Short run with a fast km

As I said in my previous post I ran today at 5:00 p.m. because I was off from work today. When I went out it was very hot and felt very full,  I had not digested food yet eventhough I ate at 12:20 p.m. the run was a struggle to be honest. Did 4 laps in the conservatory in 6:09,6:08.6.19,6:15, the last 3 laps were with  Jose. The stomach was very upset, I finish the run in 33 mins. Then after around 1.5 hours later another guy called Gian that I met several days ago, came to us and invitus to do a lap to warm up before the body weight exercises. That mas is fast, He got out very fast and I had to work hard to keep his pace, Jose and him built a gap on me and at the top of the last hill (within 500s) I sped up hard to match Gian, then We ran head to head to around 150s to go that was when I sprinted all out and beated him, did that km in 4:18, that felt much faster than that, I was dead and started caughing very hard for around 30 mins after that, if you dont use you lose it and that was what I exprienced for not training at fast paces. I could not do any strength exercises just watch them do it and caugh a lot.

I need to work on my speed and v02max, it seems that those are very low.

Have a great humpday!

Zapping the zero

On Monday I just got out of work too late and was feeling weak because as I said earlier maybe a food that I took in did not set me well. In fact, I went to bed that night at 9:10 p.m. which is extremely early for me.

Yesterday I got out from work too late too, but I decided to get the run in anyways, I headed out to the conservatory at 7:40  p.m., got the conservatory in 7:29, was feeling very good and fresh, then did 4 laps there in 6:03,6:00,5:47,5:35. To finish up 32 mins, so a short run but a much better than a no run at all. Then stayed there talking and laughing with a group of guys till around 9:10 p.m. so my day dont leave up too much free time. I felt very good yesterday, but my stomach bothered me at times.

I am off from work today and will go to the conservatory earlier today maybe 5 p.m. because I want to do some bodyweight exercises with the guys out there. Stay tuned for tonight´s post.

Short run to finish up the week

Well I could not run on Thurday, that day off drag Friday and Saturday as well, and almost skip today as well, but my friend Jose was on  his way to the park and since He counted on me, I decided to go out at 6:25 p.m.. To be honest in the first 2-3 mins I felt like s#%t, thought that I was going to collapse, then felt a bit better, but as soon as I got to the conservatory in 7:35( thought that I was going much slower), my stomach started cramping and I felt like a Sumo fighter, did 3 laps there in 6:11,6:10,6:05, the cramp was too big that I had to call it a day at 26:33, I was hoping to do one more lap to finish in 32 mins or so, but the stomach had other plans. I went to the bathroom around 3 times before going out and again during the run it bothered me again, so something that I ate must not have set me well. I felt really good in the legs and lungs so that was a bonus and definely that was better than a no run.

Hope you had a great Sunday!

Faster evening short run

Today I got a bit later than planned from work, so I headed out around 7:15 p.m. to the conservatory, I was going to do only 30 mins, but since it was going to be that short I wanted to do it faster so when I got to the conservatory in 7:26, I decided to do 4 laps faster than my normal pace, splits were: 5:30,5:25,5:14,5:04. In the second half I guy bited the dust when He fell down off a skateboard and rolled a couple of times in the pavement, I helped him to stand up again, lost a couple of seconds, but no biggie! I felt a bit tired, but at the same time felt confortable, because I was going fast but no lactic accumulation so I was happy in that regard. The weather was good and I did around 5.5k in 30 mins.

Have a great night everyone!

Good evening run

I headed out today at 6:55 pm. to the conservatory in 7:46 very easy, then did 6 laps in 6:15,6:07,5:56,5:53,5:57,5:44 or at least that is what I remember, anyway it was thereabout. Completed the 45 mins. The weather was good and I felt better as the run went by, I just had planned to do around 33 mins, but given the good I felt after the first 2 laps I decided to complete my regular run.

Have a great Tuesday!

Zapping the zero

Have not run since Thursday so Friday, Saturday and Sunday were off. No reason in particular just rest on Friday and that rest day dragged the other too, what a discipline!

Today I was back at it at 6:33 p.m. that was when I headed out to the conservatory, I left work today earlier than usual, did 6 laps in the conservatory in 6:09,6:05,6:04,5:42,5:51 and 5:32, completed the 45 mins. Felt good and somewhat rested. The weather was very good today, I barely sweat today!

Then talked with a couple of guys, including one spanish guy that they do bodyweight exercise and offered me to join them, I might do it since I am not doing any upper body work.

I really enjoy going to the conservatory at that time, very good atmosphere there and good place to know new people.

Have a great night

Consistency is on

As I said in my previous post that I posted around 5 hours ago, I went to the conservatory at 6:20 p.m. and did 6 laps there very confortable and at a very good clip, it seems that when I work I get home very tired, today as I was free from work, I just felt great and fresh out there, got to the conservatory in 7:31, then did 6 laps in 5:59,5:51,5:49,5:46,5:44,5:46. Completed the 45 mins, felt good out there, the only problem is when I finish I have my groin bother me a lot, dont know its due to the overweight or the sweaty clothes, but I pretty much limp on my way home trying not to get to annoyed by it. The weather is behaving well! its going to live on the caribbean, I have heard that people that live in the US are having a hard time to train outside to the extreme cold out there! You kind of feel impotent when you want to train but encounter those conditions! thats awful!!

Have a great night foks!!
