Running for Healthy Life Part 3

by - Monday, September 03, 2012

My last FUN RUN was 5 months ago(RUNNING FOR HEALTHY LIFE and RUNNING FOR HEALTHY LIFE PART2).  

Yesterday, September 2,2012 was my third time to join FUN RUN.  It really gives me a great big KICK-OFF to join this RUN for a cause.  It is an unplanned FUN RUN because I was told a day before the said event. But nevertheless, I say YES because I've been waiting for this RUN sponsored by the Philippine Red Cross: iVOLUNTEER: RUN for HUMANITY 2012.


Me and my friend Ca Cai
For my third time I chose to run the 7k just to make it more challenging from 3k to 5k and now accelerating mode to 7k.  :)





Just a different run I guess.  A run that I am not that prepared, a run that I have only one companion joining me, and that is Cai, and a run outside my University (The first and second run that I joined with is sponsored by ATENEO now this is different because it is outside my school).


FIRST FUN RUN: Run for SENDONG
SECOND FUN RUN: iRUN


On a practical side a novice runner like me has to practice running/jogging/walking just to make sure it will do great while running after all it is just a footrace to consider.  Nothing to worry, you can run, walk or rest on your own discretion.  That is FUN RUN for me.  Having fun while participating the said event.

So to make your body prepared have a warm-up exercise to make yourself better.  And by the way before we start we do warm-up.






  

Lining up to start the race, in this the 12k will do the first run. Headed by the Philippine Red Cross-Davao City Chapter Chairman: Dir. ANTONIO T.UY 





Followed by us, the 7k Runners.


While waiting for our time to....


READY.....


GET SET.......GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....



Now it is a great time to set new fitness goals.  I have to run to increase my mileage and decrease race time.  My first fun run I haven't put it on record but my second and third fun run should be put in my diary to have a track on my accomplishment, dedication and commitment that I have with this run.



FIRST FUN RUN:  3K - NO RECORD(Because it is my first to run, don't have an idea that I have to record it).  :(
SECOND FUN RUN: 5k - FINISH it for 1hr
THIRD FUN RUN:  7K - FINISH it for 1hr and 15mins and 20sec
                     AVE. Speed: 1.55m/s

LOOK SO TIRED!  WATER PLEASE!!!  :)


So far (for me) it is VERY GOOD!

Running at least different race distances from 3k to 7k, well I have to establish benchmark times at common race distances.  So that I can later evaluate my run if I do improve or not.  

It's FUN watching training PAY OFF.


FINISH.  I have my CERTIFICATE of PARTICIPATION Now.

MY CERTIFICATION


By the way this is my RACE BIB NUMBER

You must wear your race bib.  Put it on your front.  Do not fold it - -you could be disqualified.

and the route we follow

7k: From Roxas Ave. to Buhangin/Bajada Fly Over
