I was happy to run despite a lack of sleep from work. Work starts at 10pm to 6am for me and the time for sleep can’t really be scripted. It’s either I was too groggy or couldn’t understand if I was just sleepy. But for today I just decided to sleep from 8am till around 12noon then decided to run as it was getting hot. The sun was peering into the room despite the drapes and I hate a glint of light when sleeping but I won’t complain because I made a run through our neighborhood in the mid afternoon. I hate running and the only thing that keeps me going is the urge to exercise. If it wasn’t for a gps unit and a track analysis software to me it’s non-sense. Being a smoker isn’t the best complement for running. I went to the grocery store to buy the essentials and bought myself some nutrition water and cereal bars just to give me a bit of boost. It was the same kind of neighborhood run where I had to pace a pedicab to make running smoother and tried to avoid wandering street dogs.My legs were like jelly and just had to overcome it. I wanted to fit it in my schedule so I could sleep at least another hour in the late afternoon. Even as I write this and had done finishing the uploading process and a quick shower my sweat is still pouring out from my pores with the airconditioning at full blast. The walls of this house just seem to ooze like an oven. I do really miss being in the water as always but for now this will do and hopefully in the next few days.
It’s my first exercise after work and it couldn’t be worst than being light headed but I expected that. I decided to do a quick sweat just around the neighborhood of Villamonte, Bacolod City as driving to the port didn’t appeal to me for now. I only had a window of one hour as my file at the NBI was going to be reprinted so instead of waiting I decided to run. It was hot as usual with no wind but the sound of the real neighborhood of stray dogs and pedicabs could be a uncomfortable one. Am glad the newer model GPS 401 had much more reception that narrow streets through residential houses didn’t record “spikes” while uploading. I honestly didn’t like the run as I had no idea if I was going to turn left or right. I guess I just wanted a clear path without no obstructions and distractions so I hired the services of an old man manning his pedicab for the last 1km. and told him to pace me so I have something to follow and if i tell him to go faster to do so as well. He obliged and at the last stretch I told him to pick up the pace and with his age of around 65 or more he gingerly did it. For a 10peso running buddy it looked fun as neighbors were wondering why this white haired pedicab driver was pushing pedals on a faster cadence and I myself was amused but thanked him for his effort and he replied the same.
