Virtual Training Run #6

I stumbled upon the blogs of E-Rods and The Bull Runner and they are having a Virtual Training Run #6. I decided to join. I wasn’t able to run last Sunday due to the rain and I want to catch up with my mileage for the week. This is just a good time to run.

This is how it works:

Runners separated by geography do a training run “together” wherever they may be in the world. We set a distance (more or less) and meet at a specific time, so 6:00 am Manila time.

DATE: 30 July 2008, Wednesday (Manila time)
TIME: 6:00 A.M. (Manila time)
DISTANCE: 10 km/6 miles (or whatever you wish)

The following are past participants and most of them have already committed to joining us. After the training session, each participant writes a quick recap of the session so that each of us benefits from this collective effort. If you don’t have a blog you can register for free at www.takbo.ph and post your running account at the forums under Running Related >> Training >> Virtual Run #6.

*If you have an injury that keeps you from running, participate by cycling, swimming, blading or anything that involves self-propelled constant motion.

I haven’t met these runners personally. I guess, that’s one of the essence of the virtual training run.

I’ll be running on my usual route. From my boarding house to Buendia and to the Paseo Traingle in Ayala. I might run up to Edsa and take the overpass at the Ayala MRT for a steep run on the stairs. Then I’d follow my way back to the boarding house to finish the run. Using Google Earth, that will be about 10.2 kms if I add 1 run at the triangle.

Missing Milo

I won’t be able to join the Milo Marathon.  I wasn’t able to register and registration is already closed.  There will be no onsite registration.  Goodluck to all the runners.  I might be a race crasher there if we decide to jog at CCP Area.  😀  Quennie and I did that the last time.
