Sunday mornings are great times to run in Manila. The streets are almost empty for the first couple hours after sunrise. Crowds of people are out Jogging and riding. Many more are out for an early walk.
It just seems more peaceful and easier to go longer on Sunday mornings.
I can’t say the same about weekday mornings, but I have been out most mornings, building up my mileage to get a good base.
I am still injury free and I believe it is because I have run smarter, not faster.
Running “trails” in Global City.
My goals are slowly evolving. This past couple of weeks I have been getting more comfortable with a 20 minute run at sunrise. Now it feels like I want to get a little more challenged again.
My body is starting to remember how to run without stress. My schedule is becoming more illuminated. As always, I will have to stay adaptable to changing conditions. The 2017 Bataan 160 is becoming a race I think I can do. Ironically it is called the Bataan Death March 160.
Everyone has to make their own goals.
I think this will be a reoccurring theme. Running in the rain is enjoyable for me and I don’t tend to cancel my run unless it becomes too much. The temperature this morning at sunrise was a cool 76 degrees. (24C) With a light rain falling I was able to double my distance from 2 days ago. Easy does it.
