cardiac attack

montalban trail LSD was the first time i joined a trail LSD, and back then, i was still a newbie.
i believe that to be a well-rounded runner, i should also incorporate trail runs in my training, even
it means waking up earlier that usual just to get a chance to run the cardiac hills route. the cardiac hills was already been "visited" by other members last year (2010) and i thought, i should be able to try this one out already.

the long and winding road (part 1)

the cardiac hills presented its challenge last yeara and i thought to myself why not try this one out. despite having lack of sleep (slept at 12, and almost got left behind because i woke up at 320 when our meeting time was 320! wahaha), i still pushed through with it.

the guys were at jollibee paseo de sta.rosa as early as 430am ata, and we were able to get there at around 5am. after arriving (as most of them were already warmed up and stretched), we then had a briefing on the route, etc, had a count off of total number of members running, etc. prayers were said, and off we go!

its hard to describe the route as it was a mixture of road, trail and rocky cemented roads.

here are some images taken during the run :)chill uphill run for julie as this is her second time to run the route
this time, she was determined to finish it running for most of the time

wondering where the name "cardiac" hill came from.
wala namang na cardiac arrest siguro while running this route, right? :)

one of the numerous group shots taken during the run. this one was shot while waiting for the others to arrive. (another excuse to slow down and run chika pace :) )mizuno run club boys represent!
(pero check out the shoes, hindi mizuno? tsk tsk tsk)

paging marketing peeps of mizuno, trail shoes please? :) heheheno one gets left behind.
walkeroo & kenkoyrunner made sure that the other knew where we were headed :)
saan kayo pupunta? DOOON!!!! :)

"jill" got the better of "jack" this time

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.…
