Run for your Resolutions

Nike Run Clinic Session 15 (Season 2?)

After the very long holidays it’s the best time start burning those unwanted calories or simply to get back into shape.  Tonight’s session was the first this year and after the recovery sessions last December (the last ones I attended) it’s time to get back to business.  This time it’s about actually starting to realize…

Nike Run Clinic Session 09

You thought I’d lost count didn’t you?  Well I actually did, I just had to count the sessions since my last appearance.  I missed the clinic so much that even if I’m anything but good I just had to attend it—and I’m glad I did. After two weeks of being AWOL I’m finally back to…

Nike Run Clinic Session 04

This was my first Nike Run Clinic session at Bonifacio High Street and unfortunately I got there quite late.  It was my first time to go for a run session on a Friday so I actually forgot about it until before 7PM!  By that time, being a Friday and a payday, traffic was really heavy…

Nike Run Clinic Session 03

Nike Running Clinic Day One: Assessment

The Nike Running Clinic has formally started.  Unlike the classroom-like session of the orientation, last night’s session makes you feel like an athlete, well, sort of, because the session was held in the Ultra oval.  Plus you have real coaches to assist you and answer your questions. I got to Ultra past 7pm (I walked…

Nike Running Clinic Day Zero: Orientation

The orientation for the running clinic was held at the Brent Gym inside the Ultra premises last Friday, November 14, 2008 and was mainly hosted by Coach Rio dela Cruz.  It was my first time inside Ultra so I was a bit surprised at the condition of the gym: it was a bit run down…
