This amazing coconut concoction was most definitely included in my own running nutrition plan this weekend, along with various vegan buffet outings, egg and avocado banh mi's (the ubiquitous sandwich over here, with the added bonus of avocado), tofu/veggies/rice take-aways, fresh, juicy fruit and the many tempting sinh to's (smoothies to those back in Oz or UK).

Also included in my running training plan this weekend was one moderate/shorter run followed by my first 'long' run back since my recent stint in hospital. Not a 'long' long run, by previous standards, as it was only about 16km give or take, but I'm cautious of building back up slowly, despite feeling 'back to normal'. So far: so good! Which is promising.
The rest of the week has flown by in a hectic blur of work/writing, teaching, commuting around Hanoi by bicycle, and a few other new projects. Also got some much overdue KARAOKE in this week, so you know it was a great time. I'm still yet to track down a karaoke joint in Hanoi that has a decent and wide range of English songs, including but not limited (of course) to: King of Wishful Thinking (Go West) and other awesome 80s classics, 90s tunes such as the quintessential 'Respect' by Erasure, Taylor Swift songs (ahem, don't judge me), and a few other recent chart-toppers. (Hmmm, I like to think I have an eclectic taste but I guess: 'to each their own' is worth bearing in mind here.) If you're in Hanoi and you know a place such as this - please hit me up!! Let's get our sing-song on....
Have a beautiful week one and all, and if you've got any questions re: the Eat To Win: 30 Day Program for Runners - don't be shy: send them through to me here: firstname.lastname@example.org . I'd love to have you on board. It's going to be SO motivational and inspiring, and I can't wait!
