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.

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!


I did reconsider.

Just last week’s Sunday, the 21th of July, I ran and walked 57 Kms from Luneta to Tagaytay City. I might repeat the same in the next coming weeks.

I will not be running MILO elims this coming Sunday.

Well, not that I cannot afford it – but that the registration fees these days are just not practical.

I would have bought a MILO race kit if an available one is found.

Anyways, best of luck to all the aspiring qualifiers!




Part of my MILO preparation (of which I am not yet registered as of this writing) is some crossfit exercises.

It’s challenging. I can’t say I like it – but I do love the sweat output.

What’s my favorite routine, you might ask.

See this list:

  • Vertical Leg Crunch
  • Mountain Climber
  • 8-count Body Builder
  • Burpees
  • Planks
  • Push-Ups
  • Ups
  • High Knee Raises

It’s not that challenging unless it’s all done on High Intensity.

I do try a lot of new work-outs from Tribesports – but only the realistically beneficial work-outs.


This 2 weeks from today will be full of it.

Looking forward to it!

Thanks be to God!

The Year that Was

Today, the 27th of December marks the last 4 days of the present year.

It’s always nice to look back and reminisce about the best of the things this year has offered.

January 2012 – I bagged one of the hardest buckle to get. 🙂

February is a slack.

March 2012 – I finished the 2nd Tanay 50K Ultramarathon. One of the hardest short ultras. (for me).

April 2012 – I finished the 2nd Mayon 360 50-miles. One of the hottest and rainiest event of the year. (for me).

May to July is a slack. Lots of peak-bagging, though.

August 2012 – I finished the 2nd Fort Magsaysay to Dingalan Aurora 60K Ultramarathon. One of the hardest road ultras too. (for me).

September to October is a slack. Lots of cross-fits though.

November 2012 – I finished my 1st CM50 60K category. One of the toughest trail ultramarathon. (for me).
