Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

20C

Been following the Haiti earthquake news. 200,000+ died. Situation is pretty grim there. Of course there are people suffering in this world everyday. But a big catastrophe serves as yet another reminder that life is short. Never know when it’s gonna end. Have to live each day to the fullest.

Went to a nice wedding of a friend (Oa) Saturday night at Windsor Hotel. Happy for the new couple. Food was yummy. MC’s were funny. Met some old friends. Good time.

Sunday destination was Suan Rot Fai. I woke up early and got there around 7am. Weather in the morning was nice and cool. So I sneaked in a very short run, wearing jeans and carrying a backpack. Nan and Noot joined me at the park and we took some pictures using a vintage film camera (very difficult to use!). Then we left the park at around 11am.

The sun made me exhausted so it was good to come home and rest. Played with my dogs for a little bit and took a short afternoon nap. The little one is in a poor shape these days. Very frail. Can’t walk very much.

Went out to get in an evening run around the neighborhood. Cars and street dogs were big troubles as usual. So I could only manage a half hour or so of a slow run. The dogs don’t like people running near them so I had to be really careful. Left foot is still hurting, so it was probably good to keep the run short.

It has been cold these past few days (20C). Perfect for a run. Did an interval training Monday. It was pretty tough. Good way to start off another week. Did an easy recovery run on Tuesday. Felt pretty sore, which is great.

There is an interesting 10K coming up Sunday (Walk and Run for Social Care @ Ministry of Public Health). Will see how things go this week and then decide.

  1. Roppon,
    I just stumbled across your blog via Google. I like that you use your blog as an outlet to share things you otherwise wouldn’t in life. I saw in this post that you mentioned you took an afternoon nap. Next time try using http://www.SimpleNap.com as an alarm clock. I use it for afternoon naps and like it, though some of the songs only work in America.
