Nationals Hit Out in the Bay - Day 2

Training near Fernhill, Napier
Day two rolled around and by the time we had the stovetop coffee machine on the go the sun was pouring in to the room... this was the weather I had been hoping for.

On the cards for the day was a heap of relaxing mixed in with a cruise on the bike to ensure the race legs were ready. After a long stretched out breaky Backy and I headed out for a 2 hour spin around the back roads of Napier, over in to the wine valleys and down to Fernhill. Even managed to get a bit of a tan glow going.

Ironman 2 was on the cards for the afternoon, but only after a few more coffees. What a movie, didn't let the original Ironman movie down and a must see for Ironman fans. By the time we rolled out of the movies the third member of the party, Jono had arrived up from a wet and wild Wellington day.

To top off the day we headed down to the Napier Port for dinner. What a dinner, fresh fish on a potato mash was so good that I didn't know how full I was until later on. By the time we left the restaurant I felt like I had eaten two huge meals. So worth it though.

Backy and Jono's vet races were the next day so they shut it down early to get a good nights sleep in before heading out to do battle the next day.
