So I committed to run Jeff’s Pinoy Fitness’ 10k race happening in two weeks. Ready na ba ko? Shempre hindi. Huhuhuhahaha. I used to hate running and up to now every time I’m on my last few minutes I still think that running isn’t for me. But knowing that I can now last 50 minutes on the treadmill gives me hope that I can really do this 10k race even though I haven’t been consistently training.
After how many weeks of nagging Jeff to help me find the right running shoes, we finally had a free afternoon to do so!
Here’s my photo wearing my first ever legit running shoes.
Watch the video Pinoy Fitness posted on his YouTube to see how I found this pair!
This was my paano-ko-nga-ba-masusustain-ang pace-ko-without-dying pose. Hahahaha!
Sorry, I don’t know much about my shoes except that it has made running way more fun for me! If you’ve watched the video you now know that I’m a heel striker and have a pronation. Huhuhuhu. So this Newton was recommended to me during my gait analysis at Runnr. Ang saya! Feeling legit runner na talaga ako guys. Heeheehee.
Not a fan of bright colored shoes but I figured this pair compliments my all-black activewear–may forever in my life guys, at ito ay black clothes! Hahaha.
If you wanna know more about choosing the right pair of shoes for different workout activities, you can watch The Fit Stop’s video HERE.

Enjoyed running 5k around BGC that afternoon (if you follow me on Instagram you’ve watched my stories!) despite the drizzle and the cool breeze. Problem ko talaga is I’m super lamigin and I tend to catch my breath even more when I’m running outdoors! Huhuhuhu.
I was aiming to do sub 1 (time under 1 hour) for my first 10k but now I’m just pushing myself to finish my first ever 10k. Again, I don’t know how you marathoners do it! Running for more than one hour is something I still consider impossible for me. Maybe in the next few months I’ll surprise myself and train to overcome running long distances but for now, my goal is to enjoy my very first 10k! Good luck to meeeee and good luck to everyone joining Pinoy Fitness Sub1 10k 2017 Challenge! 🙂
Thank you Jeff of Pinoy Fitness for pushing me & encouraging me to run! And also for accompanying me to find my first ever running shoes. You da best! 🙂
