Yesterday morning, two elite runners (Male & Female) sponsored and supported by Bald Runner left Manila for Cebu City to compete in this Sunday’s World Heart Day 10K Run. I hope they will win in their respective categories.
At 4:30 AM this morning, I woke up and prepared myself for an early morning run at the UP Diliman Campus. After my morning ritual, I was already on the road (by car) at 4:50 AM and was able to reach the Campus at 5:20 AM. After stretching, I immediately started my run while it was still dark and with only about less than 10 runners/walkers on the road. After running for about 30 minutes, the number of runners and walkers increased to include the cyclists. Before I ended my workout, I could estimate that the number of runners/walkers and cyclists increased to more than a hundred.
Before it started raining, I was already doing my post-stretching exercises. The following were the data I gathered from my GF 305:
Distance—13.5 kms Time—1:17:25 hrs
Average Pace—5:44 mins/km Average Speed—10.4 kms/hr
Maximum Speed—13.2 kms/hr Total Calories—989 cal
Average HR—149 bpm Maximum HR—163 bpm
Total Ascent—273 meters Total Descent—276 meters
I am looking forward to more running workouts at the UP Diliman Campus.
