Choose

Life is all about choices.

I choose ULTRA.

…and I have not joined 1 up until this writing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Why?

Why I chose ultrarunning?

Simply because it’s easier for me. To some, it’s hard. It’s easy enough that a lot has joined it lately. It’s also hard that I have not seen an ultramarathon event with more than 500 participants.

๐Ÿ™‚

Soon.

I have high hopes.

I do believe it will come to that.

As to what event – I don’t know yet.

A lot of things will depend greatly on many factors.

  • the venue
  • the terrain
  • the weather
  • the registration fee

Until that time – I will keep on training. ๐Ÿ™‚

Strategy

Hmmmm.

1,427 above sea level.

Flat on the first 9K

Very steep ascent in the next 5K, and then a rolling hills up to the next 16K.

Another rugged ascent in the next 10K, then rolls again for the last 10K.

Hmmm…I love the details of this one.

๐Ÿ™‚

If it gets too sunny or it rains too hard – I hope not.

If the weather gets too good – it will be a fine race for me.

#lookingforwardlang

#firstultraoftheyearifever

  1. 1st 9K – run
  2. 2nd 5K – walk
  3. 3rd 16K – 4:1 run walk
  4. 4th 10K – 3:1 run walk
  5. 5th 10K – 6:1 run walk to finish

WINDS OF CHANGE

Suddenly…

Unexpected things happen to my liking.

๐Ÿ™‚

I need to alter my training (good thing is that there is ample time). I need to return to midnight runs and I need very very long runs – at cold temperatures! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. MAY 1, 2013 somewhere down SOUTH.
  2. MAY 5, 2013 Tagaytay or Shotgun MIYAMIT FALLS + PEAK!
  3. MAY 12, 2013 Bataan Mountains

Bleed in training…

…Smile on Race Day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks be to God!

IN 2 WEEKS

It’s a bold and confident forecast.

I see myself at my ideal weight of 124 lbs in 2 weeks. That would be the week where May 1 can be found.

I am overly excited for May since I will be increasing the mileage, intensity and activity of my training by then. The whole month will be:

  • SPECIFIC
  • DISTANCE AND PACE strict
  • FOCUSed ON QUALITY REST

I also intend to add some muscle building workouts – but then this can wait until June.
