After a quick breakfast I was happy that the forecasted thunderstorms were postponed later in the afternoon. After some forest hike I had to get on some stairs this time it was 1200 steps down the hill. It was fun and I was almost running like the other people training there.
I then had a coffee break in Ngaruawahia before hitting the cycle path to Hamilton. It’s right after my lunch break that I experienced the NZ shower. Suddenly the rains starts to pour down like crazy for only a few minutes. It was so much fun and really refreshing. I also had an Airbnb room booked so didn’t care about getting wet.
