Weekend Wars

Posted by on 10. November 2011

Runners and triathletes always look forward to weekends as it is the time they increase the mileage in their bike and run training or brick training to build their endurance base or it’s the time they take all the preparations they had and enter the race arena.  November 5 and 6 is a big weekend for Team Total Fitness as the team took part in back to back runs at Bonifacio Global City and it was also the debut of Team Total Fitness Tri  at Anvaya Cove.

Energizer Run – November 5, 2011

Bonifacio Global City – Team Total Fitness braved the rainy skies as it joined thousands of runners powered by energizer head lights running in the 3K and 10K Category. Team Total Fitness Members Rojan Pajarin, Mario Tani and Franc Ramon ranked 12th (12:43), 27th (15:58) and 54th(17:54), respectively in the 3K race category out of more 1,000 runners and James Orlanda ranked 34th (51:02) in the 10K race category out of more than 700 runners.

New Balance Power Run – November 6, 2011

Bonifacio Global City – It was another rainy day run for the team but of course, it won’t stop the team from taking part in the New Balance Power Run.  The team did well with Rojan Pajarin placing 49th out of more than a 1,000 runners in the tough 25K category with a time of 2:04:07 and Charles Dominic Diño placing 38th place out of more 1,000 runners in the 10K category with a time of 50:11.

    BGC in day one and then Bataan in day two?!? Wow! That is really some weekend. I’m just curious since you did mention that the race still continued even during the rains, doesn’t it affect you the following day? I got curious about it after my grandmother reminded me not to take a shower immediately after I did a bit of jogging around my home today because “baka mapasma ako”. It that even true based on your experience?

      Run both events in the rain. Actually, you don’t really get sick running in the rain. What gets you sick is if its too windy and its too cold or the weather shifts from hot to cold unless you have a weak immune system.
