As a member of the International Association Of Ultrarunners, I did a 10K “run & hike” in my backyard loop in connection with the “IAU Global Solidarity Weekend”. This event was initially conceived in 2020 during the Covid-19 Pandemic Lockdown and since then this event was conducted every year. The Philippine Association of Ultrarunners (PAU) which I am the President for the past 14 years, had been joining this event representing my country, Philippines. There was a time that only selected runners within each team-country would join this yearly event. For the past events, Philippines had b ..read more

Buy Your Tickets Early

For the past years, I have been buying my flight tickets 2-3 months before my scheduled flight and most of the time they are more expensive. Lately, I have found out that buying your flight tickets as early as 5-6 months makes a lot of difference. So, since then, I made sure to plan and study my calendar one year ahead and consider the period to purchase my flight ticket which is 5-6 months before. The main consideration or reason why buying your flight ticket very early is because it would be very cheap. At the advent of Online transactions, most of the travellers choose to schedule and purch ..read more

I will be starting a series of posts in this blog about traveling abroad and will try to help my readers, make this blog as a guide and maybe, inspire others to do the same as what I have experienced. Before my retirement from the active military service, I have started this blog about running and my running adventures before and after I retired. I have traveled more countries abroad in other countries because of running and I really enjoyed the experience. However, after the Covid-19 pandemic I have reduced my running training and I could only afford and do at least one marathon race a year ..read more

I was able to run non-stop using my heavyweight denim jeans and Converse Chuck Taylor with a distance of 5K. It took me 59:20 minutes with an average pace of 11:51 minutes per kilometer. It is very slow but I am still happy because I was able not to walk during the workout. After the running workout, I made a 20-minute stationary cycling in a very slow but consistent cycle pace. This is another way for me to sweat a lot and it was worth the time. This will be my last running workout with more concentration on the distance covered. My next workout will concentrate on the number of hours and min ..read more

Day 5 was my Rest Day and I did not run and walk because I decided to have this day as my rest day. There was a “brownout” or electric power interruption that started at 6:00 AM (in the morning) and I felt lazy after not being able to post a blog. Oh well… I activated my cellular data connection with my cell phone just to be able to look for some updates in my social media accounts for a few minutes. And after posting some updates on my X account, I thought of making some video content to my You Tube Channel. I thought of this while I was about to wake up from bed. Actually, I did this once la ..read more

After 3 days of running continuously for 3K and 3.5K, I thought of one of the running and endurance sports training principles of “Hard & Easy Days” workouts before I started my daily running workout. So, I decided to make it an “easy day” yesterday and I decided to walk/hike. As a result, the hike/walk became some sort of walkathon (faster walk) within the middle of my workout and I really enjoyed it. I was able to do my workout for almost one hour, to be exact, 58:52 minutes, covering a distance of 4.42 kilometers which was more than my daily distance covered from the previous days. I wa ..read more

Yesterday was my Day 3 of running. I ran a distance of 3.52 kilometers with my heavyweight denim jeans and Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers which is half kilometer farther than the distance I usually ran two days previously. It took me 36:26 minutes as I tried my best to run non-stop in my Backyard Loop. The workout resulted to an average pace of 10:21 minutes per kilometer which was slower than I had the previous day by 2 seconds. Not bad. After removing my wet shirt from my perspiration, I did a 16-minute stationary biking/cycling and I continued to sweat a lot. Actually, I did this workout th ..read more

This was my second day running 3K in my backyard loop and it was done on the later part of yesterday afternoon. As usual, I was running with my heavyweight selvedge denim and now with my old and dependable Converse Chuck Taylor in black. It was a slow start and I was able to maintain my pace. Actually, it was not a perfect running workout but it was some sort of jogging but I was able to maintain it without stopping. It is understable that the weight of my jeans could reach more than 4 pounds which is almost 2 kilograms. The reason why I am using this jeans is because I am joining a denim fade ..read more

As I was hiking yesterday with my denim jeans and Crocs sandal (for the first time, instead of my heritage boots) in the middle of the day in my Backyard Loop, I thought of started running and to find out how I would do for a short distance. The short distance I was thinking was only about 10 meters and before I knew it, I was running continuously and finally decided to continue. I ran continuously without stopping for 3 kilometers and I was surprised that I was able to sustain the effort. It was not a fast one but I think it was a decent one because of the heavy denim jeans that I was wearing ..read more
