PM - after a day of museums and relaxing in the park - I finally got out for a 10k before dinner.  Ran around Rembrandt Park and Vondelpark.

AM - finally made it to the Olympic Stadium which was open (enough) for me to hop on the track and do 4 x 800 with a 400 rest/jog.  Averaged 3:13 per rep.  I was the only one on the track and there were maintenance workers adjusting the sprinkers on the infield - and I sort of got the impression that maybe they were just tolerating my presence, so I decided not to do any more 800's though I had thought about doing a couple more. Decent workout.  Last day here in Amsterdam.  I head off to Asia tomorrow morning for the next week, with several stops.  Going to be a challenge running-wise.

AM - 4 miles really early in Singapore.  Heading to Indonesia for the weekend for golf excursion with business colleagues.   

PM - 8 miles in Bintan Indonesia - the first 4 miles or so on the beach after a day of golf and the last 4 around a very nicely manicured path around a lake.   Encountered a monitor lizard and a monkey on the golf course.
