The Battle In Subic…

23 10 2009

Take the first step, and your mind will mobilize all its forces to your aid. But the first essential is that you begin. Once the battle is started, all that is within and without you will come to your assistance. Robert Collier (American motivational author, 1885-1950)

After the QCIM, our next target is the Subic International Marathon tomorrow at 4pm. Another 42k in just 6 days…

I only did some practice after my QCIM:

Monday -biked 1 hour and 10 minutes

Tuesday -lifted in the morning; Muay Thai in the evening.

Wednesday -ran 10 kms. (very slow)

Thursday -biked 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Friday -ran 7 kms (tempo)

Saturday -will run another 5k before we leave for Subic at 8am. 42k will be at 4pm.

Sunday -will join again the Adidas Kotr 21k


Last Monday’s recovery biked…



As I ran this morning…



I have no game plan for tomorrow’s marathon. I’ll just listen to my body but finishing it within 6 hours is a great consolation.

Speed now is impossible.

I’m excited to run my first ever in Subic and also a marathon to be done in the afternoon.

See you there at the starting line.

God be Praised!

Did you know…

… that today is Thailand Chulalongkorn Day? This public
holiday commemorates the death of King Chulalongkorn the
Great, who abolished slavery in Thailand. The King died on
October 23, 1910.
