This poster pretty much sums up the last 24 hours of our travel. We just finished driving from the South Island to the very tip of the North Island into Tauranga (Bay of Plenty). The journey was rather “unique” you might say. Thirteen hours in the car, one mother in law in the back, and a delayed 4-5 hour ferry ride across the Marlborough sounds.
But we made it! We got in around 1am after leaving Christchurch at 7:30am. Actually, I am pretty amazed we made it in our little Honda. The hubs is a trooper for driving a stick shift through all the winding roads and hills, especially in the dark and raining. Yes, I was a bit nervous at that point!
Here’s a quick look at our adventure summed up in a 1 minute video.
Anyway, today is a new day and my legs were in need of some circulation after sitting in the car for 15 hours. Ever have a case of Traveler’s legs? I do! I’ve got the worst circulation in the world, even with compression socks. In order to get some blood flow to my legs, I ventured out on the roads with a Travelers Circuit.
Warm up with 1 minute of Sun Salutations
light jog for 1 minute
Faster run for 1 minute

Cool down with 1 minute Sun Salutations
Simple enough, yes! Works out the kinks? YES!!
Okay, I need a big time sleep now.
What’s your go to workout post Road Trip?
12/23 Earthquake Update: As you can see, we are very fortunate to have just missed the 6.0 Earthquake in Christchurch yesterday. I am pretty sure God had an angel watching over us. Some damage, no state of emergency though. Just a lot of people a bit shookin up again, including some of our family. Thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray for the heart and soul of Christchurch.
