains. They served us tapas, with local sausages, pimentos, cheese many small and delicious dishes.

It was a very nice day to walk. The physical effort was not as big as normal days, however we were walking for many hours. It was a day of rest and pleasure.

Results that pay off


I went walking to another top with some friends. I been running for some days and I got pain in my knees. I was told that the material are hard to run on, I therefor search for a different material to run on. Finally, after a few days I found the right place to run on.

I realised that it was after hard work of training that I managed to run this road in the middle of the day at lunchtime. It was warm and steep and I wouldn’t have managed to do this running time at the beginning of the trip.
