Training Blues

Filed under: Ramblings,Training — levyang @ 4:03 am

Seems like everyone coming down with something these days.  Each of my children together with the wifey had their own bouts with the flu.  Even the bloggers I frequent had their own ‘flu’ stories to tell.  I guess it’s just a matter of time that I’ll have my own story to share.  Well, lo and behold, I finally did get sick the other day. It’s nothing major really.  Always prided myself being ‘kalabaw’ (beast of burden which never gets sick). But I did experience diarrhea and the occasional urge to vomit every now and then.  I don’t know what caused it.  I doubt if it’s from something I ate because the family would have suffered the same fate as well. Well, I don’t know maybe I got sick by osmosis.  Being around sick people and reading about sickness in the blogs,  I just had to be sick myself.  Needless to say, it did affect my run yesterday.  Instead of doing the mandated 8 sets, I just did 6 of those dreaded 4 x 200m at 5 seconds slower than my regular pace 😦  Does not augur well for Subic, huh?  But then, I did read in loonyrunner’s blog about ‘Bad Runs’ where there are really no bad or good runs, it’s just our attitude that makes a run/race good or bad.  

I know it’s a big weekend for most of us out there.  To Baldrunner, SFRunner, Johnny and those running in the SF Marathon.  To those participating in the Milo Marathon.  To those doing 03, 01 and the relays in Subic,  I send my biggest and loudest cheers to you all.  I’m sure all of us will harken to loonyrunner’s advice and race a GOOD one this weekend.  

Now, excuse me while I go to the ‘john’ once again…….



  1. I have not been as posting as often as I don’t want to spread the virus [and make everyone feel bad as well] but now that I am feeling a little better, I can comment on your post. Take care and get well soon.

  2. hey man, get well soon… though sometimes, sickness could indeed be psychogenic in nature 😀 drink a lot of fluids!

  3. PC,

    Thanks PC, Hope you did well on your first marathon 🙂


    Thanks, I must admit, I had to get a dictionary to find the meaning of the word ‘psychogenic’ 🙂 Yup, must be in my mind nga lang. Thanks for visiting.
