Hey since I got back from Cebu, I have been pretty busy here in CdeO with training, the kids of the Batang Sports Institute and Joyette who came for a visit!
Somedays I start with a run to avoid the heat.
Other days I run off the bike in the heat.
But I rarely get the best of both worlds…
Joyette escaped the Thilla in Manila to visit me for the weekend!
Everyday we went to ride in the mountainous province of Bukidnon, birth place of Manny Pacquiao! There tones of lush and green forest! She’s getting ready for the Tour Of Matabukay, so she was keened to ride somewhere else than the Mall of Asia or indoor trainer!
In the evenings, I take care of the kids of the Batang Sports Institute and make sure they work hard and train simple!
Because the kids are all in school still, they can only start training at 5pm. And because the Philippines doesn’t do daylight savings and its the rainny season. We are left to improvise some strenght sessions in between runs and swims.
Here, the kids favorite
The wall sits!
As test of will and pain tolerance!
Anyway, now Joyette is gone back to Manila and I am here for one more week, to keep pushing the training and leave a lasting impression on the kids!
Special thanx to Coy Fuentes and Armand Ansaldo for the great shots!
