Wow, amazing runs. My wife did half marathon at SCMM 2013 and inspired me into running. I had never run earlier. I started with Thane Marathon where I did a 5 km run and am gunning for half marathon at SCMM 2014. Currently, I'm practicing outdoors and do about 8.5 km in an hour (without water or any other refreshments). I do running and cycling alternately. My plan is to continue with outdoor runs/cycling till rains start. I will get into gym during rains to build stamina/muscles.

Half Marathon can be done every week. FM just takes a little more effort.
The whole point of running the Halfs was to replace the long runs with these. But the only problem is that I was unable to simulate the Full Marathon race day situations as I ended up racing in them. The last half had an average pace of 8.37 mins/mile. For the full I don't think I can run anywhere close to this. In fact I'm targeting a 9.45 pace. Lets see how it goes!

Registrations should start soon.

And the only tip for running Hyderabad Marathon is training hills!

Do hills, hills and some more hills

And this is the elevation profile http://www.marathonhyderabad.com/wp-...l-marathon.png

Default Runner's Knee

So I have been suffering from this annoying pain on my left knee for the past week which has now forced me to cut down my runs and I'm barely able to keep my leg bent for a day or two after the run. A little 'googling' told me that what I'm suffering from is Runner's Knee, which is quite common among runners.

I wanted to know if I should cut down on the distance or simply stop running for some time? I keep on increasing my distance every week and currently I'm running 7 kms every alternate day + 3km walk and the day's I don't run, I walk 10kms. My old running shoes gave away and I've been using training shoes for running which I suspect is the reason for my Runner's Knee. Usually the pain begins about 2-3kms into the run and it's tolerably enough that I can complete my run but since the past two days I've been having a hard time throughout the day after the run. I was thinking of getting a pattelar support band, something like this.

Also, can someone recommend good running shoes? Preferably below 3.5k.

Thanks!

I think you are right about the shoe being cause of knee pain.
I had similar problems when I changed my road running shoes. I used my Adidas Mana6 (Rs 5500 Sep 11) for over 1300 km when I switched to Adidas F50.2 (Rs 4500 Feb 13). That's when the pain started. So I ordered the trusted Mana6 online for Rs 3400 since it was no longer available in store. The knee pain disappeared almost immediately when I switched back to Mana6.
So its important to choose the right shoe for road. You need to get shoes designed for your pronation.

Don't go trail running with barefoot shoes :(
(see till the end)
Here's my Fila skeletoes - still doing good (some 50km done since then - half shopping, half walking) after the bruising they got while I barreled downhill in GHNP.

Any trail-specific shoes (except the Merrell Trail Glove 2) that BHPians recommend? Anyone here used the KSO Trek extensively?

One thing that annoys me incredibly much when running is the way my phone and wallet flop around in pocket. Seriously, incredibly disturbing.

I didn't want to get one of those sleeve things some people have on their arms and running without my phone and wallet was out of question.

Googled and the overwhelming majority of results seemed to say that buying an SPI belt was the way to go. Reading the reviews on amazon only further proved that *all* runners swear by it.

So last week I ordered one and upon receiving it today, I took it out for a test 6km run. Verdict? It is a must have. My phone and wallet stayed in place, there was no bouncing or flopping what so ever and the belt didn't move/slide around. Oh and you don't really feel like you're wearing a belt! The fact that it is discreet and compact is a bonus. All round win!

Hi Anekho. I face the same problem while running so I leave my wallet at home and keep few hundred bucks in my pocket with the phone in my hand.
And where did you order the SPI belt from? Is it available here in India online or in any store?

Hey midazolam! I ordered mine from the online sports store wiggle.co.uk and I think they ship to India as well! No hassles with them and I received my SPI belt within 4 days of ordering.

Thanks Anekho for the info.
Yes they do deliver it to India but after adding the delivery charges and all, it turns out to be close to 2500 bucks! So, it's better to get it delivered to someone in UK itself.

Available here: http://geb.ebay.in/g/ImportHubViewIt...tness-Pack-NEW for about Rs. 1800

Also check http://www.ebay.com/ (the US site, not the Indian one) for "running belt", there are many knock offs with free / cheap shipping to India.

Hey thanks man for all the help. Actually I ordered it to my friend's place in UK from wiggle itself. He will be coming to India next month.
And I ordered the water-proof one, would be of help during those rafting trips to rishikesh
