Back on Track

I wrote the other day about letting the SAD gremlins get to me, so yesterday I remained “er indoors” and did an exercise DVD and some strengthening exercises, but like the song says “What a difference a day makes” so jumped in the car and drove 10 minutes away to the Pauatahanui (try and say that after a couple of wines) Inlet. Actually I struggle pronouncing it at the best of times. A lovely day and 16 degrees a new place to run yippee! It looks pretty desolate but there’s a track around the reserve and a boardwalk through it with birdwatching keeps. Was so good to be out again, didn’t see much in the way of wildlife, bar several native pied stilts and 2 Canadian Geese, but come Spring, the place will be teeming and the houses up on the hill don’t spoil the peace and quiet. Happy Running everyone. 😎

Thank you I’d forgotten what warm sunshine felt like, you have the opposite problem. Keep cool

What a relief that must be for you, it has been so hot, I hope it stays cooler for a little longer. I grumble often (sorry) about the cold here at the moment, think you runners in the UK are amazing 👏🏻

Yeah but soon you will be all toasty and warm and we'll be moaning about running in the rain as only Brits can moan! 😆

It looks gorgeous there, Lexi! Glad you got out! 😊❤️🏃‍♀️

Sounds like we almost had similar running weather for once today (though the temps here have crept up a bit to the 20’s now). Just think how you’ll be enjoying the warmer weather while we all start moaning about it being freezing! 😂❤️

I’m looking forward to summer, I hope its as good as yours, I read today that your heatwave could go on until October - crikey! Yes its a lovely area, my late Mum and Dad lived here in a place called Whitby, I used to love driving round the bays to visit them. Enjoy those summer days for a bit longer I hope. X

Thanks Flick, those blimmin gremlins they creep up on me, but yesterday did my head and heart good. Its a beautiful place and I’ve decided to run a new area once a week with photos. So many places, so close and I run next to a railway track? 🤔 hmm! X
