The 51st Week

This week of the year is something. For some cool reasons…

#1 I was able to complete and achieve the target of 1,500 kms for the year. Hence, I have no choice but to raise it up again for next year.

#2 I was able to run again after last December 6’s KM-0 to Tagaytay LSD.

That’s 6kms in 49 minutes and 12 seconds, an average pace of 8 minutes 12 seconds per kilometer.

For someone who loves to run everyday, a day or two is an eternity. A whole week is a real forever. I have tried to run last Sunday (12.13.09) at Makati with some of the regular peeps from Takbo.Ph. After 46 minutes of easy strides, I have to quit and give-up. The pain was something not tolerable. Not funny. My mind started to wander at the very on-set of the pain. How am I to run the 32kms Rizal Day Run if I have this pain?

Hopefully, If the easy run will continue to be pain-free, Im off to a good run again, soon!

  1. Coach could it be the shoes? I heard those actuator lugs easily fade, can you check? I was actually surprise when you used newtons on our ultra 2 sundays ago. I usually go for a more cushion/softer shoes when doing lsd…hope your OK now.

    1. it’s the speed, I think, Sam. I’ve used the shoes on a full marathon at PIM, and I’ve had a good run. But it’s also possible that the lugs are really pummeled to it’s maximum tear. So far, I have had a good recovery work.out for 2 days now.
