Feb 17 - 23 Update:

Jog/run 3 KM, 5 times / week Hit 3 KM in 30 minutes. I know its not great but that was my first milestone towards 10 K run.

Skipped Skipping

Squats & Push ups - 20 / day - 3 times/week

Feels lot better..

Seems to have lost a couple of KGs off in last month. But no one seems to notice or is it drop in a bucket ? Will keep at it though..

Thanks everyone for your updates and it keeps me motivated.

SDP, your updates in this thread keep me going. This post is a thanks in the absence of the thanks button. I'm trying to bring in some discipline and commitment myself, let's see how it goes.

SDP, I see two numbers for rides. Did you ride 40 kms on saturday and sunday and rest 60 on other 3 days? 20 kms per day is a good number. Do you do distance ride or time trial of specific time?

Did 42kms on Saturday. Did 45kms on Sunday. Did 10.5kms each on 3 more days.

I have a fixed route to cover for the daily ride. I don't really time myself. Hope that answers.

Surat had hosted a night marathon last Sunday and Pune-based member anandpadhye had driven down to Surat with his mum and uncle to take part in the half-marathon (21 km). I woke up to his PM on Sunday morn around 9 AM and since he was a vegetarian, we couldn’t invite him over for lunch (we were cooking some fish curry, fish fry and rice). So we decided to meet up for a high tea around 5:30 PM. Took a quick shower and we went to the hotel to meet him. We exchanged pleasantries, sat down over a cup of tea (I had 3 cups btw; I LOVE tea!) and started talking about various things.

Turns out, Anand has already taken part in quite a few half-marathon events organized at various locations in India and is a certified fitness freak! So much so, that he did not want to waste his energy using the left foot on the hard clutch with his manual tranny Tucson, he decided to get a hand-clutch installed (Related thread - My Hyundai Tucson: Hand-operated Clutch installed!). He runs (or jogs?) for 8 km every alternate day, eats a light meal every night (mostly restricting to soups), limits rice intake during lunch, eats plenty of fiber-rich food etc. were some of the things I recall him telling us.

The marathon began at 9:30 PM that night and he must have completed it with ease. for this senior BHP’ian! Way to go Sir. I couldn’t find a better thread to post this.

It was good to meet you Ganesh. Sorry couldn't benefit from your lunch invite :-(

It was a great run, nice cool breeze flowing, good route, good support. Finished the half marathon in 2:35. Now that I have done the half marathon a few times, I think I have adjusted to the distance, I should now focus on improving speed.

BTW, you did not have to bring it up on this forum. 9 kmph is no speed to talk about on team-bhp

Woah! Very nice. I think the winner from Kenya clocked some 2:20 IIRC from what I read from yesterday's TOI paper.

Of course I had to! It isn't everyday you get to meet a fitness junkie like you. Best of luck for your future runs.

Congratulations on half Marathon

You will be inspiration for someone who is trying to run 10 K this May in Bangaluru.

I hit 5 K this week in 45 minutes.

Ran 4 KM for 3 days, once 5 K and Saturday ran 6.5 KM in 65 mins.

Pains everywhere

Recovering hopefully will run my first 10 K and some time may be join you for half marathon sometime in future..

That would be an awesome journey..

Thanks @anand.
All the best for the 10K. Once you start running, it will soon develop into addiction, at least that's what happened to me :-)

BTW, in my first half marathon, I took 76 min for first 10K. In Surat I did the first 10 in 66. Trying to improve...

Yes, let's run together sometime, it's always fun to run together than alone.

Cheers!

Sorry SDP & Folks, I am using this thread to promote another thread...

I am running a fund raising event for a NGO/Charity that deals with Cerebral Palsy (CP) that ends on 31st March and by then we need to raise at a minimum $5000 from 40+ donors.
