Rock ‘n’ Roll Ready?!

Snapshot 2009-06-08 20-56-21

It is only 3 weeks til my first marathon. After weeks and weeks of running and building my endurance and tolerance to pain, I finally logged my longest run – 30kms. Woohoo!

It was a slow and relaxed run. It was also a sort of dress rehearsal for me. Asics Gel Kayano 15 was superb in taming my plantar fasciitis and my feet are blister-free c/o Wright DLX socks. SUGOi Merlin 2-in-1 shorts completes my dress rehearsal. I haven’t decided on what shirt to wear (something yellow maybe?) but I sure need bodyglide or nipple guards.

Β This weekend, I will be going for 20 miles/32 kms (or more) and it will be tapering after that.

  1. Grabe! 30 km for a practice run? 12km na lang, full marathon na! I don’t think I’ll ever achieve that in my lifetime . . . you and jay’s and the other runner bloggers’ dedication and perseverance are so amazing.

    Good luck Wilbert. Kayang-kaya mo na yan.

    Thanks for the b-day greetings. When is your birthday so I could also greet you?

    thanks Nora. hopefully i would survive my first marathon. tapos na birthday ko. it was last month and i had a birthday run in Vancouver Canada. πŸ™‚

  2. Vaseline worked wonders for me. Good luck Wilbert. I’m sure you will have a great time there. Let’s Rakenrol!

    does vaseline stain? a sports and recreational shop is just a few blocks away for me kaya i can easily grab bodyglide. i’m ready to rock n roll!
