Sunday Long Run: Sitio Tigbawan, Can-ayan, Malaybalay City

This is my second back-to-back long run on a weekend for this month as I prepare for my first ultramarathon race on February. Last Saturday (Jan. 17), I ran 5K at the SIC Family Fun Run then followed it up with 13K at the Capitol Grounds. On Sunday (Jan. 18), Edward and I went out for a long run, from our office building at LBP Malaybalay up to Sitio Tigbawan in Brngy. Can-ayan and back.

While I've ran several times along the Can-ayan barangay road, it was my first time to run up to Sitio Tigbawan. However, Last December 31, 2014 we did a year-end hike starting from GK Capitol Village, passing through the Two Trees Peak of the Provincial Tree Park descending to Sitio Tigbawan and finally walking up to Can-ayan barangay proper. The hike gave me an idea of what to expect in this route .

Sunday Long Run: NHA Casisang to Brngy. Imbayao (Malaybalay)

These are photos taken during our long run last Sunday, January 11, 2015. I was with my officemate Edward. We started our run at almost 6 AM right outside their home in NHA Phase 3 Annex, Casisang. Our route simply followed the road going to Barangay Imbayao and we agreed to turn around once we reached one hour. It is 95% uphill in going to Imbayao so we run-walk with a 4:1 ratio (4 minutes run; 1 minute walk).
