As you can see there are no real shortage of hills in the Auckland suburbs.
Today I started what I hope will be a weekly training run over the next few months.
From work, out to the beach and then back again. Today I dipped my finger into the water when I got to the beach, with the hope to do a regular 1km swim in the coming weeks. The weather has been pretty crap again this week in Auckland, so was not too eager to get out but even though it was wet out and rainy, it wasn't too cold, and to tell you the truth, the water at the beach didn't seem too cold either.
Keep posted over the next few weeks to see how I go having a swim.
