With crazy traffic, air pollution, limited open spaces or parks, heat,
humidity & often no beaches for miles,
SPORT in S.E Asia can be a challenge! Posting since 2009, these are my stories of cycling, running, swimming, football, cricket, cross-fit, rock climbing, adventure racing, street chess
& many more sports in S.E Asia; including Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Malaysia & Sarawak, China, Singapore, Borneo, Bali..and a few adventures from my home town in Western Australia.
This is really one of the best Sunday morning cafe rides in the city! Around 100kms (or can shorten by turing around at the second toll) out and back on Quoc Lo 13 (taking unnecessary risks),doing some good speeds with one of the many groups guaranteed out....some with their own motorbike support clearing each intersection as we run reds. The banh mi at phu cu'ong was the best I have ever had. This old chinese area of Saigon specializes in roast duck and pork. Great way to end a ride!
I had a great day out tagging along with Fleur and the AIS team to the inter-school sports carnival at the main stadium in D10 on Saturday. The minute I walked in I had flash backs to 'little athletics' from when I competed as a kid. I got right into it and found myself standing on the seats cheering along all day! Quinn did some field sports like medicine ball throwing and jumps. She also ran the 800. This was my favorite race in high school. Its a very strategic race and I explained to Quinn and Rebeka the importance of saving some energy the final lap and coming home strong. ( A negative split). The girls followed instructions and competed well considering they had minimal training.! The school overall did excellent and really punched above our weight!
