Walking As An Alternative To Running

Today, I preferred to walk from Quirino Highway-Pedro Gil to the Rotonda jeepney terminal in Paco and from Nagtahan-Rotonda to the office. Walking is a good form of exercise and because I woke up late this morning I did not have the time to run. I made walking as an alternative. At least, I burned some calories. When I arrived at the office, I rewarded myself with a mouthful of chili rice for breakfast. It was not bad at all, I did not eat last night just because I was not hungry.

NatGeo Earth Day Run 2010: My First

Okay, okay, okay. The technical shirt has fitted well on me. I have achieved my goal of losing some bulges, although it was unnoticeable. Mission #2: accomplished!

Going back to the topic, my first ever run was a success. I finished the race in 35 minutes and 18 seconds with Yobs. Although I did not win, I know in my heart that I enjoyed running with all those participants who wanted to help save Mother Earth.
I did not feel any strains or tiredness. From start to finish, all we did was ran, jog, walk and laugh. As a first timer, I opted to take the 3k to just know how the system goes and now that I already knew, I would definitely choose to ran 5k next time. I can do much better!

The Day Before NatGeo's Earth Day Run

Tomorrow is the most-awaited day for my first run ever, the NatGeo's Earth Day Run. Aside from the lessened amount of food intake for a week, I also did jogging for an hour around our village this morning. It felt great to sweat a lot and stretch some bones and muscles.

Since I live in Cavite, I will be paying for a Biahero Room at the Eurotel in Malate tonight so I could take enough sleep and prevent myself from rushing to the race venue and being late. I will also eat more carbo, potassium and protein today so I would have enough energy and strength for tomorrow's race.

Good luck to me!

Earth Day Run on April 18, 2010

I will be running 3k for the NatGeo's Earth Day Run on April 18, 2010 at the MOA Grounds with Yobs. I skipped full breakfast and dinner meals since Monday (April 12) and just had either oatmeal cookies, fruits, Nesvita cereal drink or a glass water instead. I jogged once this week in 45 minutes. I know this is not enough; that is why I plan to join the village fun run tomorrow morning. I bought a new pair of running shoes and I am going to buy a pair of running shorts later today.

I missed the Century Tuna Bods Run and Unilab Run in February and March, respectively. So, I won't miss this one on Sunday. Good luck to me and boyfriend :P
