New Years Day

A pretty quiet New Year's Day this year. We just had some of my in-laws come round for lunch. Today should be more eventfull we are off to the beach.

Spent a good part of the morning putting the first coat of stain on the outside table. It'll definitely need at least a second coat but I'll probably give the top surface a third.

Even though I'm doing the staining outside I definitely needed some fresh air after that so went for the first run of 2010 immediately after. Just a short one following the same route as our "big" walk the day before.

4.29km / 21:28 / 5:00 min/km

Big King Reserve is a dog exercise area. Plenty of people out with their pets which was good to see. I even had a four legged running companion for a short stretch. Four legs are faster than two.

In the afternoon I tackled the job which I had been putting off. That is cleaning all the crap off the chairs that go with the table. Absolute pig of a job which took a good couple of hours. They have scrubbed up well though and are ready for staining this morning though.

After dinner headed off for a bike ride round Cornwall park, local streets and then down to Onehunga and along the Waikaraka cycle way. Good fun.

27.2km @ average speed of 23.4 km/hr

All in all a good start to the new year.
