Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

This week I have friends from California visiting. They are on a 2-week vacation visiting Laos and Thailand. Their first time in the two countries. They visited four provinces in Thailand: Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi, and Bangkok. Tomorrow they will fly back home. I hope it has been an enjoyable trip for them.

These days, our lives are still revolving around hospital visits. Nan is healthy and I am doing my best to avoid going to see yet another doctor anytime soon, but our close family member had to have a surgery. Today we went to Siriraj hospital to visit him. The operation had turned out well, thankfully.

After Siriraj, I went to Chatuchak weekend market. Walked around, bought nothing, got lost a few times. The place is like the city of Bangkok. Messy, but colorful.

Not much new development on running. As the pain flared up, I’ve been back to not running and back to taking painkillers again. Going to do a light jog tomorrow, which will be my only run this week.

Can’t train the body much, but been training the mind to live consciously. It’s been interesting to (try to) be aware of my thoughts and emotions at all time.

A consciousness of wrongdoing is the first step to salvation…you have to catch yourself doing it before you can correct it.
