April Schedule Fail/ May Goals 2018

Hi!

In this post I was expecting to write how wonderful my schedule for this month of April 2018 works. But this is not the case.

I’m not going to make excuses this just simple was a little bit hard to follow.

Having an intensive 3 hour of volleyball game every Monday it can be very exhausting. But I love IT!!

During this month I plan to Run 2 time per week yep that didn’t happen I ran like 2 times during all month and the longest distance was 0.65mi.

Tennis Friday I just went 2 Friday of the month.

The at home workout didn’t happen it was like another rest day.

 

Why the schedule was a fail, or wasn’t what I expected.

I tought that with running I was in good shape to play volleyball. Not…! So I have been searching practicing a lot at home. Is good, but I’m not that 21-year-old back in 2008. That means that I’m focusing more in volleyball than other thing. But I still working out, is not the same but still a work out. If you now much or a little about volleyball, you need to do a lot in the court, bumping, setting, serve, dig, spike etc… plus the people who I’m playing are Intermediate to Advance. So the rally on court can be sometimes very fast. Another thing and is very rare for me… I didn’t know the words in english to refer to any of the movement or steps to play. If you don’t know english is not my first language, is spanish. So at first it was weird to interact to people when in my mind everything was like, (“mia”  mine, “yo” me, “saca” service, “dentro” in, “fuera” out, “acomoda”  set/setting…etc..) I was like for real very confuse and not familiar for the type of game that you play on court when not spanish speaking person play. So Can you imagine! But It was easy for me to adjust that, just researching and been more familiar to that kind of word, dialect.

So my focus have been Volleyball for now. But I still want to RUN… My Goal is to mix this two and be comfortable doing so. I just need to organize everything better because on Fridays I’m playing tennis just 1hour. But still not Running related.

Tennis is for fun! Volleyball too but I’m taking more serious because it always been my passion since I was in elementary school. Running still important to me. Just need to see how I can combine everything and work.

For me It wasn’t a fail…It was a learning lesson. Is hard to compromise time when sometimes 24hrs are not even enough.

 

May 2018 Goal: 

  • Drink more water
  • Run more days during the month
  • Volleyball Monday
  • Tennis Friday
  • Be more patient

March Totals 18′

Hi!

This month my goal was running more miles. Be more active. Drink more water, eating less sweet which I did very good; and walk more.

Let’s see if I achieved this month wishlist.

Days Active all month: 20/31

Total of miles run: 15.40mi

Total of running days: 10

1 Volleyball day  3 hours.  Post about it (Check it out Click Here)

2 Tennis practice 45min each day. Post about it  (Check it out Click Here)

1 day bowling 2 games.

7 days of workout at home around 30min-1hr.

 

This month was very active, I like that. I felt very compromise with me to do it. I did my best.  Hoping this motivation continue. I’m not training for a race or anything in particular. I just doing it for myself. Something that make me feel very proud that I’m choosing to be a better version of myself. I love seeing results but if you want to see it you need to do something about it.

 

(03-30-2018) During today’s run I did my best during the first mile but today I put in mind I was going for 2 miles so when I finally did the first mile I was tired and a little bit in pain in my lower back so I didn’t continue with the run I just walk the next mile.

During this  run I learn that sometimes you need to take it easy. You might need to walk or crawl but never stop.  (unless is something serious you know.) You just go and never quit.

Volleyball / Tennis

Hi!

This is a random post!

It’s a little bit more about me, I was a Former Volleyball player in University 2008 in Puerto Rico. It have been 10 years since the last time I played volleyball and that was my last year in University 08′. If you know me well you know that I love volleyball. So I decided to check if around my community is there any place and can find to play. Then I found it, and it was so exciting to finally get the opportunity to play.

It was nice playing again and getting to know new people in the court. The body have memory,  Not the same stamina but for me after all this years it felt like I did a good work during the 3 hours I played. I going back on Monday. I’m going to get back at it. I feel like this is part of me. Is like passion. I love this sport.

Do you like volleyball?

TENNIS

I have been following the puertorican Monica Puig since she participated on Rio 16′  Olympics games and won the first gold medal for Puerto Rico, representing the island. She recently participated in the Miami Open 18′ unfortunately she didn’t pass to finals, but is completely fine she did her best performance during the tournament. So seeing her playing and watching all the games, It spark the curiosity on me to check how I can do it. So I try it for myself. I enjoy to play is very challenging, but since it was my first time. It went very well. I hope I can practice more frequently. I like it a lot!

Who is your favorite tennis player?

June 28,2013. Please Help Me with my new running shoes!!

Hi Everyone!

I’m in the hunt for new running shoes.

>>Please Comment down below with your favorite running shoes!!!!!!<<

I always used Nike, but this time I want to explore and trying something new. That may be change my performance and gave me a new experience when I’m out running.

My running shoes:

  • Nike Lunarglide 2: I used them for a few runs but now I only use them when I’m doing my workout at home or to going to a game.
  • Nike training Nike Free fit 2: My actual running shoes. I like this kind a sneakers because the fit on my feet are amazing. the only thing that worry me is that the sole is slim and when I run more than 2.00 miles my feet start to getting numb in the front part. I don’t know! If the slim sole that helps me to grab the pavement well, is affecting me for not having a good cushioning at the moment my feet impact the pavement.

What brand?

(Saucony, Mizuno, Asics (I already try them), Brooks, New Balance or Nike)
