The flu run

I am off from work today I headed early in the morning( not so early) at 7:45 a.m. to the conservatory, I was told that it was going to be closed till Monday when is ignagurated" the lights park" a beautiful place with a lot of lights, the downside is that the traffic after 6 p.m. is terrible due to that and its going to last till January, that would interfere with my night runs too, maybe I ll have to switch to predawn runs!

I did today the same thing as last night, 4 laps outside the conservatory watchless again. I felt a bit tired today because as I mentioned I do have the flu and I am battling against it, luckily its above the shoulder and I can run fine, hope that I can run in the weekend. Around 7.2-7.3k total.

This afternoon the company my brother works for is doing a 5k race, My father and I think that He can get top 3, both of us have permission to go waching him race and encourage. I wish him pretty good luck  I know that He ll do just fine.

Have a great Friday everyone!

getting most out of opportunities

Yesterday I rested because I did not wake up early, and at night did have classes.

This evening after work I almost bag the run, but the will to train harder and get out there won, so I headed out around 7:20 p.m. to the conservatory to find that it was closed, so I had to do laps outside the conservatory which significantly longer, I did 4 laps and headed back home. Today I ditched the watch and ran easy, I am getting the flu and I am caughing a lot, but the legs just felt fresh and tired less during the run. Glad that I did go out, around 7.2-7.3k. Have a great night everyone!!

Zapping the zero

Yesterday was my day off.

This evening at 6:30 p.m. I went out to the conservatory and did 4 laps there and stopped there to talk and watch the women dancing there. When I started I felt slow and not so good, even started with a headache becasue the flu is about getting me, I did the first lap in 10:08, saw that was not my day, then started to loosen up and did 9:44 and felt better, on the third things started to improve even more to do 9:22, then decided to push the last lap thats when I met Jose and He basically ran the whole lap with my at that pace, I dropped him in the last downhill where I speed up a lot, did 7:59 and I was looking to go sub 8 mins. I am getting stronger and stronger and feeling a lot better. To be honest the diet has not improved much, but at least I am being pretty consistent. Did 45:25 and finished feeling good and headache-free. Have a great night everyone!

Finishing up the week in a good note

Today I ran a bit later than planned, ran at 9:30 .a.m. or so, I honestly was very tired from yesterday´s evening run, I was smart and decided to ditch the watch today and just log the miles in. I went out to the conservatory and did the exact route as the past two days, that is getting old and I ll need to find new routes. Felt tight and sluggish for the first half of the run, then kind of loosened it up and felt decent, although the sun was pretty hot and strong, well, you got to brave the elements if you want to succeed in life. 5 runs this week and feeling stronger, the ideal would be 6 days of running, but 5 is good too. Maybe I did around 45 mins today.

Have a great Sunday everyone!!

Another rainy day

Today I ran in the evening once again, I like the silence of the conservatory of Saturday´s evening. Anyway, running in the afternoon its not something that I ll always do when I ramp up my training, but I am enjoying my runs a lot no matter if they in the evening or early morning.

Today  at 6:30 p.m.I did the exact route as yesterday in 44:08. After 20 mins I felt low on energy, but then after the 35 mins I felt really good again, finishing the run feeling really good. I did not close hard because tomorrow I want to match my brother 's last km in around 4 min of his time trial, last Sunday I could not even do 4:10, I was on my way to it but gave in in the last 150s where I slowed to a jog. Felt good today and the running is going good, feeling stronger and stronger!

Have a great social Saturday!! I ll stay here reading and watching videos!

Catching up

I did not run on Wednesday due to sleeping in, but I made a commitment to run at least 5 times per week and I have following that to a T for last month +.

Yesterday I went out running at night at 7:00 p.m. got to the conservatory and met Jose there We ran for 22 mins, and He kept my pace easily, after that He stopped due to a side stitch, I continued to finish my run in 46:27. Did 4 laps to the lap that I do when the conservatory has closed areas. laps were in 9:50s and got down to 9:21 in the last one. Felt really good and feeling stronger each time.

Today I was off from work and after a hard rain a got out to do my run did 3 laps there and got home in 44:21. Felt really strong and felt really good, the weather was pretty good also. The only unconfortable were the paddles in the streets that I had to dodge at times. Have a great Friday everyone!!

Catching up

I missed Tuesday and Wednesday´s training. Tuesday decided to rest and Wednesday slept in and could not go at night because I had the Finances course. I need to make up both days, so I ran all of the remaining dasys of the week.

Thursday when I got from work headed to the conservatory and did 46:15 easy.

Friday did the same thing and ran 44:51, that day I worked a lot and got home late than planned,headed out that day at 7:25 p.m.

Saturday Headed out in the afternoon just before 6 p.m. did the same route as Friday feeling like a million of bucks, did 43:43.

Sunday morning headed out with father and brother at 7:30 a.m. to the mirador, did 9k total and did 1k with my brother at a fast pace I encouraged him to finish his time trial, He wanted to stop but I think I avoided that, He left me in the dust in the last 150m, I was just huffing and puffing, He did 4:10 in that km and I did around 4:30, jogging the last 150m. Completed the 9k total.

I finished up the week on a good note, I think I have 1 month running 5 times per week, which is good, I would rather train 6 days per week, but 5 times per week is just decent compared to the inconsistency I have been carrying in the last years/months. I will continue like that and I hopefully will get fit and lean.

Have a great Sunday Everyone!

Catching up

Saturday I went out running in the evening, poured pretty hard and I got soaked to the bone, for me that was a refreshing feeling, had the opportunity to run with another guy for 10-15 mins, He had a great pace and is training for a half marathon that is held on November 23 th, I encourage him, I had to work a bit to keep his pace, his name is Frank and I would like to run with him again and race with him. I did 48:42 total , finishing there in the conservatory. I just ran corner to corner for more than 3 laps. Then I went out with my brother and my friend Hugo to eat a burguer and then to drink a few beers at Hooters, very nice place with a very good vibe there, I really like it, I over eat that day ha, after eating the burgers at Wendys, We had the beers there, but I also orderer a couple of serving of ckicken strips., a very good note to end the day.

Sunday I went out early with my father to the conservatory, my legs were fried from the get go and I only got to run 38:46, sprinting in the last 100-200s. Capped off another week with 5 days of running, Consistency is coming back.

Monday was a public holiday here so that meant an early morning run with my father, We headed out to the mirador and I was going to do 10k, but then cut it short due to feeling tight and tired from the get go once again, 8k in 46:30, with last 3k in 16:09, again sprinting the last 200s. A lot of work to do!!

Evening run

This morning slept in once again, but as long as I am runnnig I am fine, so when I got back home from work I just dressed quick and headed out to the conservatory and did 3 laps corner to corner in less than 10 mins each lap, then finished there the 45 mins. Felt tired today, I worked a lot and hurried up a lot to get home early, but got later than planned though, that is the downside of evening running, life could get in the way too easily, as a result missing the run. All in all glad that I ran today.

Have a great night all!

Raining evening watchless run

Yesterday I hated myself all day because I stayed in bed and did not run.

This evening after work I was committed to run no matter what, I cant run less than 5 times per week if I want to have an acceptable performance on December, the most important thing for me is to keep the consistency going beyond that time frime and tackle to improve my times next year.  Just before 6 a.m. I went out to the conservatory to do my 3 laps corner to corner, as I have said this route is only when areas of the conservatory are closed due to preparing the park for christmas activities, I got out there watchless at a good clip and when I was there, started raining steady and the conservatory got empty, is amazing how poeple are afraid of rain, mainly women, maybe its the hair or somthing, but We were only around 5 people running and / walking , other poeple were gone or covered below a roof. anyway I felt good overall, but had stomach problems. Its incredible how running cleans ones mind, I am new and ready to keep rolling, but I ll save that for tomorrow morning that I ll run again, around 45 mins total, no watch.

Catching up

 I have been running regularly, but because I have internet problems I am not being able to post.


Thursday morning did 3 laps corner to corner in the conservatory watchless.

Friday morning did the same  with my father, but threw 1:52 in the last 500s. total 44:50.

Saturday, did the same but my father beat this time, did 44:10

Sunday I ran a 10k watchless in the mirador, felt tired and that seemed like a marathon.

Monday took the day off

Today was off from work so I went out running at 8 a.m. ran watchless again, and in the first 15 mins felt very tight and fat but then loosened up and felt great. around 45 mins total

The consistency has improved dramatically and I am feeling fitter except when I started this morning when I felt hopeless, luckily that improved dramatically after 20 mins.  Have a great night everyone!
