Mizuno Run (Ang TAkbo na Halos Nilakad Ko!)
Medyo late na tong post ko na’to. The latest MIzuno Run happened last 11 April 2010. I felt ready for the 10-k race when I woke up that morning. Di ko na maalala kung anong preparation ko before the run but what I remembered is that I ran around UP campus friday before the run. From March up to the race day, I am practicing for the BSP sportsfest kaya medyo dapat ready yung katawan ko for the run but hindi ganun ang nangyari.
Unlike my two previous runs, I came early at the Fort. I did some stretching. I am wearing nga pala a jacket, basketball shorts, high socks and running shoes. The race started and I started on a slow pace until I saw a runner doing fast stride. Naiingit ako, kaya ginaya ko. It felt good although nakaramdam ako ng hingal. Everything was fine until I hit the fly over . . Wow grabe . . Napagod agad ako . . sumakit yung mga hita ko . .naramdaman ko yung init lalo na nakajacket ako. After reaching the 5k mark. ayun na! Naglakad ako to grab water. Di ko alam na after that mawawala na ang will ko tumakbo. Literally I just walked toward the flyover and walked while on the fly over . . I just lose my motivation to run. I just watched the sun rising . . ang ganda . . I remembered a scene in the movie Forest Gump. I just enjoyed the sites than the run. Tuwing may kakilala akong aabutan ako niyaya nila akong tumakbo . . sabi ko “Sige pre takbo na kayo, ok lan ako” he he.
I reached the finish line running siyempre para runner pa rin ang dating. Kinuha ko na yung finisher’s shirt and other give aways. Picture taking and breakfast. Ayun na yun!
My official time is 1 h and 12 minutes . . . just 2 minutes later than my last time at Unilab Run for Wellness of 1 h and 10 minutes . . so ano ba to? Mabagal lang ako tumakbo o mabilis lang ako maglakad?
