After literally months of man-flu, the warmer weather of Waikiki saw me well for the first time in ages *touches wood*.

Set off in the hottest part of the day for the 13.5k round trip to climb the 232m high Diamond Head that dominates Waikiki.

I was a little cautious at first as I've really been a couch potato for a good while now. I needn't have worried it felt great!

I really pushed it up the hill with my quads only just beginning to complain on the final set of stairs, so I was very happy with that. 

The views from the summit are simply stunning - I have no words (or photos either as I didn't think to take a shot with my iPhone) to describe the twin wonders of both the natural and man made beauty that is Waikiki. It really is a magnificent city. I did however lug my SLR up there, so I snapped away like Royal paparazzi!

Felt so good, I jogged back down. It is so good to feel healthy again. Now to make it last!

Felt like I really earned my chilli cheese dog & fries lunch - God bless America :)
