Mini road trip this week-end with @canae_nakayama . First stop in Takaharu at the onsen and then stay at @sumrsurf office on a unique and improvised « bed » 😅 🛹. This morning, teaching yoga 🧘‍♀️class for Canae with @riejourney sensei while I rode up to the local mountain 🚵‍♂️ and went for a run along Aoshima beach 🏝 Then back to @cafe.zeal for a healthy 🥗 lunch ! Nice to be back in Aoshima after a month since I moved. 🤙

Perks of countryside : grabbing some fresh water from the source during the ride.

One more trail run at Inohae valley. Absolutely no one all the way up and down.

They did a great job @cafe.zeal . Beautiful mezzanine and nice place to chill.

梅雨 長すぎ

Ciel impressionniste au dessus du mont Takachiho.

Met a celebrity on my short run today! From and to the onsen. Hot and humid but still bearable for a jog. (Still went first to the cold bath of the onsen) Not the same for my friends who did Seagaia triathlon this morning ! @cmaris and @aoshimachintao Otsukaresama guys!

Snorkeling and free diving in Ko-uchiumi with @sumrsurf a few days ago, water was not very clear but we could see a wide range of fishes.

My usual run from home. To the sports park and back. Fun thing : thanks to the rain season the track field was covered with mushrooms!

😋 Miam! Sazae BBQ ! from in

Trail running today in Inohae valley. Perfect weather we have here when rain season takes a break. I have a thought for my friends of Le Havre who are organizing the Le Havre Urban Trail races this week-end. Bon courage les gars/filles ! #ラン

Getting ready for some serious business!

Full bloom in front of my apartment! And for my friends back in France who asked what kind of car I own. Well, *cough*, here it is. That is a , mini-van or kei-van (kei = light/not heavy). To give you an idea, about 1.8m high and when back seats are down (which is always), I have 185cm in the length to put my stuff. Especially fine as my bike can fit in with wheels on. Max speed is ... drumrolls... 100km/h. 😅Which is never reached in fact as 90% of the roads are limited to 80km/h anyway. Yes, friends of France you are reading well. Which is a good thing imho! Kei-van or kei-trucks are everywhere in Japan, especially in the countryside area. They are economic and easy to fix (nothing to fix on mine in 3 years). There is basically no electronics involved, no computer or software onboard. Some hybrid version exists though.

Tried a new type of cross-training : surfing + running :-)

Evening foil surfers. And evening jog for me. Let’s enjoy this great time before the soon to come rain season.

I will be relaunching my old website/blog next week. I was looking for an illustration I could use and was not satisfied with what I got, so I tried myself. From a simple drawing and then used the Adobe Capture app. to create an svg file. It worked quite well I think. It makes me want to make a full “triathlon ” set of icons/simple illustration.

Surfing 🏄 Long/funboards ✔️ Skateboarding 🛹 longboards ✔️ Triathlon bike 🚴‍♂️ ✔️ Running shoes 👟 ✔️ Ok, we can go!😅 Week-end in Nichinan!

It does not look like it here but after 2 months away I am back in Japan, Miyazaki. Watching my friend’s son Kai kun doing some progress.

I made a new friend today. One of the last « wild » horses of Japan. They live in Toi Misaki, south of Miyazaki in a protected area. They were also the horses the Samurai were riding back then. Second time I visit the place and there will be certainly a third some day. Thanks to @kanae_nakayama for the picture!

Happy new year! Starting the year with some Dassai 39! Not my usual breakfast 😅 Let’s rock 2019! 🤘 Also if you are into Nihonshu, I worked a bit in 2018 on a service for a company in Osaka called which will provide a great knowledge service for sake. In Japanese and in English. Bookmark it! ;-)
