After the dreaded experience in Mayon 360 last April 6, 2013 (High BP due to heat and bicol express), I decided to lie-low and take that much needed rest till my next ultra. I'm still training though but with lower mileage and intensity compared to how I prepared for BDM 160. I'm also suffering from achilles tendinitis which I also got from the Mayon 50-miler run. This was my wake-up call to take some time-off and enjoy the off-season.
Honestly, it's boring. But it made me realize a lot of things. Life is not just running alone, there are a lot of things that you need to do (and I mean a LOT). This break also gave me the time I need to plan ahead for my life and see what else can I do. Running is my passion but right now, I need to find another hobby while waiting for my training season to start in June.
Folk dance maybe? :))
