I spent the weekend in Wanaka and decided to make the most of two spare days by improving my fitness.
On Saturday I went up Mt Roy (that’s what the locals call it but maps have it as Roy’s Peak).
I was wearing walking shoes rather than tramping boots with decent grip and after about 45 minutes in snow and 20 or so minutes from the top decided that even with walking poles it was too slippery to continue.
The view from there was still pretty good.
Yesterday I walked to Glendhu Bay and back, a distance of nearly 30 kilometres which took about 6 1/2 hours.
Today my legs are letting me know I’ve had a pretty good workout but the endorphins that come from it more than compensate and I’m grateful for that.
