Nike Run Clinic Session 25

Last night was another “Just do it” session, being somewhat similar to the previous session at Ultra.  We thought that it was an “unloading” or recovery session based on what was listed on the Nike Run Clinic site.  We started with some new routines so we thought that it was the course of the session but afterwards we were grouped again for the intervals.  Here are my stats:

Distance Time Pace
Warm-up  400M 1:35 3:59
Intervals  800M
800M
800M
800M
800M
3:06
2:58
3:13
3:21
3:21
3:52
3:42
4:01
4:11
4:11
2000M 9:48 4:54
Total: 6400M

I guess we went a little overboard with our times which were much better than last week’s.   I think I even reached my 80-100% maximum heart rate (MHR) during one of the intervals.

Tuesday nights at Ultra

There was a large turnout of people again at Ultra last night (like in the previous weeks).

Please keep inner lanes clear for faster runners

I have a strong hunch on who might’ve placed this sign.

Insider Scoop

Due to the still increasing popularity of running in the country Nike Philippines may extend the duration of the Run Clinic.  I’m not sure if I have the liberty of telling how long this “extension” is so it’s better to ask Coach Rio himself.

Like I mentioned on my blog last week, Nike Clinic was indeed featured on TV last Saturday on the show of Jessica Soho.  Too bad that I missed it but I’ve heard it was just a short segment (so chances are our shots were edited out).

Nike still has some surprises up its sleeve—what it is remains a surprise even to myself (we weren’t able to coax Coach Rio to spill the beans) but if you’re itching to find out (like myself) better attend this Friday’s session at Nike Park BHS.  If my flight wasn’t a few hours later I’d most likely be there.

That about rounds up my last Nike Run Clinic session at Ultra (for now).  To my classmates whom I just got the chance to talk with last night, I’m pleased to meet you all!

Before I leave I’d like to thank Nike Philippines for this wonderful initiative we call the “Run Clinic” and of course all the coaches that bear with us every session, headed of course by Coach RioThank you very much! I’ll surely miss this activity while I’m away.

    Extended ang NIKE classes? Naku Den, ULTRA will be too tight a running place na these coming months.. Hey, here’s this never ending ‘happy trip’ wishes, haha! Basta, forget everything but NOT our PASALUBONG. 🙂

    > Longer than you’d expect. Ultra would be Ultra-tight! 🙂

    Hehe we’ll see if my budget allows me to

    Hi Dennis. With your workout times, you don’t have to worry about running in the outer lanes. We have had issues such as this in SF where we have as many as 100 people using the track at one time. About half of them should be on the outer lanes. Fortunately, we haven’t had any problems as each runner knows their limitations.

    Take care and say hello to everyone for me including Coach Rio

    > People just needed to be informed. The situation improved right after Bald Runner posted some signs around the track.
