This past week was all about pain and excitement – dealing with the unexpected pulled back muscle, followed by a recovery run, and keeping up with cardio via cycling at the gym. More recovery runs are in order now, but I am definitely not rushing it. Read More…

cycling class, cycling, gym, cardio, sweat,

Second week of recovery. While working on my cardio in cycling class, I’ve decided to revisit my diet as well. It isn’t a drastic overhaul of my diet yet, but it surely is the beginning. This is something that I am going to do more research of and evaluate in the weeks to come as I am slowly recovering from my foot injury. Read More…

Week 16: Morning Runs and Carbo-Loading Meal Plan

The past week went well in terms of racking in the anticipated amount of mileage. And also, I came across a Runner’s World carbo-loading meal plan (a few weeks prior to a marathon race), which I found quite different from my carbohydrate concentrated meals (mostly pasta). And I put it to the test for the weekend long run, and the results are… so far so good. Read More…

Fartlek Run and Daniels’ Running Formula

Fartlek had to come in the picture.

When I decided to work with the new training program, I was quite excited about the new challenges and the new possibilities.

But my right foot injury occurred. Since then, I’ve been anxiously waiting for the plantar fasciitis to lapse. Although it is mild, and as much as I want to get the training started, I didn’t want to take a chance. So, I haven’t even walked to work like I did before when my left foot in a worse shape. Part of me figured that my right foot could use rest while not walking at all. Read More…

This rather came as a surprise. Although I knew it was there, I didn’t think that it would become an injury that ended up sidelining me. Again. It was the inflammation of the plantar fascia, which caused a bit of heel pain. At least, it is minor, and I know how to remedy this.

Painful Surf City Marathon

Today was supposed to be the day when I put all my training to the test at the Surf City Marathon. Today was supposed to be the day when I would find out if I was fast enough to qualify for the Boston Marathon. And everything went as planned. Until the last minute when the race began, that is. But I was able to manage that. However, it turned out that I wasn’t meant to make my dream a reality today. Read More…

14 miler, Cadence and New Gel Kayano 21

cadence, stride frequency, stride length,


As it was scheduled, I went for a 14 mile run yesterday. And my main focus was to maintain my recently increased cadence and to increase stride length (SL). It was a perfect day to add a significant amount of miles as the temperature recently dropped significantly due to the rain storm that we had a couple of days ago, so, I couldn’t think of any better place to finish this run other than at the Venice Beach Pier.
