all out

ang galing lang talaga with running, you get to realize a lot of things, be it DURING a run, or even after.

last night, while i was participating in the Mizuno Run Club/Clinic, guess what! i realized something again! well, not naman as if i don't know it, pero mas concrete experience lang this evening with regards to giving it your best, all out kumbaga.

the session (Sept.17) was all about speed. for the second session, the drills we did were all targeted to ideally help us use more of our core muscles, and shempre the leg muscles (like the quads, hams, etc) to help us speed up.

(or para maging batak parang ito)

for those who haven't seen us doing our drills, one might say that we look stupid, or even childish. we were a bunch of adults who were in a "park" playing.

when they should be doing the DRILLS!

it was fun, and at the same time, it has its own purpose which we (well, I do) know.

after the drills, we did the usual route, running around BHS first 2 rounds (the average time per round would be the basis for the second "set), then rest then 1 round but the time should be faster.

[eds note: first set was 15:37 so around 6.40 per round? then the second set was approximately mga 6:30ish ata, or something, basta i got faster.]

so okay na diba. after that the next round was sprint todo.

in this segment, i didn't have any specific game plan (not unlike the other rounds where, i could just go and do negative split). this round was to test my ultimate "speed."

before i went for it, i shempre had to "power up"

(thanks to Gatorade our sponsor :) )

shempre ako naman, go lang. ;) tamang tama, gamit ko ang aking mizuno wave elixir 4

( saktong sakto para sa mga ganitong speed workout kasi magaan sha
at tamang shoes for mild overpronators like me)

while i was running all the way, initially i felt that i can manage it, pero half way i told my other RUBUs (running buddies) that it was malayo pala. i didn't imagine it to be that long, lalo na when you are doing the all out todo sprint.

when in the middle of the strip, i felt i was lacking air na rin, as my lungs weren't as used to running at that speed,
breathe in, beath out (wax on, wax off)

so it had to find ways on how it can expand (the lungs ha) so that it could give me the necessary boost towards the end (kasi nga naman, konti na lang eh).

so ayun, i was already experiencing some kinda shortness of breath naman while during the first 2 rounds of the running drills (as i wasn't been able to run at that speed again) so medyo transition stage talaga again.

in life (and in running), one has their own goals, and purposes in life and that each has their own ways of letting themselves fit into place. nature has its own mechanism on how to make sure that for one to achieve a certain goal, there are things that one might have to let go, even if the mind thinks otherwise.each has their own place in time, and that we might not be able to initially understand why things happen, but eventually we will. life has its own ways of letting us know why things were taken out of our systems, but in the end, we all know that it's for our own good.



after nung "all out" exprience eh, back to normal na ulit :)

cool down

and picture taking galore!

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.…
