It was a gloomy overcast day today. Certainly nothing new about that on the Kapiti Coast lately although yesterday was lovely.
I like to include hills on my long runs as it is a great strengthening endurance workout. I headed for the Maungatukutuku Hills as is customary and after a 2km climb to the top enjoyed some gentle ups and downs along the ridge line before descending back down across SH1 and home. On the homeward journey there is some lush country farmland that the farmer has allowed me to use. I'm glad that I don't have to run home along the highway. I have included some farmland shots of the return trip. Due to the cloudy weather I decided I would wait for a better day to show off the beautiful tracks I run on and the magnificent views.
As you can see from the greeness of the grass we get more than our fair share of rain.
