Catching up after the flu

Had not run since Thursday due to the flu beating me up over the weekend, I was back to the running thing today. I ran after going to the supermarket today after work around 6:45 p.m. I started my run to the conservatory and did 5 laps there, did several battles with a few guys, I think I won but when I was finishing the run I had one guy kicking my heels, and I was huffing and puffing, laps progressed from 6:30,6:10,5:47,5:19,5:04. I am in very bad shape but that can be improved. Glad that I ran today, good things happened there and before the run I was thinking on bagging the run, you never regret a run. Did around 6.3k in 36:51.

Catching up

Sunday and Monday did not run, just got lazy. Tuesday I did 35 mins in the conservatory at 7:00 p.m.  and did some pull ups. Today at 6:30 p.m. Did 5 laps and 300s and did 38:53. Ran with another runnner for a bit of more than 1 lap, good conversation about running. Its good to meet new people. Its good to be alive, and its good to have a hobby, life is amazing and We humans take a lot of things for granted. We worry for a lot of things that are important to some degree, but We do not worry about things that are TRULY important, such as health, love, etc.  Have a great night everyone!

Catching up

No running Monday and Tuesday, returned back yesterday and did 5.5k in 33:30 at 6:30 p.m. Today I did the same route as yesterday, which was 3 laps in the conservatory and did 33:24. At least I am doing something, honestly I was going to rest today becasue low motivation, but then motivate myself and dont regret that decision. Weather was hot even at night.

Have a great night!

Best week runningwise in a while

This morning at 9:20 .a.m. I went out to the mirador to meet my friend Andres to run a bit, I did 30 mins on my own before He showed up. Then We did 2.5k in 13:38, the guy has good pace, then We did some pull ups there, then We did 13 more mins to finish, then stayed there talking with a fellow fast runner Urraca.  I was pretty tired, the sun was shining hard and the last 6 days of running maybe caught up to me, I dont remember the last time I ran 6 times in a week. I should do it every week if I want to flirt with my old PRs. Have a great Sunday!

And the running keeps going on

Today was my off day from work, but I ran in the evening anyway. Went out at 6:05 p.m. and did 6 laps there, stopped to do some pull up bars. Felt really good today and the pace is dropping, felt faster at an easier effort today. The splits were 6:06,6:03,5:56,5:41,5:53,5:49. Finished the run in 43:26, so maybe around 7.3k. Have a great night! Happy to have run the 4 days of this week!

And the running continues

Today I ran again after work at 6:50 p.m. I headed out to the conservatory with Danilo, We ran around 2-3 laps together but then He gapped and vanished. I did 5 laps there in 6:17,6:07,5:44,5:47,5:46, finished the 7.5k in 45:06. Felt good, but a bit tired at the beginning due to yesterday´s run since I had a lot of time without doing more than 8.5k. The weather was decent and I am happy to have started to run consistently.  Have a great night!

Meeting new people

I ran today after work and was a bit upset that I started later than planned, started at 7:10 p.m. luckily it was still clear at that hour. Did 7 laps today there, was not planned by any means, I planned to do 5 laps there and ended up doing 7 laps, the reason is that I got some company there, rarity for me, I ran with a girl that I had seen before but never had talked or run with. Ran with her( her name is Iris) for about 1 lap without saying a word, then I decided to take the lead and We started talking, good conversation and good company, We did around 4-5 laps together. We were running laps sub 6 mins. I finished the 9.5k in 56:48. Dont remember the last time that I ran for that long. Good run and I feel good!

Zapping the zero for good

No running on the weekend.

Today I decided that I needed to train hard again with focus, I have been through bad stuff over the last months, but its time to put my head up and keep moving forward.  I did 39 mins finishing in the conservatory after work, laps were 6:17,6:10,5:58,5:54,5:52, did pull ups there, I am feeling the strength coming in my arms from that exercise, did 3 in a row,I want to gradually up it to 10 in a row, I ll be very strong.  Felt good running and need to do it more consistently if I want to run in the upcoming races.

Have a great night!

Back on the running thing

No running since Sunday, no motivation after work nor in the morning. I was motivated and decided to start training for December race, need to get back to my life and to my running passion. After work, did 4 laps in the conservatory and completed the 5.5k in 32 mins, during those laps I joined two guys, one of them had passed me  and gapped me in previous laps, then He sped up again and We left in the dust the other guy, the spanish guy gapped me but not by much, I just went with him, was a hard effort for me right now, that lap was in 5:07, which is too fast these days for me, need to get back to shape, I think I won since He stopped to a walk and I passed him. Did pull ups there and I feel the strength increasing a lot, could do 3 pull ups in a row, I could not do even one. Have a great Friday!
