5:12 AM in St. Wolfgang..

The sun slowly rises over the mountain crests of the Salzkammergut region, painting the grey night sky in strong orange tones – today's weather forecast again predicts a cloudless sky, brilliant sunshine and temperatures above 30 °C.

'The early bird catches the worm', which gives me enough time to exercise before the sun reaches its zenith and I can stretch out on my sunbed after training.

SO WHAT SHALL I DO
today?

Should I put on my swimming costume and take a dip in the cold water? Should I put on my running shoes and follow the tracks of the Lake Wolfgang route? Do I want to get up high and climb the Schafberg mountain before the swathes of tourists arrive in the lift? Or should I take my bike and cycle up to St. Gilgen?

Depending on my mood, I can do lengths in the 25 m indoor panorama pool or jump straight into the lake. [P83]-The Pool has a lane that tracks your time – this awakens my competitive instinct and I try to surpass myself with every length.

But swimming around the 20 °C lake also has its attractions. So I put on my swimming clothes, throw on a bathrobe, walk the few steps across the meadow to the jetty and off I go.. already I'm in the water..

I'll go on a hike with my partner on one of the other days, and I'll keep my running shoes for when I do the Lake Wolfgang run in October. The hotel has a spacious gym with excellent equipment, but in this weather it would be a shame..

Perhaps a cycle ride in the morning? But I'd need to have my bike checked first – it's handy that there's a workshop and bike rental store right next door. While I wait, I enjoy a large breakfast on the sunny terrace to get me ready for the day!

.. phew, now I'm exhausted..

I take my packed bathing bag back to my room and find a free sunbed right by the lake. The calm and privacy is great, no children screaming anywhere in the whole building – that's because my Cortisen is a hotel for adults!

In the afternoon, I could treat my tired muscles to a massage in the Pavilion directly on the lake.. I'll go and check right now if they have any slots available!

EVENING
The end of the day

I'm glad that I thought of booking a table for dinner when I was having breakfast – the menu is heavenly and just the right thing after an active day.

This is a genuine treat! We are sitting on the terrace looking out onto the lake, enjoying a calm end to the day while watching the sun slowly set. With my sore muscles, I'll sleep like a log.. I am excited to find out what the next day has in store for me..
