A Trip to the Chiropractor at InterCare Makati

I have never been to a chiropractor before because honestly, I don’t know what it was exactly for, but when I had the chance to try it out at InterCare (Makati) I didn’t think twice and found out what it was all about.

A Year Into Running: The Pre-Garmin Era

From a humble 5K start it’s inevitable that you’d seek “higher grounds.”  After disappointment of not being able to join a race because of a gadget requirement I was inspired when I saw the next race headed our way: the adidas King of the Road (KOTR).  Just imagining myself running atop Kalayaan flyover makes me…

Last Night at the Nike Run Clinic

Believe it or not, the Nike Run Clinic is still ongoing and is extended indefinitely.  By this time the first batch should’ve finished but by popular demand the clinic is here to stay, so if you just got the running fever and want to join a clinic you may still do so by going to…

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…

Nike Run Clinic Session 23

“If you think running is difficult, stop thinking.” I could probably describe last night’s session with this quote.  Just thinking about doing 5x800M with a pace of 3:45/800M ±15 seconds was tiring enough, so I just said to myself, “Just do it!”  (Now I think I understand where Nike got this slogan.) Together with some…

Nike Run Clinic Session 21

Yes I’m still keeping count of the number of sessions, and we’re more than halfway through the entire Clinic program.  If you’re wondering why my posts skip a session it’s because I usually am not able to join the Friday sessions of the clinic at BHS (traffic going to Fort Bonifacio on Friday nights are…

Nike Run Clinic Session 19

Like the previous session, last night’s session was jam packed!  For some reason the clinic just seemed to double its participants.  Running must really be getting popular!  As usual we started with a 5 lap easy warm-up run around the oval (2K) followed by the routines.  I arrived a bit late (a nasty habit) so…

Nike Run Clinic Session 17

It’s another great run session at the Ultra continuing where we left off from last week. Warming up was a bit of a problem for some as the temperature was mild.  It takes a bit more time before our muscles get really warm and we perspired less, but this made running more pleasant.  Like past…

Run for your Resolutions

This was one of the announcements made by Coach Rio during the last Nike Run Clinic session: an LSD at UP Diliman Campus on Sunday, January 11, 2009.  Here’s the excerpt from the Nike Running website: Kick Start your 2009 Resolutions Published: January 4, 2009 It’s that time of year again, a new year with…

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…
