Off to the Clinic

Thursday, 24 September 2009  |  Bullish Insights


I caught a nasty bug last night that’s draining all the energy out of me. The throat is scratchy and I’m sneezing every 15 seconds.

Earlier this morning, I tried my best to proceed with work: finalize TBR Magazine – October issue, and thankfully, I did. (Wait for my post about it!) But, there are still meetings to attend, and shopping to do (for the Li’l Miss Bull Runner who turns 5 tomorrow!)

Plan is to finish all these and head to the clinic tonight. No, not a doctor’s clinic, but a running clinic! Hah!

For the past two weeks, I’ve been regularly attending the Nike Training Clinic at Ultra on Tuesdays and the Mizuno Run Club at Bonifacio High Street on Thursdays. I don’t join the training session as I have my own program to follow, but I think being around runners and coaches gives me the motivation to accomplish my job for the day. Of course, great conversation with running friends makes the experience less dull, too.

Methinks that an 11k tempo run at 5:40 pace tonight may just be the thing to scare the virus away. Now, if that doesn’t work, you’ll hear from me tomorrow—after I visit a real doctor’s clinic!
