If you’re like me, this is the time of year when you’ve got more bananas and passion fruit than you know what to do with.
I’ve been mixing 500 mL boxes of coconut milk with about 75 cm3 of chia seeds to make a pudding.
I knew my preparations for the recent Krabi International Trail race were a little unconventional. But I had some hope that they would be effective.
Naturally, when running at latitudes within 10° of the equator at elevations below 2,000 m, it is going to be hot.
I took a long train ride across 6 degrees of latitude. Bangkok is about 13 degrees north, so I’ll call this a narrow road to the slightly north.
When I got to Bangkok, I went straight to the snack aisle.
On the Fourth of July weekend, I might normally have a barbeque. Perhaps some potato chips too. This year I decided to mix up the menu a bit, so I skipped the potato chips and went for snacks with a higher protein content.
I’ve been cutting back on the potato chips recently, and doing a bit of running. Last weekend I was up early on Sunday to join a large crowd in Surat Thani province for a 30 km run through the beautiful Khao Sok National Park.
And I use some in the Pickwickian sense. Or I could call it quadracious. With 5.9 km this morning, I passed 2015 in total distance. 2014 still sets the standard, but I’m going after it in the year/s ahead.
