Be Agile!

Fitness, and life too for that matter, is about being agile. When you find that you cant achieve one of your goals, dont just bang your head against the wall harder - take a deep breath, step back, and formulate another plan. This doesnt mean that you give up at the first sign of adversity but it does mean that you dont waste time in a no-win situation. Dont give up on your goal, look for other ways to achieve it - brainstorm, brainstorm, brainstorm!So my shoulder started really limiting me about a year ago. Surgery didnt help but a...

You dont see self serve fountains like this in Laos!!!

I now have a layover in Tokyo and although I was momentarily tempted by the deep fried tempura I opted for this incredibly healthy sushi. OK, I know brown rice would have been better than white rice but I didn't want to cause an international diplomatic incident by asking a professional sushi chef to use brown rice. My guess is that would be about as well received as asking for a bottle of catchup...

Starting long journey home

I'm smiling for TWO reasons here. The first is that I'm within 39km of completing my trip. The second is that for the first time in two weeks I had a normal poo! May not sound like much of an accomplishment but when you've been as sick as I have while cycling, its reason for a party :)Now starts my 72hr flight home. I have a 16 hour layover in Bangkok, a 6hour layover in Tokyo, and a 4 hour layover in Seattle. About as horrible a sequence of flights as it's possible to come up with but it's the...
