20km out on the trail today at Tarawera. It’s such a beautiful trail and I was pleased that I felt much better ru nibg than I did a couple of days ago! Finishes off with a swim in the lake and relaxing on the beach watching these wee ones digging holes.
Back out on the trails today. Felt like shit, arrived to find I had two left shoes, forgot to set my watch going but managed to grind out 23km so pretty stoked. Even managed a sneaky dip in the secret hot pool!
Had a good day out on the trails. 26km and felt pretty good. Enjoyed a chilly dip in the lake after…
I spent the day out at Okataina clearing trails for Tarawera Ultra Marathon. It was a beautiful day.
A big adventure today. 23km sliding through mud. Great fun. Unfortunately, no photos of me in action, just the beginning and the end! Stunning setting for the start though and a great send off with a legend to set the scene and a haka.
Preparing tonight for tomorrow’s adventure. Tikitapu 23km which it appears may well be 24.5km! 900m of ascent and 795m of descent with ‘ropes provided to assist as you traverse the ridge line above the lake’. Bring on the challenge!
Went out on the trails at Tarawera today. A bit of a step up for me to 22km with quite a bit of climbing. I felt really good out to the half way point but struggled in the last 5km coming back. Sustained upwardness on very tired legs. The weather was kind to us though. Four hours of run /walking and my legs know they did something today! Good tired though!
