My training is on track for Northburn Station Ultra Marathon. A month since my last Blog update I have managed to stay on track.

Our Wednesday hikes up the volcanoes of Auckland has increased from 3 to 4 now that we have added One Tree Hill. Slowly but surely I am able to run up most of them now.

Saturday, we are now doing 5 volcanoes. We start by walking/running from Mt Eden to One Tree Hill then on to Big King followed by Mt St Johns, Mt Hobson and then back to Mt Eden to run up to the top. I can't quite run to the top of it yet without a walk but getting close.

Sunday, we join the girls, Michelle, Cheryll and Denise and head off into the Waitakeres to tackle some tracks. The hardest by far has to be the one that we did last Sunday Te Toiokawharu as it was so wet from all the rain and dangerously slippery. It was a tough weekend as I really didn't want to get up early and get going but it had to be done. Thankfully, we survived!

I try to keep up with my training on Thursdays with Mike but had to miss last week. Looking forward to this week though.

I have to say, there are some amazingly beautiful places to visit in Auckland and I'm enjoying getting out and about.

Until next time...
