Catch up time.
Up with the lark in Hanoi for a jaunt round Vietnam’s “most popular lake” before travelling later today. 3 laps.
Lots of walkers and cyclists and a fair few runners inter mingled with tai chi practitioners and others doing various strange forms of exercise. Great to see so many out in such a manically busy city....but it was 0540.
Was going to warm in to it gently but ended up being pretty steady throughout. Not too smoggy.
Met T after and wandered back via the early morning fruit market.
Pleased to have managed 13 x bike efforts, 9 x runs, 4 x kayaks and 4 decent length walks on this trip, not to mention a few swimming gestures and plenty of additional wandering time on foot. All this constitutes more than expected in 5 weeks away. The crazy nature of some of the places and the climate rather meant expectations were set fairly low in the first place though.
Still getting right Achilles gyp but lack of routine has meant the exercise routines have only been sporadically followed and therefore have somewhat suffered. No Delhi belly of note either which has been great and also probably unexpected,
The change in temperature is going to take a bit of getting used to.
