Week in Review

surf city marathon 2015, registration confirmation,

Another weekend. Another long run. And today’s run was 19 miles. As of today, the Surf City Marathon is 3 weeks away, and it leaves me with only 2 long weekend runs. The Surf City Marathon sent out the registration confirmation emails to all the registrants this week. Read More…


Tempo, Cadence, Stride Length!

What a difference! That’s what I wanted to see as soon as I was done running, and that is what I saw!  Read More…

Never Forget to Pace Yourself!

16 mile run, training, boston marathon, surf city marathon,

I totally messed up today’s tracking on my Garmin watch by pressing the wrong button after waiting at the light, so it didn’t record a couple of miles till I realized that and resumed it for the mile and half or so. Thus, I’ve decided to use the data recorded on my MapMyRun app. It’s not as accurate as the data recorded with the Garmin, but it gives an idea as to what I’d like to briefly talk about on this post.

Stride length, it is.


What a fabulous, overcast day to do a long run! 16 miles along the beach, and most of all, the perfect temperature (63 degrees) in spite of the sun peeking through the clouds in the early part of the run. Read More…

Back to square one!

cadence, stride frequency, stride length,

Today was the day when I put my cadence to the test! With my Garmin Forerunner 310XT and a foot pod on, I was really anxious about measuring my most accurate cadence to date. Also, I was excited about putting on my new Asics Gel-Kayano 21 and the FootBalance insoles. Read More…

3 mile recovery run on day of 2014 NYC Marathon


I had a feeling that I could run. And I wanted to run. It was a recovery run time. At least 2-3 miles, I told myself.

The temperature has dropped due to the rain Friday night, so I decided not to go hiking Saturday morning while giving my left foot more time to rest. So, part of me wanted to make up for the lack of outdoor exercise and also to see where it is at in terms of my left foot’s recovery progress. Like I noted in the previous post, it has been already over a month since the injury occurred, and as a matter of fact, I have seen a gradual recovery progress, including the recent 10 minute runs on the treadmill. But I couldn’t hold it back any longer. It was time to put it to the test. In the street. Even just for 3 miles. Read More…

I had a few moments where I just wanted to give it up, but I kept pushing myself and eventually when I reached about 16 miles, I knew I could get this done. There were two things that I was able to push myself by. 1. considering how much effort I have put in up to this point, the idea of just dropping everything seems to be just plain waste of my life, and 2. this blog.
