Sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy diet are the culprits of my weight gain, I feel so heavy and easily get tired. All I want is to be healthy and back on my track again. So when Ate My-my asked me if I want to join the MultiSport 101 Camp, I swiftly said Yes! Double yes, because it's a free registration too.
MultiSport 101 Camp is a training camp held at Bonifacio High Street with the help of country’s top coaches. Coach PJ Rivera, Michelle Estuar, Jay Valencia and Patrick Joson who shared their brilliant insights in running, swimming and biking.

06:30H - Before the official 5k run started, the whole participants were divided by two groups. The first group was headed by Coach Michelle, she demonstrated five warm ups and exercises that will strengthen the core and upgrade the speed. First is somewhat jumping forward/backward and sideward that your feet should be landed at the same time on the ground, second is planking, third is squat, fourth is sprinting and for the fifth is about balancing, all five done two minutes each. Meanwhile our group is headed by Coach PJ who delivered his thoughts about the technique, proper posture and the different phases and transition in running and a lot more that we could use in the actual run. They were given 30 minutes to attend the two groups and vice versa.

07:30H – The application of training session: The Actual Race. We were very lucky that Coach PJ joined us in the run and applied his earlier talk about the phasing in running. It was like the transition of your speed in the run, start with normal run for a minute, if you get tired you can walk for a minute, then run again for a minute and thirty seconds, walk then run fast for 2 minutes and so on. Actually this was my very first race, and I admit this is new to me; running in a group gave me so much pressure for I was on everybody’s back majority of the time, gasping air and calves getting stiff. There were time I just want to quit but my determination to finish my very first race prevailed.
08:00H - We run together in same phase, so finish the race much likely with the same time. After our run with coach PJ, he also shared his post drills and exercises to ease discomfort of pain and fatigue that may happened.
Overall, the experience was fun and I cant wait for Ate My-my next invite for the run. I just wanted to be fit and healthy again, and this will be the start of my new beginning.
