Defying Gravity


It's time to try defying gravity.  I think I'll try defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye I'm defying gravity.  And you won't bring me down

Exactly what I felt when I tried the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill. When a good friend, Jeff, gave me a rundown of the treadmill I knew that I was in for a unique experience. I did look it up and saw why such device was made in the first place. Even knowing what it is, I still had no idea what to expect. There are just some things that you got to try out to get a better understanding.

They've asked me to don a tight neoprene shorts, it actually looked like a Tutu, which zips unto the treadmill’s air chamber that envelops your entire lower body. The machine first measures your body weight. Edman (clinic supervisor) chose 50% of my body weight that I will train at. The air chamber inflates around your lower body to achieve the desired pressure. Edman then increased the pace and he stopped at 8 minutes per mile.

I will be honest. I have not run at this pace for almost a year. I was ready to scream before I run out of air. Surprisingly I was able to sustain it. I would've been able to pull a PR if I had more time on the machine. Seriously. Much of the work was handled by the treadmill. I was running on a lighter load thus my knees and ankles had little pressure on them. Still on 50% of my weight, I was given a taste of 5 minutes per mile. Seriously quick. Took me about 10 seconds, maybe less, before I called it quits.


Now here comes the million dollar question(s). Is it worth your time? The benefits are unquestionable. You will be able to train with minimal pain, exercise more with reduced stress on joints and muscles, and recover effectively. Is it economical? It will set you back $30 for a 15-minute session with the AlterG. Yep, thirty bucks for fifteen. Let's get real here for a second, I wouldn't part my hard-earned money just to have a quarter of an hour on the treadmill. If it is an hour (or more), I just might book myself up for 10 sessions.

It makes a lot of sense if you are undergoing rehabilitation or recovering from a serious injury. It is a medical device after all. You will definitely need this if you are a competitive athlete backed with sponsors, or have deep pockets, that will give you access to this piece of technology. For a regular Joe, like you and me, who loves running as a form of recreation - this is something that you would want to put in the low end of your priority list. Do not let me take away the fun of experiencing AlterG. If you got the extra dough, visit their clinic and look for Edmar.

Rogin-E: Battle Gear for Success

Getting to the top requires a lot from you. Staying there demands even more. Balancing both work and your personal life, while keeping an active healthy lifestyle, can take a toll on both mind and body, even more as you age. This is why it is important to be equipped with all the right weapons.

What do you need to stay on top of your game?

Physical Endurance
Ace your work and personal life by having the capacity to give one hundred and ten percent to all your activities. Greater physical endurance enables you to stay energized when tackling multiple roles and responsibilities at work and at home. Take a multivitamin that contains Korean Panax Ginseng that enhances physical performance and improves endurance.

Mental Power
Crunch time? Prepare your mind by channeling positive energy and getting enough sleep. To optimize your mind’s maximum potential through long work hours, take a multivitamin with Deanol for improved concentration plus increased mental agility.

Vitality of spirit
When things don’t go your way, stay resilient, stay on course. Continue to work and believe in yourself. Keep the fire in you burning and sustain your success by staying positive and surrounding yourself with positive thinkers. Royal Jelly’s antioxidant properties can also give you youthful vitality so you can live life to the fullest.

Balance of work and play
To avoid burnout, be sure to make time for other interests and passions like golf, biking, or photography. Spend time with your family and loved ones to create moments that you can remember whenever life gets tough.

On February 18, Bayer Philippines held the Rogin-E ManCon 2017, at the Metro Walk Tent in Pasig—a whole-day event especially designed for men who want to stay on top of their game. Attendees were encouraged to try out activities that showcased different interests and passions. Think cars and motorbikes for those who love speed and mobility; sports activities for those who want to stretch the limits of their physical strength and power; fashion and grooming for those who have an eye for fashion; and a selection of toys and hobbies to engage a man’s mind and body.

Developed by Bayer, Rogin-E is a multivitamin especially formulated for men who want to be on top of their game, at work and at home. It contains Korean Panax Ginseng that enhances physical and mental endurance; Deanol for mental potency, improved concentration and mental agility; and Royal Jelly for youthful vitality.

7-Eleven Skyway Marathon Review

Run 2017 promises to be bigger and more exciting, featuring the same categories as last year’s race. Just like last year, Skyway and Filinvest City will be an event venue partner for the 42KM, 21KM, 10KM, 16KM, 10KM, 10KM Buddy, 5KM, 3KM and 500 Meter (Kids run)
A lazy race review of the recently concluded 7-Eleven Skyway Marathon.

Excellent points..
Registration Fee. A tad cheaper than Condura Marathon. A full marathon will set you back at $31 versus Condura's $41.
Registration Sites. Pretty convenient. Reserve a spot using their website and pay on any 7-11 branch near you.
Hydration Station. Good job in this area. Plenty of water and sports drink along the course. Pineapple juice was available as well.
Portalet. Plenty! Couldn't ask for more. If there's only one gripe, it will be the missing portalets after the 15km mark
Loot. Some would call it swag. You'd be bringing home a box full of goodies if you have the patience lining up in the finisher's village.

Opportunities.
Race Route. It was supposedly a carbon copy of Condura's but changed at the last minute without prior notice.
Banana Station. I would've wanted more of this. Running on empty for several hours isn't a good sign. Bananas are cheap! Get more!
Last 2KM Mark. The person who placed that marker should be killed by the firing squad. It was FOUR kiometers away from the finish line.
Finishers Medal. Cheap material. Rather small. I guess you get what you pay for. Love love love Condura's medal.
Finisher's Shirt. So many things going on. Less is more. Just say "XXkm Finisher" at the back should suffice
Finish Line Experience. I was expecting a medal will be handed over at the finish line. Neville should know better.
Photographers. Very few of them. As of this writing, no picture of me was found.
Race Results. Can be found here. In a digital world that we live in, not even a partial list is available after 2 days.

My thoughts.
The full marathon crowd was rather thin. Unusually thin. Considering it is a rare opportunity for any athlete to be able to run the stretch of the skyway. I was expecting around two thousand participants. Never happened. Dunno why. Perhaps some folks forgot that the other (skyway) marathon ain't happening this year. Nonetheless, it is not a mediocre event. Unlike what PatCon insinuated in his facebook post. The Concepcion's had at least 8(?) years organizing their event. Comparing it with 7-Eleven would be unfair. Besides, they got RunRio. Believe me when I say I know what a mediocre race looks like. I have been with so many that I lost count. Bottom line, I will run it again next year.

Announcement: Legion Run Philippines

Hi!

It is with a heavy heart that we wish to inform you that Legion Run Philippines is CANCELED.

The success of Legion Run relies heavily on the obstacles that have been civil engineered, blueprinted and built by licensed contractors. Unfortunately, these need to be shipped from Bulgaria. We have bumped into a shipping problem and determined that it would be impossible to have the container vans arrive in time for the March 4 event in Greenfield City.

We are saddened that Legion Run won’t push through, but we hope you’ll support us when we’ve sorted things out and hopefully be able to return at a future time.
