A great day out in the river trails today. Building distances now for Abel Tasman in October. Scarily close! Managed 28km reasonably comfortably with plenty of elevation. It must be spring because the air was full of pollen. It almost looked like must until we saw the yellow dust settling on our clothes
Waitangi Day. Long weekend = 2nd Monday off in two weeks. I’ll leave the political and philosophical commentary for another day because it is something I really need to find a whole lot more about.
We decided to hit the Waikato River trails on our bikes today. 12.5km from Mangakino to Whakamaaru and the same back again (surprising, eh?). Ups and downs both ways but also quite exposed and it was a hot, hot day! Good to cool off in the lake at the end. Here’s Nigel looking very wee next to the big boulder.
Starting the year off with a blast and making the most of my last few days of holidays.
26km from Poiwhenua to Arapuni Dam and back again with the Minions minus 1. (Main Minion is in Orlando about to do the Dopey Challenge – 1 crazy Minion!)
It was a beautiful day and good to get some solid training in for the Oxfam Trailwalk.
