It’s going to take awhile for me to get back to the distance I’m aiming and training for knowing my body is still adjusting and re-adjusting but with determination and persuasion, everything or anything is doable!
The summer finally gave it’s final push, our tropical country has welcomed the monsoon season.
On my 7th week, I worked on running intervals. I’ve progressed from jogging an entire 3km. Started to follow the Jeff Galloway Run-Walk-Run running method again and perhaps, going to push for another Marathon next year. It’s been 5 years since The Bull Runner Marathon and my first international race in Singapore. Within the weeks of logging in mileage, I have improved, cutting 8 minutes of my time from the first day, 35 minutes down to 27 minutes for a 3km and 35minutes for a 5km (3km jog, and 2:1 towards the last stretch). Hopefully, in time, I’ll be able to achieve 3km in 18minutes (my then PR) and 25minutes for a 5km.
Towards the start of my 8th week. Life as it happens was quite challenging but thankfully, I was still able run 3kms with a 1.5km walk, 4kms run and lifted some weights, a 1000m catch-up freestyle paddles and a half-day Bodyblast Pilates program at Vivian Zapanta’s Studio in Salcedo Makati for some core work.
Just like in any program towards progression, one had to keep on challenging himself or herself in order to move forward and achieve goals. This is where the new challenge hops in. I have signed up for V2Fix Challenge, arranged by Vivian Zapanta in collaboration with V Kitchen. It’s time to add body weights and pay attention to nutrition.
I’ll let you know how it goes with the program. Wish me luck!
