My Century Tuna Superbods Run Training10:36 AM
I am preparing for the Century Tuna Superbods Run by waking up early before the sun even rises to get the heart pumping, legs moving and sweat bods flowing. Waking up early in the morning makes me more committed to my training schedule because I have no excuse to not get my lazy ass up and run.
Of course, that's the actual running already. Before I even started the training, I made sure that I secured a green light from the family doctor. With all the holiday festivities, I had to make sure I am still in shape to start running the streets of Makati again. It's almost effortless to wake up at 430AM, change into my running clothes and shoes. It's a welcome treat for my legs that is so used to wearing stilettos at work. And I am thankful that Uncle Don's rest days at work are in sync with mine so I found a running buddy in him (although he always whoops my ass because I don't run as fast as him yet). This is one sure-fire way to help me stick to my mileage commitment. Aside from finally having a running buddy, I also journal my daily runs (miles, time, weather, running courses and moods). It surely keeps my goals A-L-I-V-E!
All the training I do would all be useless if I don't watch what I eat. Eating Century Tuna 30 minutes before the run makes me feel full and energized. This protein-packed meal is sometimes eaten with pineapple, with pasta or just enjoyed alone on it's own pure goodness.
P.S. Before all the training started, I made sure I treated my feet and legs to a good ole seaweed scrub. Ahhhh! The good life...
I have posted running tips for newbies that worked for me before and is still working for me now in my other blog. You can read about the article here.
I want to run the Century Tuna Superbods Run because I want to stay committed to the first resolution in my 2010 list: To join at least one race every month until I finally am able to finish my first marathon before I turn 28. You wanna join me?
