Back In Jamindan

27 December 2007/Thursday Run

From Iloilo City, I have to travel by land to reach my camp in Jamindan and it takes 2 1/2 hours non-stop trip. Immediately after my arrival in the camp, I changed to my running attire and started my stretching exercises.

I started my run at 5:00 PM and finished my run and brief workout at 7:15 PM. I ran along my 2-mile route inside the camp. The following were my elapsed time every round:

1st round—17:41 mins

2nd round—16:17 mins

3rd round—16:33 mins

4th round—17:19 mins

5th round—17:53 mins

6th round—20:39 mins (cool-down run)

Using my 20-lb Dumbbells, I did the following exercises:

3 X 10 reps—Side Lateral Raise

3 X 10 reps—Frontal Raises

3 X 10 reps—Hammer Curl

3 X 10 reps—Dumbbell Squats

3 X 10 reps—Dumbbell Shoulder Press

3 X 20 reps—Dumbbell Pullover

Other Exercises Done:

5 X 20 reps—Inclined, Knee-Bent Sit-Ups

3 X 20 reps—Push-Ups

20 minutes—Stretching

I ran 12 miles or 19.2 kilometers in 1:46:22 hours. My average pace was 8:52 mins per mile or 5:32 mins per kilometer. This was an easy run workout.

Wednesday Workout

26 December 2007

It was raining the whole day in Manila. I planned to have a 12-mile run inside Fort Bonifacio and Libingan ng mga Bayani on this day but the weather was really bad for running. Instead, I had a simple workout inside my quarters in Fort Bonifacio which made me sweat a lot!

I did the following Dumbbell exercises with my 15-lb Dumbbell set and other exercises:

         5 X 15 reps  Biceps Curl

         5 X 15 reps  Dumbbell Flyes

         5 X 15 reps  Dumbbell Lifts

         5 X 15 reps  Triceps Extension

         3 X 30 reps  Side Bends with Dumbbells—each side (Left & Right)

         5 X 50 reps  Knee Bends with Hands holding Dumbbells on sides

         5 X 50 reps  Heel Raises with Hands holding Dumbbells

         5 X 30 reps  Push-Ups

         5 X 30 reps  Bent-Knee Sit-Ups

         20 minutes  Stretching before and after the workout.
