Well the Swiss national circus KNIE may be in town but we had a different reason to visit Bellerive this weekend. Namely the Alive Exhibition of Yann Arthus-Bertrand. His work has already seen pride of place on our website's frontpage for some time.
This study has some pointers on biodiversity and reminds us that as we seemingly improve our lifestyles we simultaneously damage the planet that sustains us.
I had not realised but this is a yearly event of some standing and despite the torrential rain outside we headed over to Mon Repos pool where the event was staged. After a few kilometres of swimming we felt it was best to stop and save our energies for Sunday.
As usual the event was brilliant organised and .. free! How could one resist.
Despite the rain on Sunday it was time for little run outside. Today 35Km. This marathon training of Agata's is killing me! Nevertheless, equipped with a wonderful variety of BBC Radio 4 podcats Agata is adamant that she still runs more slowly than me, just that I dont really believe her. Her Runners world marathon training program and her hard work has transformed her running performance. I conversely have not improved, and I will soon be forced into reading that superb magazine to help put me on the right track. Postscript ... ouch the run has finished and our legs are quite stiff so no running on Monday then only cycling.
Thanks for another wonderful weekend Lausanne
