Coming back once again

Well, again with 10 days with no running, to be honest this was more lazyness than lack of water, but both had to do with it. oh welL! I thought that today I would feel bad and out of shape and the plan was do only 5.5k to get back into the groove, but when I started running and the kms passed by I felt better and better and added 2 laps to the plan so ended up doing 5 laps there for a total of 7.5k feeling pretty good. I was surprised the way I felt today, I felt really good. 7.5k total without a watch!! the weather is cooling down!! Have a great night!

Good morning run alone

This morning was out alone at 7:30 a.m. or so, to the conservatory, did 6 laps at a progressive easy pace, the latter laps were faster than the first laps, felt better and better as the run went by. Did 8.5k without a watch, its great to run by effort. 4 days of running in a row, not bad at all for my consistency, I hope that I build a good base of consistency, I need to do a race soon to push things a bit. Have a great Sunday and happy running!!

Morning run with father

My day off from work was today, so I went out a bit late to be a Saturday. Went out with my father at 7:10 a.m. to the conservatory  and We did 6 laps at a good easy pace without a watch, We did those clockwise as opposed to I always run. The whole run was not with my father, because for the first 2+ laps We were running with another fellow runner and they pushed on the hills and they payed the price for that, first We dropped the guy( He had done 6 laps before), then around 300s after that I dropped my father since He pushed the next hills and I pushed it back and dropped him, never looked back, then I was running alone for the remaining of the laps in the conservatory, We met again, sinceHe did his last lap counterclockwise , then We headed home together, ok! I dropped him in the downhill and I finished first. Felt really good today and it does seem that I lasted 10 days without running, I am just feeling great while running, I hope that feeling continues. 8.5k without a watch.

Good morning run with my brother

This morning was up at 5.:30 a.m. and was out at 6 something with my brother to the conservatory, We did 5 laps easy, but from 2.5-3.5 laps I increased my pace by feel, I was huffing and puffing and Danilo caught me and built a gap, but it was so fun, finished feeling pretty good. So did 7.5k total without a watch.

Coming back

This morning I was up at 5:30 a.m. to run, had 10 days without running, a combination of lack of water and low motivation contributed to this, but now I am back. I did 3 easy laps in the conservatory without a watch, and felt really good, did not feel the absence at all, I ll notice it tomorrow though!! Have a great night!!5.5k total untimed.

Not a very good run

This afternoon I headed out to my run at 4:20 p.m.,I am off from work so that is why I could get that in at that time, I had a lot of time without running that early in the afternoon. As soon as I headed out I felt unconfortable due to the strong heat, but the most annoying was the stomach, it did not behave on this run, I was going to do 8.5k, but after 4 laps in the conservatory, being the last lap very slowly to see if I could feel better, decided to cut it short. I did 6.5k total without a watch, just by feel. Never felt good and to be honest did not enjoy this run, that stomach did not behave. At least I got my run in and could get some miles in. The weather was pretty hot. 6.5k without a watch.

Changing up the route

Have not run for the past couple of days due to the lack of motivation of no having water supply. This morning I wanted to change the route and do something different, I had been repeating the route for a lot of the lately runs. Just before 7 a.m. I headed out with my father to the Montesinos statue in the malecon( next to the ocean) and back, I dont know the exact distance and I did not carry a watch either, it was just running and enjoying it without tracking time or distance, I think that the running is much more enjoyable that way and definetely by now I ll stick to it. Ran with my father and We were running at a good clip, He was ahead of me with 1 mile to go or so, then the uphill came , I passed him and finished ahead by 40 seconds or so. I felt good the whole, increased effort in the final mile uphill and finished pretty strong, running effortlessly till home. I love running that way!! I ll have to change the routes more often, doing that you feel the true freedom that running provides. Have a great Sunday!! I did around 8+ kms, dont know for sure!!

Good morning run

Yesterday skipped the run. This morning I headed out at 8:00 a.m. since I am off from work, did 6 laps in the conservatory and back for a total of 8.5k, yea the same route as the past few weeks! I need to change it up a bit. Ran without a watch as lately and felt pretty strong and good, nothing compared as when I got from work, I am just spent at that time of the day. Have a great day!! 8.5kw/o watch.

Decent run after work

Yesterday took the day off. had the calves somewhat tight causing my shins to bother me a bit, so opted for a rest day. This morning slept in, but leave it the run till the afternoon. At 6:50 p.m. headed out with my brother to the conservatory and did 6 laps there, feeling good but low and tired from work, definetely prefer the early morning when my energy is at its top. Did 8.5 without a watch, the run went by quickly. Have a great night!!8.5k without watch!
