it's been a while

it's been a while since i last blogged. i don't know why, i don't know what made me stop doing what i love to do most (next maybe to eating, sleeping, and doing nothing/ resting). it may be the overwhelming fact that since i now work in a sports company, i'm bombarded with all sorts of running stuff for others (sponsored athletes, sponsored teams, national team members, celebrity endorsers, etc); it may be the infinity run hullabaloo (that until now, a lot of people are still asking us about it, etc) that i haven't had time for myself.

after the mizuno run club sessions and the infinity run, somewhat i had a burnout.

oh wag kang tumingin
ng ganyan sa akin...

sobrang no training whatsoever, kahit simpleng run wala.

it's so inspiring to be with my team na kahit hindi ka nakaka attend, supportado ka. sabi nga nila eh, hind kami PROFESSIONAL athletes. pero since this is a lifestyle, kailangang balanced.

time to hit the road, ride the bike and swim.

see you in NAGT. :)

time to load up my training.

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.…
