Going to do Rainbow Reach to Motorau Hut. Might even go for a swim at Motorau if warm enough.

It's all about making room for the Christmas Day food eating orgy!! Might need to run the whole Kepler to burn off 5,435 calories I'll consume tomorrow!! :thumbsup:

No run, but did manage a quick, but cruisy, ride on Mt Vic just now.

Did you pull off the plan? That's such a lovely neck of the woods.

Managed a training duathlon today, at Whareroa. Gentle 25km MTB, then a 5km run partway back up the hill and back.

It was good craic.

Just starting in the idea of training for the duathlons and triathlons this year coming.

Was out with my mate Vee. She managed 3km running, while I did the 5km. We're both doing PGT and others this year.

Yeah mate. Xmas Day rainbow reach down to Motorau and back. No swim as was about 10 degrees. 12km, and managed to find a couple of random backpackers to bring home for Christmas Dinner. :love:

Then today took the nephew out to run to Brod Bay. He made it there but run/walk back, which was all good. Still achieved main aim of burning a few calories.

Still recovering and no problem running the distance but no great pace/power. ;)

A 10km in two halves. Miscommunication with my missus meant the split was far too long, about 25mins... :(

Anyway, the first 5km was AWESOME! My little miss CJ came with me on her bike and set a pretty good pace in places. We bumped into Vert on the last leg of his brick day, it was good fun!

The second 5 was meh. REALLY meh. Heat, humidity, and really piss poor nutrition contributed.

Still, now only 30km to hit before the end of the year!

Lovely little 10ks out and back around Miramar Peninsula this morning. Not a breath of wind and hardly a soul around.... perfect running conditions.

Time to offset the Xmas indulgences. :D

I just logged on to Strava to log my 10km, and lo, there was your run! Good effort fella! PB 10km too by the looks of what Strava says. :thumbsup:

I did similar from home, but headed up the zig zag thing to the top of Conviction, and ran down that, then home.

Mine also clocked up my 700km since entering the Kepler Challenge.

Cheers!!

Yeah, even at a comfortable pace it was a 10k PB but that's only because it's been 6 months since I ran 10km on the road. It's too hard to set PBs on the trails!!

I need to stop being a slack arse... Tussock Traverse is only a few weeks away.

What a nice looking run! Well done. What was the go at 11/12? Tough section? I have to hit the trails again, too much road lately.

And me? Na. Left my head in the clouds! Lmao. Ask anyone who knows me. Ha ha ha!!!

I don't think I am going to make 20+13 though. Bugger it.
