Teleport Me Back to Australia!

If there is one place I want to go right now, it’s Australia, the land down under. I was blessed to be given the opportunity to travel to this country last March of this year. I was hubby’s +1 on his race at the Ironman Melbourne.

I instantly fell in love with Australia. Who wouldn’t? The country is really beautiful. Sharing with you some pictures from my travel. :)

Been dreaming of going back to this country, but since it takes a lot of money to travel to Australia, will just settle on dreaming for now. ;)

Trail Love: Salomon Citytrail Manila

After long hiatus of not joining races, last Sunday, September 7, I got to run at the first Salomon Citytrail Manila held inside the famous walled city, Intramuros.

salomon

This is my comeback race after a long hibernation. And I stopped running because of health reason. But with prayers and a God-given doctor, I ‘am well now. (Will try to post about this soon)

What can I say about the race? It’s a breath of fresh air. I love the race route, memories came flashing back to me when I was still in college during the first time I visited Intramuros. With just hundreds of runners who joined, participants get to enjoyed what Intramuros has to offer. Some run leisurely and took pictures while doing so. And competitive runners paved the stairs and uphill flat and finished strong. The race is a green race, and happened during sun down.

One other thing I enjoyed is running with my Salomon Citytrail shoes. With its cushion I was able to run smoothly on the cobblestone road of Intramuros.

SUUNTO Ambit 2R: The GPS Watch for Runners

The much awaited unveiling of SUUNTO’s new baby happened last May 8, 2014 at 100 Miles Cafe, Bonifacio Global City. Runners, bikers, triathletes and bloggers came together in excitement for the new GPS watch from SUUNTO.

Suunto’s popular Ambit GPS watch family grows in March with the launch of the Ambit2 R, the GPS watch for runners.

 The Suunto Ambit2 R is optimized for your perfect running experience. It provides responsive and reliable speed and distance readings thanks to FusedSpeed™, a unique combination of GPS and accelerometer data from your wrist. Suunto Ambit2 R also measures running cadence from your wrist.

Suunto Ambit2 R can also help you reach your performance goals. You can plan your own moves, or download complete training programs from Movescount.com. The watch reminds you of daily targets, tracks target completion, and provides speed and intensity guidance while you run.

Additionally, Track-back and full navigation offer the freedom to explore new trails without getting lost. Download routes from Movescount.com or simply select Track-back at any point during a run. Suunto Ambit2 R will show you the way.

Suunto Ambit2 R is available in black or white, with the white sporting a soft silicone strap for an improved fit for women. Both can be purchased with or without a Suunto heart rate belt.

With Suunto Apps, even more running features become available. Personalize your Suunto Ambit2 R with running Apps of your own, or choose from the thousands of free Apps in the App Zone on Movescount.com. They include:

  • Interval coach: Let the coach determine when you should run easy and hard! This App is for endurance intervals. Select your pace level and the coach will give you target paces to run.
  • Ghost runner: Challenge yourself against a competitor. A positive distance means that you’re ahead while a negative one means you need to pick up the pace.
  • Running efficiency: This App helps you improve your running efficiency by recording the number of heart beats over a kilometer / mile.
  • High intensity intervals: This App gives a short but sharp interval work out. Start with a warm up, run 15 x 200m with 30sec recovery and end with a cool down.
  • Marathon time: It uses your current speed to give an estimate of your finish time during a marathon, so you can see if you’re on track for that target time.

Movescount.com, the online sports diary from Suunto, makes it easy to analyze every aspect of your training and share your experiences with others.

Suunto has been designing and manufacturing gear for adventurers, explorers and divers for over 75 years. Built into every product is a level of robustness and durability beyond the ordinary — and the Ambit2 R is no exception. Waterproof to 50 meters and with a 12-hour battery life in GPS mode, you can rely on Suunto Ambit2 R, whatever the conditions.
