After two days rest since Sunday’s 7th DND-AFP Half-Marathon Race, I had my long slow distance run this morning. My run started around the vicinity of the Old Gate 1 of Fort Bonifacio and went towards the back of the S & R Store and later to Kalayaan Road. From Kalayaan Road, I traced the road/route back to The Fort as part of the route last Sunday’s Half-Marathon. I passed by the Bonifacio High Street Loop and went around for almost five times before proceeding to MC Home Depot. There were runners, bikers and walkers going around the said loop.
After running a distance of 11 kilometers, I had my water stop at the Comfort Room of MC Donalds near HSBC. From this point I proceeded to Lawton Avenue and turned left at Bayani Road and went inside the Libingan ng mga Bayani.. I had two rounds around the Libingan, taking the outermost roads and stopped my run after my GF 305 registered a distance of 20 kilometers. I asked for some drinking water from the Office of the Grave Registration Unit inside the Libingan after I stopped my run. I had my stretching for 15 minutes before finally walking towards Gate 3 of Fort Bonifacio and ultimately reaching my quarters.
The following were the data taken from my GF 305. I forgot to use my Heart Rate Monitor Belt.
