Went on another round of running workout this morning. I got up 30 minutes late so I hurriedly prepared myself for my workout. I started around 7 in the morning. The sun was higher and quite hotter from my usual 6:30 call time. I started running, with that “unprepared” feeling. My body were not in a good mood today so it ended up with a hurting ankle on my left foot, good thing, it’s okay now. Will do a good foot rest tonight to make me go again this Friday or Saturday. 🙂
Today, I’ve started my day with running although I’ve only slept for 5 hours (approx). December mornings are very cold, so I’m quite struggled to get up and warm myself before hitting the running roads.
I’m actually surprised that I reached the first kilometer at 5:50 pace, but sooner turned to 6:05 pace/km. Not bad at all, although i felt like my legs are a bit tired for today, I still own it.
One of the songs that gets me going the whole run is this:
Definitely, one of my favorite Anneke’s song from her solo albums
Other songs included in my “Let’s Run!” playlist are:
Megadeth – Five Magics
Pantera – Goddamn Electric
Rush – The Spirit of Radio
Stratovarius – Eagleheart
Epica – Menace of Vanity
Arch Enemy – Ravenous
Puddle of Mudd – Drift & Die
Woke up with stuffy nose due to allergic rhinitis, but that didn’t hinder me from going out for a run. I, maybe, 1 hour late from my assembly time. I did it great and I think better than any of my previous records.
My not so tired feet! LOL. I took this photo during my “cool down”.
After running, I make sure that I re-hydrate myself with water and cool down (thru some more exercise and stretching) since muscles are contracted after doing workout. Also, eating after running isn’t a crime. In fact, you really need carbohydrates after running! This time, my all time favorite post-running workout breakfast meal is: Sliced Boiled egg with sliced tomato!
Earlier this morning, I finally made a good 5km-run although I felt restless since I only slept for about 5 hours, and felt like I only have catnap the entire hours. Also, during the run, I felt tired right away after hitting the second kilometer, so take about 5 minutes rest by walking and did some stretching. As I’m reaching the last kilometer, I felt my appendix are shaking so I hurriedly stop. Anyway, here’s a lovely result though.
After almost a month of hiatus due to unconditional weather every morning, at last, I made a quick run this morning. A big BOO for me for not completing a 5KM run in the 33 minutes time. Well, 0.3km more and it’s there, but yeah quite felt injured though. And the roads are too wet and not comfortable to run to.
