kite surfing at kohi

Summer weather and that awesome holiday feeling seems to have hit Auckland hard in the past couple of weeks. The North Wharf and Viaduct bars are really busy in the evenings, people are having Christmas parties, work seems to be slowing down… And the beaches and waterfront have been really busy with people!

On the drive home each day we pass multiple people cycling, running or walking. Even on a busy day Tamaki Drive beats the motorway hands down, watching the boats out on the water and people out being active instead of queues of cars.

On Wednesday night I ran through Mission Bay and Kohimarama and spotted lots of different summer activities – volleyball, stand up paddleboarding, kite surfers and rollerbladers – in addition to the usual evening runners, walkers and cyclists. I even had a few smiles returned from other runners which is rare!

Its been challenging to keep myself motivated to get out and run alone since finishing up with TempoFit and after the half, so I’ve dragged the triathlete out for a few runs recently (generally run-walk as my legs are a bit niggly). He commented on ‘how hard’ it was to start running again after not training for a while – I laughed and told him now he knew how I felt trailing along behind him only six months ago! Hopefully he’ll start training again soon – injuries suck!
