after a hiatus from running for almost a month now, i am ready to do a serious reconditioning of myself for my first race in april.
i have registered for the BDO race for life which is happening on april 7 at the mall of asia grounds.
the sight of the race kit last march 21 made me feel a little guilty for letting my running take a backseat after clinching my first marathon last february 3.
i did mention a reason at https://wanderingjouster.com/2013/03/01/safeguard-2xu-sole-racing, but i guess it was not the major one. up to this moment, i am still figuring out the other causes for the fizzling of my enthusiasm, but i am thankful it was just temporary.
now that academic year 2012-2013 is finally over with my encoding the grades in the prism this afternoon (yahooooooooooo!), i have no reason not to let my feet be back on the track. to add, i do not like the changes in my bodily condition lately. if i continue the bad habit that i am starting to develop every siesta hour, i will surely be regretting its effects. not a good way to claim that i have this zest for life.
more or less i got two weeks to do my training run for this event, which is also the 5th annual fund raising run of BDO foundation. one hundred percent of its proceeds will help fund its housing projects for typhoon victims (for complete details log in to http://www.takbo.ph/2013/02/bdo-race-for-life-2013/).
tomorrow is holy tuesday. i might start my training run and treat it as my form of penitence this holy week.
then maybe, i can aim to have a new PR in the half-marathon. 🙂
the mau is getting suuuuuper excited again.
