As I’m working in the graveyard shift (9:30PM-6:30AM), I’ve thought of revamping my training schedule as the previous schedule (training 8am-11am, post-shift) I have was draining too much energy from me and disrupting my holy sleeping moments.
New Sched (a subtle invite, “Come, train with me!”):
- S- Rest/LSD/Events
- M- Rest/Gym
- T- Swim, Triads
- W- Swim-Run
- Th- Run
- Sat- Rest/LSD/Events
Luckily, I have few sporty friends who live near and train in Marikina Sports Complex/ Center on a regular basis. I then decided to add ‘Wednesdays @ MSC’ in my weekly routine. MSC is an hour from my home and just 30mins away from my work. It’s as convenient as my usual training place- PhilSports Arena (Ultra) in Pasig.
What’s even amazing is that MSC is the only complex (to my knowledge, at least) which offers Night Swimming (6pm-9pm). Swim-Run training gets easier as the track is just outside the pool premises. Plus, entrance fees are cheaper here than that of Ultra.
- Pool– (Opens 8am-11:30am, 1:00pm-4:30pm and 6pm-9pm) Php60
- Track–Php10, but free if you already paid entrance to the pool
- Pool (Opens 8am-11:30am, 1:00pm-4:30pm)- Php60
- Track– Php35
Aside from the pool and track, MSC also houses other sports amenities- a gym, badminton/ table tennis/ basketball and volleyball courts to name a few.
Below is the list of other facilities available for public renting:
My new-found friend, Engr. Rosalie Nofies (@nopeimnot) aka MSC ambassador/ Mountain Bike Trail princess (and soon to be podiumer, char! pangarap ko lang for her haha), just bought her DSLR and used (use talaga? 😛) me as one of her practice subjects.
Check out her blog for the latest MSC schedule.
Thank you, Rosa (and Jai) for always warmly welcoming me in your area. 🙂
Looking forward to seeing you in MSC,
