reminscing

i've been running on and off for more than 2 years already.  yesterday pala was my 2nd runniversary. kaya pala ako kating kati tumakbo. there was something inside wanting to run again, for the sheer joy of running ;) medyo alanganin pero totoo hehehe gusto ko lang tumakbo kahapon (other than the fact na i wanted to try out the new mizuno wave prophecy). pero since my training sched yesterday was to bike, i went biking/spinning pa rin.

i just used my wave prophecy to work today.

initial reviews from other bloggers are consistent with what i felt.

it was bouncy. not a nice way to describe it primarily because it reminds me of my old




adidas megabounce+ meet mr. prophecy.

upon initial feel of the shoes, it had the same feel with the megabounce+. mataas ung heel elevation nya. somewhat it had a pseudo-forefoot running feel primarily because of the elevation nga sa heel. the ride naman is smooth also. the 4 "holes" of the full length infinity wave plate has the same effect nung bounce circles, it kinda pushes back the feet upon impact :) although i havent tried it for a run yet, same ung feel nya. mas flexible though ang forefoot ng bounce+, you know that this shoe is intended for a) porma or b) superb cushioning ang habol :)

one major mlamang of the the prophecy is that mas solid ung bottom nya. unlike sa megabounce+ na hiwa hiwalay ung ilalim per "roll" of the bounce thingy.

well, i guess i have to take this shoe for a short run to test how it really is, compared to the a) megabounce+

and b) wave inspire (my favorite weapon of choice).

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.…
