Hot run with father

I had ages without running with my father, so today was the opportunity, We headed out to the conservatory at 8:40 a.m. and I wore my sunglasses, the heat and sun is definetely high. We only did 3 laps there for a total of 5.5k total in 34:36, I am running very slow, but at least I am doing something which is the most important thing. My father finished a bit farther back.  The legs never responded so I just cut the run short!Weather was HOT!! have a great Sunday!

Back again

Did not run at all Thursday or Friday, was busy after work, need to get back to the predawn running next week since I am starting a finances course.

I am off from work today and was out at 8:00 a.m. to the conservatory with my sunglasses, did 7.5k total(5 laps there) in 46:30, very slow but at least I am doing something, felt good. Need to do strength training later today, I say " need" because I dont particulary enjoy doing push ups, I like doing pull ups better because I can chat there with a couple of guys. All in all a good run and a good day to be out there!! Thanks my lord for the opportunity!!

Good after work run

When I got back from work, I got out to the conservatory and did 45 mins there, the laps were slow from 6:14-5:58, I am in bad shape, but at the same time felt good, just slow. Afer the 45 mins several pull ups bar. My chest is tired so I could not get the sets that I wanted, at least did something. Around 7.5k total.

Back to the running groove

After no running since Thursday for the inability to wake up early to run and in the afternoon life getting in the way, I just could get back to run today.

Today after work did 6 laps in the conservatory watchless, and did pull ups there, met new people in the chin up bar, talked a bit, but they did much more pull ups than me. I am a beginner right know, but I can feel the strength improving, did several sets of 1-2 pull ups. Tomorrow push ups. I see yesterdays pictures when I was in Constanza river, I see myself too fat, did not look like an athlete at all, that needs to change. I am heading the right direction I think, but I need to improve my diet a lot.

Nice morning run

Yesterday could not run because I wanted to run after work, but life a work got in the way and I could not run.

Today is a public holiday here, so had the luxury to go out a bit later this morning, went out at 10:40 a.m.  and did 4 laps in the conservatory in 6:10,6:02,5:54,5:52. Then back home for a total of 6.5k@38:53. I think the fitness is coming around slowly, but I need more consistency, had to bring the sunglassses today, the sun was strong. Will do pull ups and push ups tomorrow. Have a great day!

Zapping the zero

On Sunday could not run because lack of planning, ended up the whole day in a accounting course with a coworker, it was good though. That day drank more than I could remember and on Monday I just was hung over, its time to put an end to the alcohol, I am an athlete and I need to behave as such. No more alcohol in a while.

Today I was back on the wagon, felt pretty good out there, ran after work at 6:40 p.m. first 3 laps solo over 6 mins, then my brother ran with me the last 3 with in 5:56,5:53,5:50. Felt pretty good, stopped there and did several sets of pull ups, I almost do 3 today, I am getting there. When got home did 5  x 10 push ups, my arms were tired. A lot of work to do.

 45 mins of total running.

And the running contines

Today after work, did 5 laps in the conservatory watchless at a good pace, it was an easy effort, and it was my longes run in 2 months or so. 7.5k total watchless. It feels good to be outside moving the body and sweating, that makes you feel alive. Keep on the great work!
