Fighting the Hedge

Hit 26 degrees in Auckland today. Not as bad as Melbourne, Australia where it was over 46 but still warm all the same.

My wife has been on my case to trim our hedge. We moved in March 2008 and well its grown out of control.

I spent a good couple of hours in the sun - with my trusty hedge clippers - attacking the monster. Here's a photo:

You can see the height on the neighbours side - its a good indication on the before. The after-height is still over 3m! A different sort of cross-training indeed!

Went for a short run at 5pm before washing up. Still very warm - 25 degrees. 5.5km / 24:30 / 4:25 min/km. The banana smoothee I had on returning hit the spot.
