After 1 week photography for the Team Alvimedica the fact who touched me most is the motivation and the determination in their charity program.
It’s all about helping those in need. I had the chance to talk for a longer time with the Alvimedica CEO Cem Bozkurt, the amount of funds allready collected by the Team is great and what’s even more impressive is to feel his passion and hear his visons and plans to build a global competence center in Split CRO to cure heart diseas.
Our world today is so profit oriented, only short term goals matters
this leads to superficiality, this project is a long and hard walk,
thank you Alvimedica.

The charities will receive the funds raised by the team through auction of a
Pro-Am Race and Jump Seat experience. Bid for your chance to join the
team at a stopover near you! www.teamalvimedica.com/auction/
Fitness test at the Swiss Olympic Medical Center / Schuthess Clinic in Zurich. In about one month the high altitude photo-shooting projects start and It’s time to check the fitness level.
It’s never enough, at least that’s what it feels. The outcome of the test was motivating but cruel too. I’m fit..ok I feel that myself, but how much and do I train the right way.
The heart range during the training was too high, this happens very easily, you skip a training session and the next one you push a bit harder to compensate and that’s a way to loose efficiency, that’s what I learned today.
From now on every second day 30 – 60 min jogging at a lower heart rate (125 – 135) and then once per week a ski tour to prepare the body for the long and hard ascents in case we can’t use the chopper.
Reduce the heart race but increase the training volume, let’s see if it works. Mid April onwards I will feel it. At least I lost 4 Kg since January, this is less weight to carry up on the mountains.
And you, how is your training going?
