Packing up my things here in the boarding house. I've been staying here for about ten months already, but I've only been able to maintain just a little bit of order and cleanliness. Just like my old room in Cagayan de Oro.

Most of the stuff I'll be bringing along for the trip back home are clothes. The trusty duffel bag will hold the heavy crap, mainly the huge-ass books and bulky electronics. Hopefully none of the bag straps will break during the bus ride. Dragging along four heavy bags will be a huge pain.

I'll have to return some of the stuff I borrowed for the past school year; a lot of extra clothes, the bike I've been using, bags, kitchen utensils, and cleaning materials. If we plan things right, one trip to Osias/Katidtuan will suffice. It's a good thing no items were bolted to the walls or the floor.

Last department meeting tomorrow at 8:00am. Election of new department chairperson, among other things.
I have to get up early to finish the preliminary deliveries.

C25K Update

I wasn't able to finish the Couch to 5k Week 4 - Day 1 workout. I had to stop by the first five minute run because I felt a stabbing-twisting sensation around the lower right area of my torso. I didn't push myself today, Since I might have been seriously injured. If I won't be able to complete the required/recommended intervals this week, I'll stay with W4 for another week.

Thankfully, the pain didn't last long.

Mental prep for tomorrow's TFFC Workout.

Cardio Week

Although I was planning on doing a dedicated cardio week if certain goals were not met by the end of March, I had to reconsider because of how busy I would be by then. I'd have to move my things out of the boarding house, have my clearance signed, submit grades for the second semester, and pack up stuff for the trip home.

Seeing as to how relatively empty my schedule is this week, a one-week cardio program won't be able to get in the way of work.

The program schedule:

TFFC/TFFFC = TacFit Firefighter Challenge
GF                = General Flexibility (Stretching/Yoga)
C25K            = Couch to 5k (Week 4)
JJacks          = Jumping Jacks (100x3)
MA               = Martial Arts

This workout is far from perfect, but hopefully it's more than enough to prep the system for the summer vacation training.

I know how to swim, but I am far from being a good swimmer. I hope I get extra time during summer vacation to improve my form. It's a good thing I started to jog again, since now I can hold my breath longer when underwater.
