Pinoy Fitness SUB-1 10K Challenge on September 22, 2013

Pinoy Fitness Run for Change, Dec 16, 2012

Hi guys!

As an obvious fan of Pinoy Fitness, I am already registered for their upcoming event on September 22, 2013,  the Pinoy Fitness Sub1 10K Challenge!

I see myself as more of an endurance or distance runner as I have done several full marathons and ultra marathons but doing 10K in below 1hr time is still a challenge.

I remember to have done two (2) 10K's with under 1hr finish time, first was last November 2012 at the 2nd Michelle Estuar Fund Racing and then during the Pinoy Fitnes Run for Change last December 16, 2012.

My finish time for both event was 58mins and 56mins respectively.

See you on the road and on September 22!!

~Below are more details of the event from Pinoy Fitness website.


Here it is guys! Details for the Pinoy Fitness SUB-1 Challenge is out! Are you fit enough to finish a 10K under 1 hour? Join us on September 22, 2013 in BGC!

5th Tagaytay to Nasugbu 50K Ultra-01May2013

5th T2N with BR Sir Jovie Narcise
It's sweeter the second time around? Or the third time around? I believe that running ultra marathon will bring you different experiences every time you run the course even in multiple times.

In my third in a row participation of the Tagaytay to Nasugbu 50K ultra marathon, I have tasted different types of pain and fulfillment.

During my first ultra on May 20, 2012 during the 3rd T2N, my finish time was 6:30H sharp and this was my personal target time and up to now is my personal record.

In my second ultra on December 02, 2012, I was a pacer to my doctor running friend and we finished the run with time 7:20H.

Last May 01, 2013, at the 5th T2N, with no sleep at all, I managed to finish the race with time 6:46H, still not beating my PR but it was another experience to remember.

With different ultra marathons, with different body and road conditions, I still wanted to participate in the next staging of T2N.

Happy ultra running every one!

46K LSD to Antipolo on Good Friday - 29Mar2013

Last Good Friday, March 29, 2013 I had my first solo LSD going up to the Antipolo Cathedral (National Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage). In my planned route via Dailymile, the round trip LSD would have a total of 42K mileage, click HERE to view the map. But upon reaching the Cathedral, I decided to visit my relatives in a nearby subdivision which added at least 8K mileage.

Infront of Antipolo Cathedral on March 29, 2013
Last year, we had our Visita Iglesia with fellow running friends to Antipolo via Pasig, Cainta and Taytay.Total one way mileage was around 27 kilometers with at least 7 churches that we visited.

My LSD last Good Friday was also the first road test of my Soleus Fit 1.0 GPS watch. True enough the GPS distance did not start immediately and I had to re-start the watch at around 2K mark from my starting point in Sta. Mesa.

My GPS watch now road tested

The watch display shows 44.19Kms but the actual mileage was at plus 46Kms due to the need to re-start the GPS connection. Also, I was suppose to do a round trip LSD at 42K distance as I mentioned earlier but due to the added distance, the total distance if I had completed the route would be at least 52Kms. But upon reaching Meralco in Ortigas Center at past 1PM, I decided to call it a day and stop due to extreme heat of the summer sun.

Consumed (water partly used in cooling my head) the following during my 7 hours and 44 minutes LSD plus heat training;

A. Going up to Antipolo Cathedral (at least 21K)
1. 500ml Gatorade Grape (in my 2 bottles Nathan Hydration belt, 1 bottle left)
2. 350ml Cobra
3. 350ml Summit water
4. 28g Cloud 9 chocolate
5. 1 GU energy gel Vanilla
6. 500ml Absolute water

B. In my cousin's house and going back to Antipolo City Proper (at least 8K)
1. 300ml water (at least)
2. 2 pcs boiled banana (saba)
3. 237ml Cobra
4. 237ml Royal softdrinks

C. Antipolo Proper to Ortigas Center (around 17K)
1. 28g Cloud 9 chocolate
2. 500ml Gatorade
3. 350ml Hidden Spring water
4. 1 pc Kariman Burgoo (Mini Stop)
5. 500ml Viva water

And a lot more water plus some Gatorade and salt upon reaching home. I normally do not have the appetite to eat a lot after long run, even after ultra marathons.

My New Running Buddy- Soleus Fit 1.0 GPS Watch

Hello everyone!

It's been a while since my last blog post here. Been very busy with work related activities, in short office life as well as home life.

Despite this I have managed to get some training runs during Sundays since January this year. I am currently gearing up for my 3rd 50K run on May 1, 2013 at the 5th Tagaytay to Nasugbu ultra marathon.

And as a present to myself, I bought my first ever watch and it is a running watch! It is my new running buddy - a Soleus Fit 1.0 GPS watch.

My new Soleus Fit 1.0 GPS
Soleus Fit 1.0 is the most basic model with the brand- they also have 2.0 and 3.0 models. Below is the brief model information for 1.0;

Model Number: SG100

Track your workouts with the 24-hour chrono, 100-Lap memory, and an optional Auto Lap feature to mark and record your splits without having to push a button. The GPS Fit 1.0 also features a ventilated band, larger display for easier reading and a simplified 4-button design.
