17.5KM Long Run and 80KM Long Bike





I had agreed to the invitation of my friends to do a long bike last Sunday. I wasn't signed up to any race event so I thought it was a great idea to have my bike experience its first long journey. The longest it has traveled was around 45KM in a single journey.

Prior to Sunday's long ride, I had to do a long run just to complete my weekly mileage. I thought the Saturday before the long ride was the perfect day. I logged around 17.5KM last Saturday.

I met up with my friends at Kalayaan corner C5. We passed by C5 heading toward Eastwood. We passed by Antipolo until we reached Morong and headed back passing by Cardona, Binangonan and Taytay. At Antipolo we had rice stew (yup lugaw). Going back at Binangonan we passed by a buko stall. I don't know if someone else would agree with me, but drinking buko juice seemed a lot refreshing than drinking a bottle of Gatorade.

After getting back to Manila, we passed by a little bit at Joy's place where we each had a glass of Herbalife shake. I couldn't believe burning 2000 calories could easily feel well replenished by a single 80 calories shake. But really, I felt so full and well nourished after the shake that after reaching home, I had no qualms on heading to Glorietta to accompany my wife shop.

It was my first 80KM ride and it was a fantastic experience that should have a regular slot in my training.

It is excellent when you enjoy fitness and healthy lifestyle! Healthy nutrition is also vital to provide you enough fuel for active recreation. I've discovered a good resource (militarygradenutritionals.com/blog) which contains plenty of useful information on healthy nutrition, diet and training plans for everyone who wants to stay fit.
