So that didn’t work

Okay, so it seems like I’m adopting one of the most utterly frustrating traditional Filipino traits passionately called “ningas kugon.” This means enthusiastically starting things but not being able to maintain this enthusiasm most often resulting to not completing the task at all.

Yup. That’s me. Not proud of it. But looking at how I start and stop this blog so abruptly, I seem to be embracing the trait wholeheartedly. This has got to change. Let me reinvent this blog. Watch out for this space. It will have a drastic change. Not sure how soon, but it will. Scout’s honor!

By the way, if anyone is curious, wait. What am I saying? Of course no one i curious. I don’t have any readership! Hahaha! Anyway, I finished the stupid half marathon in a little under 3 hours (xbox did help). Then I proceeded to finish the marathon in a little more than six hours, four cramps in different parts of my leg, several callouses, and a body ache that lasted for the whole week. Numbers that I’m not proud of, but I finished nonetheless. HA! In your face!

For the meantime, I think that’s the only thing I can share for now. I’m actually working in a coffee shop with erotic music playing in the background. Maybe that’s why I got sidetracked into visiting this blog. Another fine example of a wonderful trait. Yup, that would be short attention span. My God, I’m like a preschooler!

See you next time!

Training for the full

First of all, I have created this blog initially for myself. I will be running my first full marathon this coming July. Having no less than the longest running marathon in the country as a stage. I will be using this as my tool to track my progress for the upcoming run.

Date of the run is July 4, which gives me about 3 weeks to prepare. Yup, you’re right. I’m gonna die!  That’s too short a time for preparation for this big run. But still, I have made up my mind. I’m going to go through it. Good luck to me! Bahala na si Batman! ;p
