VR.......

I stumbled upon hitme's blog and noticed that no one seems to be doing the VR's anymore.... I thought all the while that everybody was still doing it but forgets to post or at least say hi to the other VR runners.

Well today, I did it again... This time I'm not pounding the metro roads, nor am I doing my usual almost suicidal counterflow runs through Makati and Kalayaan overpass.
I woke up at 3:45am, prepared my usual gear. Did my usual morning rituals.... 4:30am I'd be heading out on the street for a good 30 minute warm-up bike to Pasig.

Destination: Ultra Oval Track.

I would be at the track by around 5am and do my workout. The only thing that's new this time is that it takes more time for me to do my warm-up, stretching and cool-down this time. :) I'm now starting to be smart on my training and runs. No more unscheduled runs, nor the usual double suicidal long runs.... Well I still haven't done any so.... I guess I'm still craving for it. The only thing that didn't change is that I still end my VR at 7am. Does it count as a long run????? :D

How did you do your VR today???

Pain Free Training

At long last!!!! Coach JoAr and I finally found the workout that works for my recovery. Pain free and cardio busting workouts that test my limitations.

Up-Hill and Stairs Training

I'm now on my second week of recovery/strength training. I still miss running for an extended period of time and distance. (insert dreaming scene here: LSD session) I just wish I could run flat out on the next race.
