How Do You Prepare for a 102-Km Run?

Such a question requires a lot more smaller questions to answer.

  • How long have you been running?
  • Is it your 1st time to cover the distance?
  • What about your weekly and monthly total mileage?
  • What about your endurance?

Given your answer to the questions above, tackling and finishing the 102-km within the cut-off of 18-hours is a tough act to some, and an easy feat to others.

There’s just so much to check when running this challenging distance:

  1. You need a strategy. An attack plan. A racing plan that focuses mainly on you not getting dehydrated, not getting dizzy, not getting weak, not getting a nasty cramp and not getting a body shutdown. You’re already smart. You can read between the lines. Think how you have handled your firsts: 5k, 10K, 21K, 42K, 50K, 60K, 70K, 80K.
  2. You need to believe you can do it based on the racing plan you created. Quitting is your last option only when unwanted things happen. Always be smart to decide if the race is already threathening your life.

Anyways, this post is for me. 🙂 Hahahahaha…

Remember, nothing is too hard to the prepared…and nothing is puzzling to the one who knows what they are doing.

Give the glory back to God – for it is what He deserve.

I hope to see the smiling faces of my friends once more. The thrill is something you cherish forever.

Tonight’s Toastmaster meeting at UEC, is a short one. I’ll be the Toastmaster of the Evening and my theme is Love, Courtship, and the Stubborn Heart.

…Evaluation was good enough. But something is lacking.

…Dead day.

Not much message,

Not much text.

Not much interaction.

Today starts a workout adaptation to improve run pace to goal pace.

Every jog:walk is long. Every run:walk is faster. Bursts will be introduced too.

More than the workout, I look forward to the work after it.

Another special day.

Full of frustrations and disappointments. Same as the 15th but better. The firsts and seconds top the list.

Who can help?

Who has the remedy?

14th and 15th of September 2018

The 14th started everything. It was the best day before the 15th. Full of unexpected things. Good, and awesome unexpected things. Full of memorable firsts…

The 15th topped it all.

Unexpected.

Unbelievable.

Full of firsts.

Full of frustrations.

I will never forget this day.

Not just because of the failures and big frustrations but also of the firsts…and some great awesome things too.

I will deliver a speech today to complete my Level 2 in Pathways : Motivational Strategies.

The last of 3 Projects is Knowing Your Communication Style.

Glad to have made it this far…with all the learnings I gained.

Completed the speech and the evaluation was good and thorough. It’s always my vocal variety that is lacking. Maybe I do sound monotone. hahaha

This days started fine. Down by the start of the night…and ended up before bed. Talk about a roller-coaster ride.
