Andale! Andale!


The past 3 Sundays made me race the 5k distance, to work on speed in my quest for the 5 hour marathon finish in Milo come July.

My Galloway training plan allows me to build endurance and speed, with my weekend training plan calling for long run and/or speed work (through hill repeats, 5k races, and mile repeats).

The 1st one made me discover the endurance and speed I gained after a year of loving the sport. I improved by 2 minutes and 13 seconds.

The 2nd time was an affirmation of my discovery. I improved by 19 seconds, but ran the race in negative split and found it very tough to finish.

Learning from the 1st two experiences, I ran the 3rd time controlling my pace in the 1st half, and did a positive split and a strong finish, improving by 39 seconds.

April 4, ROLP Fiesta Run
28:45 minutes
5:51 | 5:27 | 5:57 | 6:11 | 5:54


April 11, Mizuno Infinity Run
28:26 minutes
5:31 | 5:32 | 6:21 | 6:21 | 4:32


April 18, Earth Run (Solar TV)
27:47 minutes [unofficial as of this writing]
5:25 | 5:38 | 5:52 | 5:38 | 5:39


Yep, my race pace is easy pace for a seasoned runner. But I'm not in a hurry. I'll get there, eventually, slowly but surely, and INJURY-FREE!

Hope my 5 hour marathon dream become a reality. Wish me luck!

Stick to your training plan and run as you've trained. You'll know at the later part of the marathon if you have plenty to finish, then make the move. Wish you the best.

bigla kong naisip... "unti-unting marararating, kalangitan at bituin..." hehe. I agree you'd get there and while you're doing it it's better to have fun and stay injury free (kita mo yung mga nag-adik sa BDM puro injured hahaha)... good luck on your quest speedy jetster!

given your progress, a 5-hour marathon would be a walk/run in the park! :D
