first time mo? (reposted)

this entry was originally posted in my multiply account last April 5, 2009.

just wanted to share. (para matrigger ako sa next entry ko).

"this entry was written yesterday, pero nag loko ung connection ko kagabi kaya hindi ko sha na post. pag pasenyahan nyo na lang ako at tinatamad na din akong mag edit. hehehehe.

"today started on a weird note. well actually it started last night when my internet connection was going boinkers on me. initially it was connected but then after a few minutes, i was not able to connect at all, even if all the 3 lights of the modem were lighted. i guess i took that as a clue for me to sleep earlier than usual (because i was not going to run early the next day, and that, it was too early to sleep kasi nga wala namang gimmick the morning after.) buti na lang stress at work were so dami, and i was able to sleep soundly. (sobrang soundly na i wasn't able to turn off the modem, the lights and the radio! patay!). so there.

tapos for some weird reason, i was awake na by saktong 6am or even earlier ata. it was so weird for me to wake up that early, kasi i knew wala naman akong lakad sa umaga, yung pag hatid ko kay kookay (youngest sister) ko was mga 10am pa, AND yung supposedly takbo with lauren eh sa hapon pa daw.

sobran weird talaga to the point i texted my fellow noisy boys that ang addict ko nga, kasi ang super aga kong gumising. (and those who were awake at that time replied agad na oo nga addict ako hahaha -doc T, red, at chelly).

tas while in sabogness state, biglang nag text itong si hoffness, saying sorry daw na di na daw sha takbo sa hapon kasi nga sa umaga na sha takbo kasi daw hinatak sha ng nanay nya at tita. parang ako naman, hmmm. teka, diba gising na ako? why not have an early morning run instead of a hapon run? heehee. ako naman, boy bibo, sige lang, fight! hahaha :) (wala nang kain kain alis na agad!)

tapos, naisipan ko rin, since si hoffness naman nagsabi na ibreak in ko na daw si wave inspire, so sige, why not diba? fight lang. masubukan ng light running lang bago isabak bukas sa moa LSD ni pojie.

so yun takbo takbo around up, etc. tapos naman ang lola lau, tigas ulo, sinabihan ng doc wag gaano tatakbo, ayun, takbo pa rin! kaya dahil sa pagod na daw sha (at mabilis DAW ako), sabi nya walk na lang daw kami last round.tas since nangako ata ako sa kanya ng taho (kasi di daw sha pwede mag taho tomorrow) sabi ko last round, libre ko sha taho.edi yun, nakakahiya naman kay hoffness diba if small taho lang,so we got 2 big taho tas ung lakad lakad, kwento kwento.

then all of a sudden.....


small

raindrops keep falling on our heads.



apir! slowly okay lang kasi nga ambon lang, tapos nung malapit lapit na kami sa kung saan man naka park sila (at kung saan nag aantay ang kasama ni hoffness, eh unti unting nararamdaman ko na tila lumalaki na ata ang patak ng ulan ah. sakto naman din, na si lau eh patungo na sa kanyang mga kasama, tas ako naman eh lumiko na sa mala-kagubatang parte ng UP, ayus! ang lakas na ng ulan! as in! panalo talaga. kasi wala na akong choice kundi tumuloy ng pagtakbo kasi nga wala na ring masisilungan AT wala rin pwedeng tambayan na may bubong. takbo lang. haha.

ayos naman palang tumatakbo sa ulan. masarap. refreshing. isang pagkakataong bago. ibang feeling din kasi. ang kulit lang with this is that, while we were walking/talking, na bring up din ung topic ng pagtakbo sa ulan. ayon, sakto, umuulan, tumatakbo. panalo. apir!

sa pag-uwi ko, naisip ko, ang kulit ng ganon, tumatakbo sa ulan, at lahat ng tao eh nagtatago sa mga waiting shed, kasi takot mabasa. ako naman, basa na ng pawis, bagong ligo ang pakiramdam kasi para akong nag sshower sa harap ng mga tao.

sinabi ko nga din kay lau, "ninang na ang tawag ko sayo ah" kasi ikaw ang nagbinyag kay wave inspire, pati sha din ang kasama/ witness sa pagbinyag sa akin sa pag takbo sa ulan. hahaha.'

dami ding firsts, first takbo with lauren, first takbo using wave inspire, first takbo sa ulan.

hanggang sa uulitin! :)

apir!"

since this post, madami nang first time na nangyari.

i've always said to others (well, sa mga runners) na ang first time nila would always be memorable. until now, this holds true pa rin naman.

a new entry on another first time (in 10 years) will be coming..... SOON!

Maximizing Potentials

Running has always been my favorite me-time activity. It does not only help me clear my mind, it also helps release toxins from my body. Even though running has been my 'sport' and therapy since 2009, I still have not maximized my potential with this sport.

Tonight, I tried to rekindle my love affair with running by jogging (yes, jogging, the slower version of running?) around UP acad oval. I said to myself, just one round of continuous jogging, and I'm done. Mahirap nang mabigla ang katawan, baka may sumakit pa kinabukasan, etc. So I did na my slow jog, and as I was getting into the groove of things, it slipped my mind that my intial goal was only to do one round.

Slowly and surely, the endorphins started kicking in, and I was trying to shuffle my feet faster, slowly increasing my pace, but still a managable one for someone trying to get my groove back. There have been times when I felt a bit of discomfort, maybe because it has been quite a while since I last had a decent…

why do i hate mizuno

Mizuno sucks. BIG TIME.

yup. you read that right. why?

point #1: they are not a mainstream brand.

mainstream in a sense that they don't even have well-known product endorsers unlike other sports brands around the world. i mean, how can they expect their products to sell like pancakes if they're like that diba?

point #2: they do not promote much of themselves.

not much print ads if you'd ask me. i work in a magazine publishing company and i don't see much of their products splashed all over our magazines. i don't see them having television ads too. not even in the newspapers does mizuno have anything that will lead people to buy their products.

point #3: the products are not that "fashionable."

as compared to other "mainstream" brands, you won't see your regular juans and marias wearing mizunos together with their jeans to the office. you don't see them usually wearing mizunos when they go around the malls, walking, shopping, chilling out. nope.…
