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!

Thoughts on life (and death)

First of all I want to thank god the opportunity be here once again, not everyone has the opportunity nor value the opportunity that god gives then. Why I say this?

On Sunday when I was having fun with my father and brother dancing and hearing to music outside  in a place called " la zona colonial", a lot of people gather together there. When the party was on, it seems that a guy fell down and collapsed, the 911 lasted too much to arrive, the guy was took  out of scene with the eyes open, We all thought that He was drunk or something like, that after a while I just went to the bathroom and saw that the 911 guys was getting the guy in the ambulance, well after around 30 mins, one of the singer gave the news that the guy had dead, therefore the event was suspended, We were like in shock man! You go out to celebrate life and you dont know if you are coming back home or are going to live the next moment, To suspend the event was the best decision because that shows respect for the family and the sould of the guy!

On Monday when I was at work I received the news that a guy that frecuent the bank and joked around with the employees there and joked a lot with me, I guy that I really liked, He was funny and respectful, plus We joked a lot with the female coworkers, the guy was dead on past Friday, I was in shock, more than the day before because He was a guy that We all met there in the bank, even other clients, that was bitter to swallow, I cant not believe that I ll not listen to his jokes anymore. Very Very sad.

So my conclusion is why people get obsessed with external posessions and forget the basics about life, dont get me wrong I dont want to be conformist here, but I just notice that people often strive to only improve economically and dont improve as a person and spiritually. Anyway, I am just greateful that I can run,smile , walk, live, breath, every single day. Try to be the best person I can, so if I die there wont be regrets!!!

Life can be taken in a second, but if you live the life full of joy, then it wont be regrets!!

Runningwise I did not run yesterday, but yesterday decided that I was running in the predawn today no matter what, was going to run today for my friend Floiran and the run was going to be dedicated to him. I went out today at 5:55 a.m. to the conservatory and got there in 7:50, then did 4 laps in 6:29,6:32,6:21, and in the last lap I was feeling so good and alive that I decided to increase the pace a bit, I almost scream in joy, I was just greateful to be able to run and to be alive, I got home in 39:36 for 6.5k, I loved this morning´s run since I had a lot of time without running predawn, I m looking for tomorrow´s predawn run. I just want to train hard because I can!!

Running is awesome!! Have a great night everyone!! and be greatful for everyday you are here on earth!

Mad at myself

Had not run since Tuesday, I am getting home pretty late from work, and I am not running in the predawn so those days are DNRs. I am pretty upset with myself because I weighted myself yesterday and I had 192 pounds, one month ago I had 181 pounds, Man, I am eating a lot of food, and training very little, today I headed out at 10 a.m. to the conservatory to do my lately bread and butter run 6.5k, done in 39:58 feeling like shit the whole way. Good!! I only have 2 months till my goal race in December and I have taken advantage of time, I wont write anything so that I dont look like an idiot when I again do the same thing ( 2-4 days of running per week that wont take me anywhere). In my opinion to reach your potential you got to run minimum of 6 times per week. That when I ran all my PR´s. Need to start taking(writing in this case) less and taking massive action to accomplish my goals, not only in running but in other areas as well. At least I took action today and ll be satisfied runningwise until tomorrow!! Hope you have a great Sunday!

Catching up

On Sunday I did 6.5k in the afternoon, 4 laps in the conservatory in 38:20, felt really good there to be honest. Finished very strong. Monday rest, honestly did not have nothing to rest from, but I did not run because I went to bed too late and I had classes in the afternoon till 9:30 p.m.

Today  I am off from work, so I did 6.5k at 8:30 a.m. , 4 laps in the conservatory at a very slow pace in 39:38.  I felt slow today, but after the run felt really good. I need to ramp up the frecuency and the distance run, if I keep like this I ll just do sub 24 mins on December 5k and my goal is more ambitious than that. I ll start running 6 times per week and will start eating better, that is the only way that I can get into that goal.

Have a great day everyone!!

Consistency on the go....

Today I went out running after work, at 6:55 p.m. to the conservatory to do the same route as yesterday, today was much cooler because the sun was absent, but it was hot nonetheless. Ran with a guy for 1+ lap, but then He stopped and I completed my last 2 laps by my own. Finished the 6.5k in 38:58. One second slower than yesterday, but was very consistent. Felt good at the end!! Have a great Thursday!!

Good run

Did not run Monday or Tuesday, Monday was a planned rest, but yesterday I was going to run after work, but got home after 8 p.m.  so no run. Today I am off from work, so I went out at 7:55 a.m. to the conservatory, did 4 laps there witht the watch on time of day, did 38:57 for 6.5k. Honestly I thought that I was rolling faster, but what can you do? Felt good overall!! Have a great Humpday everyone!!

And the running continues...

This morning was up at 7:00 a.m. and was out running at 8 a.m., with the sun shining hard, did 4 laps there in the conservatory and came back in 39:38 for 6.5k. I am running slow these days but that is part of getting the shape back. I am loving the running, but I will ramp up the training soon. Have a great Sunday!!
