Let the training begin…

Our training officially started on January 17 with a 1 kilometer broken swim time trial. After deducting the 30 seconds rest in between every 100 meters, I finished it in about 34 minutes. Gosh! That was terribly slow!! My best time last year for a kilometer swim was 30 minutes! I guess too much chocolates during the holiday season created all that drag. My right leg seemed to be raising up too when I turn, oh well, coach said drills will correct this on next training day.

Yesterday, it was a run test! After a 10 minute warm up, we were made to run on our comfortable speed and then we had to increase the speed to .5 of a mile every minute until we felt that we have reached our maximum. After 7 miles per hour, I was seeing stars in front of me! Again, that was slow too 🙁

Tonight, there will be no test, thank God, it will be just yoga to help improve my core and balance. I recommend everyone to try yoga cause it takes away all the stress I’ve had for the day. It gives the inner mind peace and the relaxation after a busy day at home or work.

So, why not try a yoga session and discover how to integrate the mind, body and spirit to achieve a state of oneness with the universe?

About pinayironmom

Pinay Ironmom is a typical mom who wakes up before 6 am to prepare my 3 children for school. After this, I make my husband coffee, similar to the Nescafe commercial on TV of a couple's typical morning. Work is normally a tour of Northern or Southern Luzon to inspect projects we are building, checking quality of designs or preparation of presentations to prospective clients. My schedule is flexible luckily, I can squeeze in hearty lunches with my favorite lunchmate and training early in the afternoon or right after business hours. Weekends are bike days on Saturdays at MOA or Daang Reyna and Sunday is my me time - my long run day. Oh warm ups and stretchings are trips to the grocery, cool down is hearing mass and giving thanks to God for a wonderful week. This is ME :)
