getting back

Ondoy has come and gone. I’m a statistic. Life has to go on. On the flipside, my ITBs appreciated the forced rest. Ondoy did a lil bit of good afterall.

I finally went for a run today. Going back to my old routine would put things on track. After 4 days of no runs and nursing my ITB, the first few steps were not easy. I was waiting for the tightness and the pain. Nothing!

It was a very slow run. I just kept putting one foot in front of the other and before I knew it I was already 1 hour into the run. I tried to do striders at the end but the ITBs complained. It’s okay, I can sprint another day. For now, I’m just happy to be running again.

Slowly getting back my sanity. Slowly getting back to normal. Can’t wait.

Ondoy turned our place into a swamp but others are not so fortunate. If you want to give back and help out you might consider the relief efforts of Team Hardcore. They are calling it TKO250: Takbo Kontra Ondoy. Visit the site to get the complete details.

A side bet might be nice … double the pledge for a PR. Triple for a BQ time  🙂
