Running in Thailand 3

I had a much better run this morning! I was up and out before 6am. I had a good drink of water before I left and took a bottle of water with me. I felt so much better right from the start.

I don’t think I realised just how much the sunburnt took out of me on Wednesday’s run. Looking back I was struggling right from the start and the wise thing would have been to do a shorter run but we runners are not often the most wise!

Anyway it was really good to be running the whole way today and finish feeling good … very hot but good!

We had a really good day yesterday. Katrina and Emma went for a run at 6am. Then after breakfast we hired a couple of bikes for the morning and went for a ride. We basically did the circuit I ran on Wednesday finishing at Dolphin Bay Resort for a swim and ice cream.

There were only 2 bikes so we took turns sitting on the back!

This way round didn’t last too long!!!

After a rest in the afternoon we headed into Huan Hin about 3.30pm with a group from the guest house. Emma bought her bus ticket back to Phuket and then we did some shopping in a posh air conditioned shopping centre. Well to be precise Katrina and Emma did some shopping while I bought a map of Thailand and a book and started reading it!

We then had something to eat before heading over to the night market where we had a good look around. We bought a game called Kalaha which Emma has played in Indonesia. Emma and I also bought a key ring with our names on!! Plus some lovely fruit to munch.

Once we arrived back at the Juniper Tree we played our Kalaha game for a bit before heading to bed to read!

Today Emma heads back to Phuket and then flies back to Indonesia on Sunday. Katrina and I are heading into Bangkok for a night before catching the 8.30am train to Chiang Mai tomorrow.

So next run and report from Chiag Mai!!

    Sounds like you are having a wonderful time! Be safe with the heat and sun. Lots of water sounds like the answer.
