Long Run 1 (Run w/ the masters)

When: April 17, 2011
Distance: 21km
Training: 21km

First week of training and all I can say was “whew”. Speed on Tuesdays, tempo run on Thursdays and Long run on Sundays. This race would be my first long run on my training calendar and all I need was a consistent 5:15 pace. 🙂

Again, the route would be along roxas boulevard which is also a big possibility where the 35th Milo Marathon will be taking place. This would be good training and the best way to start my long run #1. I won’t be hard headed this time and will just follow the pace on the training program. Together with Alpha1 Rolly and a running buddy Rodel, we maintained a 5:15pace consistently. There were a lot of times my legs wanted to speed up especially approaching the U-turn slot where you see a lot of runners ahead of you. (hay, gusto ko sila sabayan). Anyway, as we reached km 12, I sped up a little, and then a little more, without noticing I was already running at a 4:45 pace. The thing I hate about myself is being hard headed boy.

Eugenator pace… Yahoo!

Alright, I still pushed the pedal to the metal and sprinted all the way to the finish line. Sarap tlga tumakbo feeling magppodium ka! haha!

Finished 1:42:30 and 53rd out of 490 runners. It should’ve been a PR but the route was 900m short. I still clocked an average pace of 5:05. (Tigas tlga ulo) tsk tsk!

With the Team

W/ Alpha1 Jayson finished 13th place 10k

Congrats guys on a strong finish and welcome Marvin and Jayson on your debut run as an Alpha1. Kudos to the organizers despite the short route but still giving us a good and inexpensive race! Goodluck to our Philippine Team Athletes(Masters) as well.
