Running Clinic Visits The ULTRA

It was a Sunday to remember when the Runnex Running Clinic went to the Utra Track Stadium in Pasig to do interval and other speed training workouts, this time concentrating on developing speed in running. Coach Jojo Macalintal continued the form drills, strength drills and other core exercises before concentrating on the improvement of our strengths, efficiency and speed.

The work-outs were fun yet challenging, tapping the potential of the runners on the specifics of speed and racing in the middle distances like the 5 and the 10ks. It was a fun experience for all oldies and newbies. After the run, the runners proceeded to Betty’s Valle Verde residence for a hearty breakfast. Thanks, Betty!

The Running Clinic is still open for beginners, intermediate and advance runners. Assembly is in front of Abelardo Hall, U.P. Campus, 5:30am-6:00am every Sunday. Just look for Mr. Rudy Fernandez.

Running Clinic is FREE!
