  4. i cant be bothered reading all of it so i just have one single questoin. my BFF is faster than me and she always teases me about it even though she is only a tiny bit fasteranyway back to the point, how can i get a bit faster so that i can be faster than her and she wont be able to tease me because i will be faster than her.

    1. Hey Meagan! Thanks for droppingby the blog.

      Unfortunately, there is no short cut to getting faster. You gotta run the runs. To increase efficiency and speed, include 1 or 2 speedworkouts to your sched. You need to build your endurance too. And to test your limits a tempo run will help a lot.

      And to simply things find a free online training program that is challenging enough.

      When you have the program, mark your goal race. Secret training is an option for “surprise” factor come race day. Haha

      Or better yet, schedule your harder runs with your friend. Fast friends are useful pacers.

      And on race day, for extra kick I fuel up with Gu Roctane.


  5. Hi Bards!

    Tignan mo tong video na to ni Coach Rio: Pinatakbo siya against an airplane ng friends niya. Astiiiig! Ang bilis pala niya. Anyway, naalala ko lang blog mo kasi I always read your blog. Runner din kasi ako. Haha!
