Ran the Bangkok Half Marathon this morning. Started at 5am, ran most of it in the dark, but some nice views of the bridge and the street lighting for the King's birthday (looked like Xmas lights but better!). Ran a time of 1:27:44 for 30th place overall and 7th in age group. Pretty pleased with that considering the training but really struggled in the last 5km and really had to fight my brain not to quit! Very pleased to finish!

First long run in a while. I had forgotten how much the sun can affect me when it's out, even at 8am! Was seriously tough going after about 10km, when despite being a "comfortable" run, my heart rate shot up to 175bpm. I think I need to get up earlier if the sun is out! Ended up being pleased with the speed though, bring on Bangkok HM!

I think I've managed to link up google+, twitter and facebook using "ManageFlitter" site. But seems to be sending old posts at the moment. If this one gets through then it works!

Just watched "Johnny English Reborn". At 32 years old, I haven't grown up as much as I thought...

Saw a Malaysian road traffic accident sign saying "Tragedi" #malenglish

Success at the Bangkok Post 10.5km run yesterday. Personal Best time and 2nd in Male 30-39 category (behind a Kenyan guy who was 6 whole minutes ahead of me!)
Worried that updating social media after races may appear somewhat smug, but at least by using G+ it won't be seen by quite as many people! (no offence G+...)
See my running log for details and GPS map, if you're interested.

Running in the Bangkok Post 10km International Run tomorrow morning. Absolutely no chance of winning though - the guy who won it last year was only 2 minutes slower than Mo Farah in the Olympics!! #bangkokpost   #run
