Outdoor

"Pass auf, dass Du nicht unterzuckerst!". Diesen Spruch musste ich mir öfters anhören, wenn ich nüchtern in die Berge ging, beispielsweise auf die Zugspitze.

Ich gehöre zu den Menschen, die nüchtern mehr Energie haben, als mit vollem Magen. Dazu kommt, dass Essen und das damit verbundene Insulin im Blut den Fett-Abbau verhindert. Wenn Du also beim Bergsport abnehmen willst: Einfach mal Brot oder andere Kohlenhydrate unterwegs weglassen!

Da mich der Zusammenhang zwischen Glukose-Spiegel und Leistung interessierte, habe ich den Supersapiens Glukose-Sensor getestet, außerdem noch einen Freestyle Libre 2 Sensor. Außerdem wollte ich den Verdacht auf eine Insulinresistenz überprüfen.

Um es auf den Punkt zu bringen: SuperSapiens misst nur Unfug, der Abbott ist brauchbar - sehr verwunderlich, da es sich um eine ähnliche technische Basis handelt.

The recently released Garmin Fenix 6 Pro is in my opinion the best outdoor watch and comes with the free "TopoActive" card.

This map is - in my opinion - based on OSM (OpenStreetMap), but it lacks details and does not fit the high standard of such a high quality watch. In addition, the map is limited, not even Crete is included.

If you want to have a more detailed map for the Alps on the Fenix, you can also buy the TOPO TransAlpine+ PRO from Garmin for ~ 150 €, but I advise against it, because this map contains the same absurd errors as the maps from Outdooractive.

Paths lead in canyons, do not exist, the actual paths are missing, an impertinence to demand money for it. In my opinion, this is not only true for Garmin, but also for Outdooractive. Unfortunately, these are the only maps I know of with a slope gradient layer, which is very useful for planning tours in the snow in winter.

A very good alternative to the maps available at Garmin is the OSM-based map from www.freizeitkarte-osm.de, which I recommend, with a little adjustment, for the Garmin Fenix 6.

Anyone who knows me knows that the regular near-accidents with walking sticks on my mountain tours annoy me, as I believe that walking sticks limit the balance of most participants.

In my opinion, the participants, who often use walking sticks, are usually the most insecure.

I have been organising mountain tours for years - and one thing never ceases to amaze me:

Participants are talked into all kinds of useless stuff in the sports shops - but the important things are missing.

One such equipment detail - which in my opinion is essential - is "Grödeln", which is the subject of this short article.
