This week ishneaky Monday run pushed the Pecs Regimen on Tuesday enjoying the Dips with an additional 20lbs exhausting the sternum area. Really feels good hitting the right spot in hope to gain the desired striation one day.

On the road, kicking off for another session this Wednesday afternoon in fear of a bad weather (Vinta) this coming weekend. Quite a determined pace earlier thinking that the usual Caloocan Route-1 is already at 32min mark last Sunday morning.

The euphoric run earlier stretched the lungs and finishing strong at 31min (observed short recovery period).

Order posted at Trinoma Branch 6 weeks ago appears to be in slumber.
Let's see what their Ortigas Head-Office can do to expedite the request.

Kung saan-saan ka kasi nakatingin eh.
Now, please define "splinter."
:rofl:


Seriously, there are lots of choices for a mere Running Shields may it be PhotoChromic, Polarized, UV Filters, etc. However, I need something that can be fitted either by Reading and Distant Lens (sorry not fond of Progressive Lens). Producing the Prescription Lens given the curvature of the originals is another pain in the a$$. This is the usual predicament that drives even the best Optical Shop in the country crazy.
:violent1:

It was only thru the concept of "Inserts" that addressed above requirements for:
- unadulterated Protection Shields
- custom grinded plain Prescription Lens on separate Frame
- easily detachable for various configs
- and best of all. X-Ray Vision (JOKE!!!... asa ka pa?)  ;D

Head Office response:
"Unfortunately sir, the model is not yet available here in the Philippines."

Ngek, kaya nga pina-outsource sa labas dahil sila ang Direct Importer. Ayan ha, matino ang channeling para sa tamang buwis at para maisabay sa shipment. However, it appears:
- a lame/ lazy excuse
- forcing the Customer to buy what is available in local (sleeping) stock
- to oblige the Customer to pay their obsolete (high) retail value despite of broadcasted global discounts (AU was already slicing it half of its Original SRP).
:violent1:


Ok... let's go for alternate means. ;D

To which I already did.  ;D


It turns out that:
- the model I wanted was cheaper in Taipei.  8)
- but the RX Inserts are tagged 30% of the Frame (and I need 2-Inserts)  :o
- adding a Blue Chromatic Kit for variations
- and BEST of all, 20% Courtesy Discount on ALL purchases (which they usually do to lock the transaction)
:banana:

To make the story short, it was a DEAL and we'll just have to wait once they are back in Manila for these coming weeks.
Extra trip was planned for this weekend to locally secure the extra Clear Shield at Podium branch.



In the meantime, got to hit the road this afternoon.

Have to wait a little to make it easy in the pocket.

Once bagging Runner's World Editors Choice, now in the arsenal awaiting its debut run.
Pronation Correction yields 7degrees closing into almost 180 degrees linearity.  8)
