It’s quite funny actually, I’m giving advice to other people to taper-off for the Condura Run but last night I’m the first one to break my advice. As I was writing my previous blog yesterday night I was having a dilemma if I was to continue running or not. Although it seemed like I was convinced to play safe and stop running, I myself wasn’t completely sold to the idea.
At first I went to Ultra just to talk to Coach Rio about Nike’s sponsorship of my Condura Run (which I got, yay!). I arrived at the Ultra early so I was tempted to “jog.” It was a very easy jog so I figured it’s okay. I also got to talk to some of the coaches and Clinic participants and I quickly got the sentiment that most people joining the race this Sunday (particularly the 21K runners) are quite concerned with injury—thus became the theme of the Nike Clinic session.
Since I was already in the area I was eventually “invited” to join the session (thus deviating me from my “jogging”). Before I knew it I was sprinting. Eventually I have to excuse myself from being absorbed too much with the session so after a final 1 mile run I called it a day. I managed to accumulate 4.1K with this visit to Ultra.
Now that I got that running out of my system, it’s time for me to visit the gym for some “easy” cross-training. Thank goodness I have the Health & Nutrition Seminar and Carbo-loading Party, all courtesy of takbo.ph, to keep me occupied the rest of the week.
