Rainy Season Starts

The rainy monsoon season officially started this week. In order for it to be declared, “officially here”, we needed to have at least 5 days of rain generating 25 mm (0.98 inches) of rainfall. These 5 days of rain must also include 3 consecutive days of at least 1 mm (0.039 inches) of rain. (Information from PAGASA Climate Monitoring and Prediction)

The daytime high temperatures should start should start to drop.

It makes for some enjoyable running. Wet, but enjoyable.

I did have to run inside a couple of times this week, due to standing water and a late start. Treadmills are still boring.

Back at it!

I’m happy to be back on the blogging scene.

It has been a long time getting relocated and building up the ambition again. For anyone who has gone through it and have come out the other side you will know what I mean.

Now relocated in Manila, I have renewed my desire and drive to run 100 miles. One must start at the beginning and build up the mileage at a smart pace. I have run every day for the last 10 days and have kept my miles down on purpose. My legs are starting to remember how to move and I have had no aches and pains so far. Hip stretching right from the beginning should keep the IB stress to a minimum.

Also I have started flying for a new Company which is exciting. Some of my future posts are going to combine flying and running.

Lets get started!

Rain In The Jungle (old post)

I found this post in the Draft file)


The rain is back again with a vengeance. My sunrise run in the jungle was between thunderstorms and dodging the mud holes. I am still trying out the MAF method and since I am still injury free, I will keep it up. My running isn’t as consistent as it will become when my schedule settles down. So building my base up seems to be a good idea.

Monkey Runs

Tuesday’s first run was humid. I waited until after sunrise for the rain to end before venturing out for a 5k run. The air was wet with 95% humidity and 80 degrees. I ran at an easy MAF pace. The monkeys were out of the jungle in big groups to watch the funny man run past. They have such an amused expression of their face, that I think they find my exercise another strange thing humans do.

I have to say that my body was very sore from the EMS exercise I did over the weekend. It seems that not keeping up with the exercise has caused my body to start from scratch again. I realize that in a few weeks, my body will be used to the EMS and I will not be as sore.
