      The Taniwha half marathon (Waikato River Trail run - Mangakino - Lake Whakamaru Christian Camp). Great scenery on a perfect warm sunny day. Running on forest tracks, gravel tracks, over swing bridges and dams with lakes, farmland and forest in constant view. Must admit, much tougher course than anticipated.

    • Mangakino Stream - Colour


      <b>Colour version.</b> Canoeing on Mangakino Stream off Lake Maraetai, Mangakino, New Zealand. Completed in the 1970s the dam, that formed Lake Maraetai behind it, flooded the area including the lower reaches of Mangakino Stream. This resulted in an easily navigated waterway with deep water and amazing steep and tall rhyolite rock cliffs on either side. <a href=";size=large" rel="nofollow">View On Black</a>

      In one section ahead the native bush resounded to the calls of the native Tui , Bellbird, Fantail and Kingfisher. Drifting along in the canoe was like being in heaven.

      Tough event but awesome trail run. Great scenery through the volcanic plateau. Great downhills, hard inclines and every surface imaginable.

      Judging from your HR, you did an awesome job! Which exercises did you do?

      • glynn_taylor


        we usually start out with 50 push ups, 50 crunches, 50 ladder climbs and 25 burpees or similar. Then combine sets of cardio (200-400m runs) with upper body strength work out. Throw in boxing and core strength exercises and you certainly feel buggered by the end of the class.
