Running


RandomHero

Recommended Posts

Whats goin on BMs. I have a fairly unique question. Were I to stay in one of the hotels/condos in the jomtian area and decide to go for a run in the morning (between 0700 and 0800) along the beach road or the jomtien area in general what is the likelyhood of getting hassled by FLs or the like.

 

As I understand Jomtien is slightly more chill than Pattaya proper and this information would heavily influence my decision as far as accomodations goes. Yeah I'm going to the LOS to have as much fun as a twenty something with too much money can have but I also intend to adhere to some kind of workout regimine.

 

Any advice?

soi dogs will be your worst problem but look at that as an incentive to run faster :)

 

seriously though you surely aren't worried about a few freelancers are you ???? just stop and take a couple back to your loom and make them your work out it will do you more good than a run on the beach.

I can't say about Jomtien, but last time I stayed in Pattaya I ran to the beach and along the beach road every morning and was not hassled by anyone. I think if you are dressed like a runner, move like a runner, and act like a runner you will be left alone. Running is a great way to get to know the area.

Awesome thanks I kinda figured running would be a good way to get a lay of the land. I've yet to go to LOS but is the traffic pretty light on beach road in the morning?

I go running on both Pattaya Beach Rd and Jomtien Beach Rd. I usually go in the evenings. You do have to keep your eyes open and dodge people as you run but it's never spoiled my run for me. As for free lancers.... I actually look for nice looking one's while I'm running. if I see one I mark the spot on my GPS and make sure that I finnish my run at that spot. You get a few comments from FL's as you run but always friendly. You can have a quieter run at Jomtien but Pattaya Beach is better located to where I stay.

I really appreciate all the info guys. Maybe if I'm feelin real adventurous I'll do the whole 8 or 9km distance fromt jomtien down pattaya and back. I doubt that very much though, gotta keep a little fire in the kettle for more rewarding activities :GoldenSmile1:

It seems like we run similar distances (I run 5 mile/8 kms) In that humidity you will sweat a real lot. usually my vest and shorts are soaking. I usually get a MC taxi to take me back to the hotel for my shower but i usually tip the riders a little because they have to towel the seat down after me. An extra 10 Baht is usually enough, once I gave an extra 20 Baht and the next day they were waiting for me to finnish my run.

Damn, I keep hearin about these dogs. Well how about this: anyone know which hotels in the area have the better Gyms? Or are their any good Gyms in Pattaya period that cater more toward the serious lifter? Gotta keep what I got. Like my coach said in high school "Gotta do the curls for the girls" haha :question1:

Jomtien beach road around soi 7 does have group of aggressive ladyboys up and around until about 6:00-7 AM put if you are running it won't be a problem, they are waiting for drunks wondering around

My son came over in late november and ran jomtien beach road every morning for the 10 days he visited and never had a problem. I thought he was crazy as he always left around 6-6.30am every day, but he enjoyed it and said the road was good at that time.

I've run in the morning around 8 AM or so and no problems with dogs or anything, though people are milling about.

 

Here's a map: http://www.thaiwaysmagazine.com/pattaya_map/pattaya_map_jomtien.html

 

I ran up and down that road right next to the beach on the map where all the hotels are located, from the police station at one end and to the other end where Jomien Holiday is located. I'd say it's a little over three miles one way thought not sure.

I run down beach road everyday and have never had any problems...the FL's will smile and give the loving look, but I'm ussually plugged into my ipod so no conversation. My only minor complaints are that sometimes there is quite a bit of pedestrian traffic you have to dodge around and be careful of your footing, there are many areas with uneven sidewalks, steps, holes etc... Also, after a rain there are many flooded areas on the sidwalks which puddle up and make it difficult or impossible to get a good run. Ideally, I like to zone out while I run and use it as a time to think and enjoy my music. I find that when running on beach road it is hard to get in the zone because of the environment and all the distractions...not always a bad thing, but I do miss some of my old running paths back home...running on hard concrete is getting hard on my old man knees and joints.

There is actually a very nice running trail / vita parcours at the buddha mountain between pattaya and jomtien. Take the road up from the new go-cart place and you should see. Very nice and quiet, no ladyboys nor dogs.

Just an idea, but you might try going to the bottom of Thappraya Rd and turn right at the 7/11 and head that way, had some nice walks there (can't run any more due to knee injury in my Army days).

Not much in the way of car fumes to choke on.

any update on your runs in Pattaya/Jomtien? I'm also a runner and was hoping that I could run along a quiet beach in the morning.

I always run by the beach as a warm up for my gym work out. I run in the evening between 6-7 o clock. Lots of locals on and by the beach so have to look up not to loose speed because of dogs laying around and kids who are crossing your path . Newer been hassled though...

 

Sweating? Oh yeah! Looks like I have jumped in a pool with my workout gear on . Pools of sweat around me in the gym.

Why not run on the beach itself, it would be better for your knees?

Walk along J every morning, the want to be your "girlfriends" are long gone bye 7 or 8 am. Enjoy the best hour of the day IMHO.

I would say in the Jomtien Area, Dongtan Beach is probably the nicest place to run. This is the beach when the road comes to Jomtien Beach, you turn turn right where there is no traffic at the 7-11. No traffic is allowed before 5pm, so it is a good place for running.
