Fun night run

Yesterday took the day off, went to bed too late on Sunday.

This evening after work, I headed out to the conservatory and did the 3 laps that I have been doing in 10:06,9:36,9:48, then the last 7 mins of the run really pushed the pace really hard effortwise, I probably did did a mile in 7:15, dont know for sure, but the effort was there, finish the run in 45 mins. Then stayed there looking for the menu, ha!! if you know what I mean! beautiful women there!:)its inspiring to see a lot of people exercising and doing something for their help, that push me to train harder and never quit exercising (running in my case), that makes me a better and happier person without a doubt. Tonight I was very greatful that I can run and exercise, not a lot of people can! Have a great night folks!! I do have scheduled a predawn run for tomorrow since I wont be able to run at night due to the finance course, I am training for a 5k, so I CANT sleep in!! Cheers!

Morning 8k with family

This morning woke before 7 a.m., I went out to the mirador with my father and brother to do 8k, my brother was doing 10 x hill repeats, He has a corporate event that He expects to win. My father and I did 5.2k , then waited form him to finish the repeats and encouraged him, then when He was done We ran home to complete my 8k. I wan watchless since He was using my watch, I felt weak at the beginning, then kind of loosened it up. A good week of training, I ll keep like this, I did not eat fried food this week, so I am heading the right direction with one of my goals.  8k to cap the week.

Have a great Sunday!! and dont get drunk:)

Catch up

Yesterday I ran early in the morning at 6:00 a.m., did the route that I did on Tuesday, I did it in 44:45, felt good overall, but I am feeling really tired these days due to the out of form state, well everything was going fine, but I was feeling terrible at work the whole day, when I got home at 7:00 p.m. I just lied in bed and fell asleep till today morning, I was feeling good today, but decided to take the day off from running out of caution, if I was sick, then a run would not have been wise. As I type this I am feeling pretty good and I ll continue my training tomorrow, 5 days a week of running is not bad, the consistency is coming back. Hopefully I ll keep feeling better and better.

Have a great weekend!and dont get drunk!:)

Morning run with father and setting goals

This morning woke up at 7:30 a.m, since I am off from work, Headed out to the conservatory to do the 3 laps route that I do when areas of the conservatory are closed. When I started I felt tired, I think the return was going to be easy, but its not gonna be, I ll have to sweat a lot to get there. Anyway, I ran 47 mins total, got to the conservatory with my father and waited for him from the conservatory to home. I felt tired as I said,hope that improves in the next few days. The weather was very hot, but I am glad I got out there!

I wrote down 4 goals for the remaining of the year:

1) Give up the fried chicken and fried food till December.
2)Lose 10-20 pounds as a result( that might take a little longer than December)
3)Train hard, smart and consistently
4) Get a better position in the work force.

These are the 4 goals that I wrote in a paper sheet and is next to my bed,so when I get weak, I look at it and the motivation comes back.

Heading the right direction

Woke up really early today at 5:30 a.m., went out to the conservatory at 6:00 a.m. and headed out to the conservatory to do the same route as yesterday evening. Soon when I started the run I realized that I was tired, so I just did 2.5 laps of yesterday´s route and that took me 38;51, dont know the exact distance, but I am glad that I headed out the door to run, you never regret a run. Need to keep up this momentum!!

Catching up

My plan did not work out the way I wanted to last week, because I wanted to run after work on Thursday and Friday, but that did not work, left work way too late!!I ran on Sunday in the morning with the brother and father, I threw a couple of surges there, but my form is sloppy and I am ridiculous fat, I weigh around 192 pounds, with is too much compared to my PRs time( 150 pounds), I have decided and wrote it down to cut the junk till December and train hard and smart and see if that can help my weight. I did on Sunday 37 mins for around 6.2k or so, the last 500s was in 2:02, my brother ran 1:23, He left in the dust, wow, anyway, a lot of work to do. My mindset changed from Yesterday, looked at me in a photo of 2009 and then looked in the mirror, with the face like a watermelon, I said that I neeeded to change that, if I want to become a coach some day I need to use myself as a guinea pig in the experiment, I need to get in shape and be an example. Maybe I wont do 21 mins on December in the 5k, but I ll take care of give my best and if I dont get that goal this year, at the beginning of next year you can do it.

Yesterday did not run due to the inhability of running in the predawn, had my finances course at nigh.

Today after work I headed to the conservatory without a watch and did 3 times the loop that I ran when areas of the conservatory are closed. Dont know the time but I felt good and the pace was easy.

Have a great night!!

Predawn running

The predawn running continues. Today I run at 6:00 a.m., when I started did not feel particulary good, but then I just got into a groove and the run was good. Like last year, the conservatory was closed in some areas, so I could not do a complete lap, but invented a route that took me around 43:33 mins today, Felt very good and satisfied at the end. As I type this I just got home from a Finances course, and now I am doing the loundry, no rest for the wicked man! Have a great night everyone!
