Christmas 5k Photos!

 
                             I just passed the halfway in this photos, I was very tired at the time :)



           To be honest this is the coolest photos that I have ever seen of myself in my running life, I was digging very deep here, just about 300s to go.

24:01

Twenty four oh freakingg oneee!! that was my time in today´s Christmas 5k. To be honest I wanted to run sub 24 mins, but I thought that I would do that at the drop of a hat!! just did not happen and I ended up missing my goal, anyway,, I ran watchless and just raced and ran by effort, I let it out every onze of energy that I had for the day. According to the results I did the first half much faster than the first, 11:29 the first half and 12:32 the second half.

I was in a good position in the halfway, but then when I turned around , people starting passing me right and left and I could not do anything about it. I tried to run with a woman but She dropped me little by little, the last 600s were a struggle. My friend Jose that was cheering , gave me words of encouragement but I just very spent, I just could maintain the position in the home stretch, I could not move any faster, I gave my by effort and I am satisfied with that. I need to train much harder if I want to see the times going down.

At least I improved my time of last 5k by 43 seconds which is a step in the right direction. I need to keep training consistently and I am confident that the times will go down. Its good to race watchless since you only race and dont worry about going too fast or too slow, you just run and thats it!!

Have a great Saturday!!

Shaking out

Wednesday and Thursday were off, just could not run at night those days.

Today I just wanted to run very easy because I am racing the christmas 5k tomorrow.  I went out to the conservatory at 7:30 p.m. and did 3 laps outside the conservatory and back home in 39:17. The pace was very slow, just getting the blood flow. The weather was awesome and the conservatory was just crowded today because of the " LIGHTS PARK".  No big deal I just was cruising easy.

Have a grat night folks!! Tomorrow I ll do my best!

Watchless meditation run

Yesterday I took the day off as usual.

Today I got home earlier than usual so I went to my run earlier than usual also. At 6:45 p.m. I headed out to the conservatory watchless, and I ran 4 laps outside conservatory at an easy pace and I honestly can say that I felt really good. But honestly I have to say that I have not feeling very well since yesterday for reasons that I dont want to discuss in this blog, this is only for running blogging only :) The whole run was basically thinking about that and meditating about life in general, I need that run to be honest. so around almost 8k watchless.

The weather was awesome and I felt really good physically.

Capping off the week

Today I woke up a bit later than planned, was up at 7:30 a.m. after a long night in the club, drank a lot of soda and I thought that I was going to feel good in the run. As soon as I started up, I felt like shit and was pissed off because I did 6 laps in the conservatory very slow and feeling like crap( thats why I race without a watch) laps were in 6:24,6:18,6:14,6:09,6:10,6:01, then back home to finish the 8.5k in 52:30, first  half in 26:58, second half in 25:32 or so. Definetely happy to have run, but pissed off because of the way I felt according to the splits. At this point I should be running a lot faster with much less effort. I ll race on Saturday Christmas 5k, I have not done any speed work, but will run my best. I hope to do sub 24 mins which is mediocre to my oldself, but faster than my last race, I should improve a lot by next year, if I mantain this consistency of course.

5 runs again this week, but runs generally short. No more complaints!!:) Have a great evening!!

Predawn run

Today woke up really early at 5:15 a.m. and was out at 6:00 a.m. to the mirador and did 8k, the first lap was 24:19, second half in 22:08, the last 3k were in 16:16. Felt better in the second half and very loose, the first lap was like waking up from sleeping, all in all happy that I have run in the morning since in the afternoon/evening I was going to be in the swimming pool and could not run in the evening, so predawn it was. I did 8k in 46:27, closed really fast and the weather was pretty good.

I am training consistently but despite of that, people keep telling that I am fat or getting fatter, I dont have an idea right now of my actual weight, but maybe I have not decreased weight a lot.

Have a great Saturday night!!

Very crowded night run

After work today I headed out to the conservatory at 7:05 p.m. and did 4 laps outside the conservatory at an easy pace, I did not surge or accelerate today, I just wanted to take it easy. I got to the conservatory in 7:54, then did 4 laps outside in 8:03,7:52,7:45,7:38. Then did 7 mins flat to finish in 46:13. I felt really confortable and good. But the park was very crowded and I pissed off a couple of times since I had to dodge a lot of people and cars, especially in the first 3 laps. However, I am glad that I can run consistently. Weather was just fine!

Have a great day!
