some boo boos and couple of props

i’ve earlier said how i’m not at all satisfied with my runs. but the birth of la rouge sofia, gave me the much needed boost. i know, i’m one shallow lass :-)

tbr advised me how hassle it is not to have an armband, i immediately scored one. since it’s on sale, i thought it was a steal!

geeez! it was only at home i realized it’s impossible to use with the receiver . arrrg! i bought the wrong armband! now i have to buy another one…waaah! i’m a twat!

ipod nano arm band

that cheeky chap S, said i have cankles (calf size ankles :p). sometimes i think it’s a curse but most of the time i think it’s a gift cos i feel it adds stability to my lower body. but as i pull my last remaining days of run for the kotr, my calf muscles are aching really bad, which make me now think my cankles have no purpose at all. my cankles are just big and nothing more.

i’m fooling myself if i’d say i’m at my best shape for the weekend run, but i told myself last week..i will try to live healthy in the next days. i’d drink water more regularly (i only drink 2-3 glasses a day) and would sleep at least 7 hours at night. but man! old habits are just really difficult to stop. in the last four days i’m back to my normal self, with 3 glasses of water for the entire day and slept 3 hours only. waaaah! i’d age faster than anyone.

last saturday chalahs saw o13 at trinoma. and oh boy! i thought im way past over him, but i guess i HAVE NOT and i think i will NEVER BE. geeez! i can never look again to jolie with admiration…cos my envy of her on hooking the hankiest hank is back. haha! i’m crazy! boo!

with soo many boo boo moments lately, i think it’s important for me to celebrate little victories.

i can now comfortably run 7k. i know i’m registered for the 10k (thanks to hitme64 for registering me!). and it’s only few more days before the run, but if i turn chicken now, i’m finished. so might as well focus on the positive stuff :p

my nike + record say i have an ave. pace of 7’03”/km. whether it is fast or slow (which i think is the case), i still am happy cos i can now see my stats and monitor how i progress.

i’ve overcame temptation to book for a late afternoon flight to hk on sunday. gregmontee has a business meeting next week in hk. and since i have free roundtrip tickets to hk (thanks to mileage rewards program :p) i got so tempted to join gregmontee if only to see back to basics concert of aguilera which will be on 3rd jul at asia world arena. i thought of even inviting my soul sistah C, who lives there in kowloon side, to see the concert too. i owe her big time and since it’s gonna be her brrpday on 29th, it would be a perfect way to celebrate with us. but after absorbing the economics of it, even with my free flights and free accommodations, i’d still be shelling out substantial amount for the hk trip. it’s something i least wanted to do at this point.

so there, i decided not to go, and see the concert here instead at the fort. i consoled myself with the idea that if i decided to miss john legend’s show last january (and to think i was already there in hk then) whom btw i think is a genius, why would i even think of going to hk to see aguilera when she is not even my fave? :p ok i’d luv to see how her most rave about productions (even compared to that of madonna’s and mj’s – why i like to see it in the first place) but she is staging it too here at the fort…a 10minute drive from my place with much much less cost…plus i can score a 20% discount for the tickets (thanks to globe platinum) hahaha! ok ok. i think i’m still trying to convince myself here more than anything else. sure, i’m a happy camper:p

finally, i got the call that would in a way, change the course of my life. yeahyeah! :-) not that i’m saying i‘m now unhappy and unsatisfied. but when you have reached that point when everything seems to follow a routine, and things become business as usual, you’d start considering the next better opportunity that knocks on your door. even if it is still 4 months down the line, the thought that it is now definite and confirm, you can’t be thankful enough :-)

    eto na uli litanya ko: kahit naging routine na, swerte ka masaya ka sa ginagawa mo (tama?). i wish i can say the same, it’s very rare you find people who can ultimately say they like and are happy with what they do for a living, no questions asked.

    anywhere but here, ika nga.

    hitme64, thanks thanks grabe! see you on thurs, coffee is on me ;p i just hope i wont fail you on sunday and be able to finish the stretch. i get chicken na kase eh :)

    abby, at least you have a partner to share with even your most mundane day. it spells the difference! you know wot i mean ;)

    love john legend! watch his concert (with corrine bailey rae) in berkeley a couple months ago. grabe, galing! he’s with me all the time: in my ipod, at home (cd player)and in the office. hehehe, obsession na yata etoh!

    glad you’re moving on to new job. wish i can do that myself, but without an MPA my choices (including pay) are limited. i guess, this means i really have to work on finishing that darn degree; soon i hope.

    congrats bangge! cheers to you and your upcoming journey.

    cankles?!? hey, i’ve seen your ankles and they are not cankles. :) if your calf muscles have been aching lately, i suspect you might be pushing yourself a bit hard these last days before the race. it’s time now to just take it easy and taper before the sunday.

    so, congratulations on that change that’s coming up in your life, though i’m still in the dark about it ;)

    watch out kotr. here comes banggigay!

    nel, i’m soo jealous. got a tight sked kse in hk. pero looking back, i should have adjusted my sked to accommodate “the legend”. wrong move talaga!

    e-rod, i do. i do have it :-) hindi lang halata sa photos kse nagsa-sideview ako madalas. hehe. aye. maybe, i need rest in the next days. kase naman i’m afraid not to finish the 10k. or finish it cross-eyed :p

    Ako madalas pag nagmamadali namamali ako ng bili. Hehe.

    Wow! You’re a really serious runner. I used to run heavily before, pero pumayat ako sobra so I run only fron 20-30 min na lang.

    Congrats on that new opportunity of your!
