” FIND YOUR LIMITS, AND EXCEED THEM!” -selected
Last Sunday, I was able to register in the Condura 42K in ATC Alabang and I’m glad I did since I’m a regular participant of this event yearly. Twelve of my running buddies here in Laguna will also join, and as early as 2 am on February 7, 2010, we will invade Skyway to run the full marathon.
This will be my 8th 42Ks and 74th races in my 3 year career as a runner.
Also, my 2nd for this year after that unforgettable ’24 Hours Fat Ass Run’ in Clark last January 7, 2010.
And speaking of Race Schedule, I have only 6 races lined-up for me this year. Yeah, too few but very tough and challenging…
-Fat Ass 24 Hours Race in Clark -DONE!
-Condura 42K in Skyway
-BDM 102K Ultramarathon from Bataan to Pampanga
-TNF 100K Trail Run in Baguio City
-Independence Day 160K Ultramarathon
-Milo Elimination 42K in Manila
Quality not quantity. The longer, the better.
With those tough schedules ahead of me, I must devote myself in training, nutrition, sleep, rest and prayer.
No more basketball for me which can cause injury.
As a cross-training, I will embrace road biking, body building and yoga.
And If time still permits me, mountain climbing and Triathlon are on top of my list.
Reading good books and playing chess would be my mental training.
Some of my friends advised me to ‘cool down’ and I just told them, it’s my lifestyle. I can’t imagine myself not doing any physical sports in a day and perspiration for me is an outlet to relax and enjoy life as it is. Take away those things and I’m dead.
I have no vices whatsoever, just pure sports and books.
A boring life?
For in it, I’ve found the real treasure- THE FOUNTAIN OF LIFE!
See you in the Skyway. Don’t forget to bring your e-pass. : D
God be Praised!
