Throwback Sub 1
Finishing my first sub 1 10K in early in 2011 was not only a one hour effort. It meant months of preparation and shaving of a full 17 minutes of my first 10K run months before. It was a journey and a process of building up speed, endurance, mental toughness and confidence. The actual race was even a lot more exciting and a test of character as I felt some muscle stiffness in the 8th Kilometer and held on for a 59:54 time for 10K. Yes, it’s just 6 seconds and just a few gasp in meeting the sub 1 hour goal but it felt that really satisfying and all the months of training was well worth it. Finally, my first sub 1 hour 10K.
“Never say you can’t do it unless you give it a big hard try.”

You can also test your mettle and finish a 10K run in 1 hour as Pinoy Fitness brings you their Sub 1 10K Challenge on September 22, 2013 at Bonifacio Global City. Tick of that Sub 1 hour 10K bucket list in this race as Pinoy Fitness creates the perfect environment with a wave start based on pace as follows:

You’ll have all the leg room to run your fastest and be your best and the Bonifacio Global City provides a familiar ground for you to conquer and at the end of the run is a sub-1 medal for those who reach the finish line and for those who failed to meet the cut, I’m sure running alongside this speedster will give you a really good time for 10K and the adrenalin rush would want you asking for more races that challenge your speed.
