let the fun begin...

early this year, i became a marathoner.

yup, i finished my first full marathon this year, but was not able to finish it as i wanted to.

team galloway (this was the same group i was with most of the first half of condura)


prior to the start of my trainings, i was not able to totally ensure myself that my ITBS has been "fully healed". i just thought doing my long runs with the galloway group suffice, but i thought wrong.
i know that i can finish my full marathon within the cut-off, but i sure would have wanted to finish it stronger and with a more decent time. my ITBS was not fully healed yet then, and it took its toll on me, making me walk after more than half of the route :(

now, i do believe it's time to do it the properly.

time to train right, time to train smart (coach!)

i will be complimenting this with my cross trainings and proper hydration and nutrition, PLUS tips from Adination UP (woohooo home court!)

(thanks Runner's World Smart Coach!)

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.…
