my run on 31-jul-2009

i ran for about 7-8km earlier around legaspi village here in makati. then yesterday, i had a quick run at the gym before and after the body pump class.

i have to go somewhere, so catch you next time.

i'll review the new nike plus website, gonna blog about the our group run at UP, and then some.

oh yes, i'm back on track.

yep. i ran 5k. then i'm planning to run at the treadmill tomorrow.

then maybe thursday with outednarnian at the fort. :-)

will log my miles soon too!

for the meantime:

"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."

a thought from Steve Prefontaine -- a long-distance and track 'n field runner.

you know you're a runner when...

I'm still on my running hiatus. Though i'm slowly gaining my momentum by doing yoga and body jam. I'm avoiding the landing on the ball of my left foot too! I'm gonna do RPM/Cycling classes by tomorrow, as well as going back to my usual body pump.

Got this from About Running.COM, You Know You're a Runner When... Enjoy!

Runners definitely share special bonds and sometimes have traits, habits, or idiosyncrasies that only other runners can understand. If you're a runner, you may be able to relate to or appreciate some of these descriptions. You know you're a runner when….
  • you have dreams about showing up to a race late or not wearing any clothes.
  • you've used an old race T-shirt to wash your car, dust furniture, or clean something else.(yes! i use my running tees for errands, or going home from the gym. i use my singlets at the gym too, or running days na 'di dapat porma...)
  • you know where exactly one mile from your front door is (in any direction). (i do! from house to don bosco church in makati is 1km)
  • your only recent photos of you alone are race photos. (my profile photos in social network sites do!)
  • you're not embarrassed to wear spandex. (and short shorts!)
  • you're always hungry.(this is a given.)
  • you no longer hate port-a-johns. In fact, you can think of a few times when you've been very happy to see one. (not really. hehe will use this only at running events...)
looking forward to the week after next! i'm gonna start running again!

oh-em-gee. it's out. nike lunar glide+ will you be mine?

i visited nike at boni high street earlier, and guess who (technically, what) i saw!?!?

theeeeeeee one, and theeeeeee only---- mister lunar glides+!!! (let us call him LG for short. gossip girl na gossip girl.)


photo credits to:

saw the tag!!! it's at 5,495php!!! 500bucks cheaper than what i originally thought it was going to be. it's available only at nike park glorietta 4 and at the flagship store at bonifacio high street. the nice (cute too!) sales guy told me they have only a total of 24 pairs in their store, a combination of men's and women's sizes. ka-looooowka! what will i do? where will i score 5-kyaw for this? huhuhu oh benefactor, where art thou? i will practically do anything (well, not everything) to get my hands on this pair. ha-haaaaay...

sana the heavens will heed my call. pramis, last na toh.

afterwards, met up blogger-runners mr @theo0629 (finally!) with @jamiedavinci and @outednarnian, and bloggers @mcvie and @misterheuge, at coffee bean and tea leaf. i had fun. i really enjoyed the night. thanks for the company!

p.s. theo0629, jamiedavinci and outednarnian don't forget. it's a date on aug15, at kenny's urbanite run ha.

yep,'m half-crazy now... on the brink of going crazy for working at home, and for three days (and counting) without gym or running. yep, i'm losing my marbles by just staring at my email, multiply, blogger, ym and facebook, and other what-have-yous by the internet. i'm really an extrovert.

i hope to report to the office tomorrow and go back to the gym pretty soon. so injury please, please heal soon.

it'll be 2 more weeks and 4 days till i can run again, my doctor says so.

oh, here's another running quote from joan benoit "Love yourself, for who and what you are; protect your dream and develop your talent to the fullest extent."

meantime, don't forget, there's a kenny roger's urbanite run on aug15 at 8PM at fort bonifacio. it's something new for the running community who's always waking up before the sun rises to join the races. i hope the ground won't be hot for this one. and to those asking --yep, the dynamic kenny roger's duo marc and rovilson will be joining the run.

Thanks to Jinoe (Takbo.PH) for the image.

i can't run for two-three weeks...

as i had a minor out-patient surgery earlier.

Yes, i CANNOT run or else blood will be all over the insides of my shoes and my socks drenched in red. That only means i'm not doing the Globe Run for Home, although I registered last Friday only to get the singlet and see how an RFID chip looks like.

That's two-three weeks without exercise. Not even body jam or body pump. And will only mean i'm gonna gain weight.

I wanted to share some photos of my wound, but i don't have any digital camera with me. My phone's cam is also busted.

Meantime, it's work at home!!! Yay!

And for the meantime, i'm sharing running quotes from Runner's World being emailed to me daily...

"As every runner knows, running is about more than just putting one foot in front of the other; it is about our lifestyle and who we are."
-Joan Benoit Samuelson

run with me some more!
