I’ve been to Quezon City Memorial Circle (QCMC) for several times but not to jog and much more, not on a Monday! Three of my church mates and I went to QCMC this morning to jog. Only one of us has a car so we volunteered her to pick us up :D. I set the alarm of my cellphone at 4:45 A.M. to make sure that I am already prepared before she pick me up. Unfortunately, my cellphone’s battery got drained and the alarm didn’t go off. When they knocked on our door, that was the only time I started dressing up! I didn’t bother to take a bath. I just brushed my teeth, washed my face and change my clothes! Whoa! The fastest preparation I ever made 😀
We arrived at QCMC passed 6:00 A.M. We started with minor stretching for warm up and to avoid muscle pain after the jog. But I guess the warm up is not enough or we didn’t do it properly because my legs are aching waaaahhh! We only had three rounds and I am already tired and my legs were already aching specially near the ankle. I think I need a real running shoes. My rubber shoes is not appropriate for this activity. After three rounds, we already stopped jogging and just did some more stretching . And because we know only few stretching, we looked for someone to imitate! And we are blessed because few feet away, there is a Manong doing some stretching too! Without him knowing it, we imitated his movements and when he accidentally looked us, we just pretend that we were not looking at him :D.
We finally left QCMC at 7:30. We bought lugaw (congee) with egg near our place and just brought it to our house for our breakfast. I was too tired that I already felt sleepy :D. I just had a bowl of lugaw before I took a bath before I headed to office.
We agreed that we will jog again tomorrow. I don’t know if I can make it because my legs are still aching. And by the way (btw), the purpose of the jog is for me to lose some weight! My friends are very concern on my weight. They are slim but they still jog to accompany and encourage me to sweat the fats in me 😀 They are doing the sacrifices for me 😀 hahaha… I have a set of good friends, isn’t???
