Been up to…

“I don’t only miss running, but everything attached to it…”

After the staggering first international full marathon at HK, I was out of running shape with low or zero mileage for the next 4 months. Though my last event was RUNEW at Alabang(4months ago) where I got a new 10k pr with my VFF.

After the race w/ the guys. 47mins 34secs 10k using VFF

There were lot of things happened that somehow lost my motivation in running race events. And additon to that, a lot of factors made me even more lazy to do training runs. The new role at work, the summer escapade lazy mode and some complicated personal matters. To sum it up, negative vibes came in and seriously broke my passion in running. And I know that shouldn’t be the case…

FFS if not running

On the positive side, I still keep myself fit(lol) and make sure not to ruin my running fitness level once I decided to RUN again. FFS, what have you been up to?

A Runner’s Circle thursday fun runs
Yep, I still run sometimes… Marvin the Martian invited me to attend ARC run one thursday. They cover 5km and 10km with designated pacers for free. These running community is compose of very friendly runners having the same passion in running. On my 1st time to attend, I got a new 10k pr(unofficial), ended up finishing 3rd and I think we broke that 45min barrier.

Marvin(2nd), Edgar(1st) and me(3rd)

They give out freebies to placers, free running advices and raffle out SHOES.. yes SHOES! Thanks ARC, definitely worth attending… 🙂

Core/weight training and summer escapades
As we’re on the peak of summer then, I still continue to find what I’ve lost during college, my abs. LOL! After doing this secret workout for the past months, I dropped down to 10% body fat at 165lbs. There you are, totally found them again! lol. A combination of core weight training followed by high intensive interval workout 3 times a week. It was really deadly but results were amazing.

Buko sa beach = Stress free

Pacer duties
I also did a couple of pacer duties on some small running events. During these pacer duties, something sparked inside me and remembered the things why I was hooked to running… I think everything’s coming back once again and I hope this will continue. To continue what was left behind, goals not yet met and to continue motivating others…

I will reach my goals someday… someday!

Now, the journey continues…
