Today’s Run: Some Basic Full Body Exercises on A Rainy Day and Monday

The sky is looking gloomy when we headed out to our (hubby and me) regular Monday morning run. The horizon looks so dark and seemed like warning us that a heavy rain is about to fall.

Amidst the rain warning and with our fingers crossed we proceeded with the plan to have at least some short runs. Hubby is religiously taking at least an hour run backed by his determination to push through his plan of running a full marathon if not late this year or early next year.

While my only wish this morning is to catch the group of people who are doing their mixture of (full body) exercises on weekdays. It has a been a while since the last time I joined my own weekend group because I was not available for the past weekends.

Anyway, as I anticipated with this morning’s kind of weather the fitness group of people is not on their usual spot. So I forced myself to run at least 3K. But dang! I left my wireless headset back home. This is going to be a real-cruel-run (told myself while sighing)

After some short runs round the park and a single pass at the CCP ramp I ended up taking hubby’s challenge to try his short work outs.

The idea of this work out is to do these exercises in 30 seconds each. This morning we tried the “17 Full body work out

Me doing the jumping jacks. Please ignore the weight gained LOL!

3. Squats
4. Overhead arm clap

11. Steam Engine

Today’s Running Wear:
Anticipating that it will rain anytime , I chose light clothing for today. Tops is my 2015 Nike All Women’s Run Shirt which is dri-fit material and won’t cling on my body once I happen to be soaked in the rain. My black shorts is one that I usually wear to top my swimwear for the same obvious reason. Shoes is my Nike Free 5.0 which I intentionally worn without socks for the same reason. Plus that Nike Free shoes is always best worn without socks.

Today’s Music:
Nada! I left my headset at home remember?

Today’s Food:
I think it was French toast and coffee. I’m not sure because I am actually posting this late. This happened and drafted last Monday. I finalized and posted this just today.  I know I have been procrastinating for an extended time but hey I’m trying to be back both in blogging and sweating out!

What about you? What little exercises have you been doing? Or you have been  on extended procrastination too

Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

Nicolas and Dichoso each took home the top purse of P10,000 in cash and a trophy. The 21-year-olds have also booked their slots to the National Finals in Angeles on December 6, where they will meet the nation’s elite runners in a heated grand finale to claim the MILO Marathon King and Queen titles.

To provide another level of prestige to the competition and incentive for the runners, this year’s King and Queen will be sent by MILO to the USA on all-expense paid trips, for a chance to run in the prestigious 2016 Boston Marathon.

Nicolas clocked in at 01:12:04, besting hundreds of runners in the men’s 21K division. Gilbert Laido (01:17:07) and Ernie Payong (01:18:05) completed the top 3 male 21K finishers. In the distaff side, Dichoso ruled with a time of 01:35:50, while in the female 21K division, Marilyn Bermundo (01:45:52) and Gemma Payong (01:46:16) finished second and third place, respectively.

Agricultural Engineering student Nicolas was pleased with the results of his hard-earned race.  The MILO Marathon regular was last year’s 10K Naga winner as well, and he has been proudly winning various 5K to 21K races for three years now. For the National Finals, he believes he has ample time before the big day.
“I was able to break my target time.  My target was 1:35:00 but I was able to cross the finish line at around 1:12:00. This might be my best time yet. I am glad I get to beat my personal challenges with hard work.”
“I will continue training every morning, like I always do. With the right amount of motivation in my preparations, I might get a good chance for the Finals.” ~Alvin Nicolas, Jr~

Red Warrior Dichoso was delighted to win her very first 21K race. The first few kilometers had not been easy for the Quezon native, but she pushed through nonetheless.
“The start was pretty challenging for me, but it was a good thing I was in the lead so I kept my pace and got the hang of it by the time I got to the turning point.” ~Macrose Dichoso~
Like Nicolas, Dichoso has also been joining and consistently winning her races at the MILO Marathon each year, ranging from 5K to 21K running events.

20-year-old Cellie Rose is one of the five siblings in the Jaro running family. Now a sophomore and varsity member at the University of the East, Jaro proves that balancing her studies with her running career can be achieved through determination and time management.
“I do long runs in the morning then focus on my studies in the afternoon. It’s really important to manage my time well.  I was not able to train much for this race because I have classes in the afternoon. For the National Finals, I will focus more on long runs to build up on my endurance.”~Cellie Rose Jaro ~
