All over martin luckie park. Well, a small section of it. We (Zesty and the Space Creature of Doom (our ultimate team) played Dirty Creature. And beat them 12-2. Which means that we're still top of the social league, and play 4th place (currently Dirty Creature again) for a place in the finals next week.

First run since Xmas morning today so plenty of hurt going from town up to Tinakori hill.
Swam 20 lengths to cool down so I guess that's my first training for the alp d'huez (sp?) half iromman in July - That's the plan anyway :cool:

Saw a dude doing singlespeed repeats of Weld street by the looks. Awesome effort as he looked as though he was doing it pretty easy.

Ran to Tongue point from the quarry carpark (22 km) yesterday in 2:15. But judging from the way my shins feel now :0 I think I need to do more base work.. I was gonna have a bash at the Tararuas race in March but think i'd better do a few less arduous ones this year if I want to survive training as I haven't run intensively for a few years.

*dredge*

Seeing as I haven't had an MTB for a few months now, I've been getting my singletrack action on foot. In the past week or so I've had a couple of really nice jaunts out in the ol' shoes...

Last Thursday I hit a 1-hour loop from WTP, along to Mt Lowry and Down Rata Ridge, returning via the mean streets of bro town.

Today I had a mint run - I started at the same place, and headed up along Rata Ridge to Mt Lowry, but this time dropped down to Eastbourne via the Ferry Road and Kaitawa Road tracks - I've never negotiated anything as steep or techy as the Kaitawa Rd track, it was awesome! From Lowry Bay, I headed around to Pt Cheviot, and back up the hill to Rata Ridge again, before dropping back down to where I'd started 80 minutes earlier. :love:

Kaitawa is better in the up direction, try Rata ridge, Mt Lowry trig, then head along the ridge towards top of Wainui Hill rd, then down Cheviot, then south towards York Bay and either up Kaitawa or into Days Bay where you have a choice of Ferry Rd, Koromako Rd, or Kereru track (furtherest) to get back to the ridge.

That's my back yard too, see you out there :)

Sounds like a fun route - will give that a bash when my quads have recovered. I've been up Ferry Road before - as part of the Crazyman recce I did a couple of years back. I remember it being steep, but much more straight forward than Kaitawa Rd. I'm scheming to link up Butterfly Creek with WTP via a bunch of the tracks in the area though - might need a few more weeks practice before I go trying that!

My ride plans for yesterday were torpedoed, but I got out for a lovely run instead today - 5 hours for 25km! From the Orongorongo Catchment carpark, along 5 Mile track, then up to Mount Matthews. Lovely views from the summit at ~940m elv - we got to see what cloud looks like from close up. The slide back down the hill was awesome, with oodles of sliding and slipping on the wet roots, combined with the uber steep gradient! :cool:

A+++, will definitely trade again. (Maybe when the skies are clear?!)
