project training wheels

project training wheels day 2.

this session egged us to have 2 things with us.
1. own helmet  (for our own protection) and
2. cycling/biking shorts (with butt pads) to eliminate the sore butt after effects

so far, ellen & i were able to accomplish item #1
project training wheels class picture
ellen (with rudy), timmy (with spyder), carins (specialized), raff (giro), karen (bell)
second row: brando, chelly, cindy, tracy

go go power rangers?

unfortunately, we weren't able to accomplish item #2 as ellen was busy winning 2nd place overall at the recently concluded Camaya Coast Aquathlon

 team secondwind's JC Pineda taking 1st, while team endure's Ellen Encinares taking the 2nd spot

initially we planned to get bike shorts at the nearby bike stores in BHS, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, ubos yung size for ellen, and wala silang cycling shorts with padding for me.

for this session, we had a new classmate

coach pio with new classmate, master cindy

and new assistant coaches
"coach" raffger

"coach" karen

other bikers/ spectators were also present, namely carina, tracy, wilnar, and chelly the belly. brando also dropped by to take the photos (all photos in this blog entry were taken by brando, except the camaya pics).

this session's main goal was to help us gain more confidence in riding the bike, and at the same time, have practice riding on our own.

another special session we had that day was how to change/ remove tires
this was a concern raised before, specially for those who don't have a big car that would fit the bike.

some more pics from the second session

student bikers on the loose!

as the day progressed, we tried riding the road bike
after the day's session, we had the usual class pictures

after dinner on our way back to the parking lot, our beloved coach was approached by an old lady asking him what happened to him. all the while we thought that coach pio knew this lady who asked him, but no, she was a complete stranger! :) hahahaha :) ibang level talaga si coach.

one last class picture.

as per coach pio, the next step is to GET the BIKE!


  1. the kenkoy biker soon to be born! ;) get the bike na kasi! kahit bulok na parts... importante umaandar! ;)

  2. naku! medyo malaki-laking project na yung next step!

  3. Get a bike soon! :D
    But for the meantime, go, Team MTB! :)

  4. That's one off the bucket list :-)

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.…
