I feel funny.

After my DNF in the Alpha Trail 50K, I knew i’d be going to rehab – for therapy.

It never happened though.


After a few consultations – I started my strength training. . . then I joined Team Cavite ESE’s Challenge, again.

For a clearer picture of the challenge, allow me to explain further. (you can’t do anything anyways if you will disagree)

Last year, for the month’s of October and November 2013, we’ve had the same challenge. A 260-km Challenge. Simply put, it’s a challenge to complete 260 kilometers via run or walk in the shortest possible day and time. :)

Simply put, too, I bagged both month. I completed the October Challenge in 3 weeks, and the November Challenge in 2.

Now, April 2014 Challenge is a 300-kilometer Challenge. I am not in the best condition. I am having a lot of pain POST-RUN…

BDM 102 is not your ordinary fun run.

The result will show the unprepared.

Had a meeting with JC Igos, the runner I will be supporting for this event. I will be his navigator.

This is the 2nd time at the same venue. The 1st time was a meeting for N2N 55K, where he end up as the champion.

Partly, we discussed the crucial parts of the route where a runner might get lost.

I am attaching here a map I made. It’s the most accurate so far.

Study and memorize the route.

See you at the Finish Line.

Nice Article, Runner’s World!

Yup, I agree.

To beat the Holiday’s fattening season, a MILE a day is good enough.

…and that’s exactly what I plan to do for December. Daily Run – no matter how short or how fast.


It’s the streak of all streak! LOL


Just Completed


This morning, the 14th of November, I was able to complete the 260 kms Challenge.

As of this mornings run, total mileage is 260.95 kms from November 1 to 14, 2013.


All thanks and praise be to the Lord God Almighty!

Last Month

Just last month…

I bagged the first place for the Team Cavite ESE 260km Octoberian Challenge.



The challenge is fun.

It is also to my advantage since I am training with high mileage for my big event next year.

1376461_10201541475593278_1222974790_nAbove image is just a peak of how the race progressed…

But A. DABULL came in 2nd while J. SOLEDAD came 3rd. Yes, somebody flew so high with a very high mileage!

All thanks to the generosity of the RD JC Igos who took patient time to tally everything and make update almost daily.

For November, I am still in the lead with 41.5 kms remaining as of the morning of November 12, 2013. October took me 3 weeks. For this month, we can never tell how the others will fare from today. I am just definite that by the 15th of November, I am already finished, again. :) A good record for my training.

All glory, honor, thanks and praise be to the Lord God Almighty!

But I like it a lot.



November has 4 weeks…and 2 days of Holidays to start with. :)

100 kms per week is doable and I have a BIG plan for this month.

I will also supplement my running with weights starting this month too…

that means I need more supplement for the body to cope up!


It’s a plan.

…and I like it!

God bless this one!

Yes, I really thought of a 400-km mileage for November. It’s my Birthday month too! I will turn 42.

Pwede na mag.marathon? !?



the micro of it all:
(per week)
1 long run @ easy pace
1 hill repeat at least twice a month
1 long intervals or repetitions
1 tempo of no less than 30 minutes
