While I generally get my items delivered in the US and someone brings it. Atleast in the running community here in Hyderabad, someone is always travelling to the US, however I know of people who have used international shipping. It costs about $20 for customs clearance and most of the time that gets refunded after about a month. well that's how it happened with a friend twice.

Is any T-BHPian planning to attend the Spice Coast Marathon in Kochi this November? Latest I heard is that the course is USATF certified and is a qualifying race for Boston.

I am not a marathoner, but I have a friend who is and I got this information from his FB page. I did not find any mention of this marathon in this thread, so I thought of sharing this information.

I knew the only Indian marathon that is a Boston Qualifier is SCMM. I understand the marathon needs to be AIMS certified.

But went to their website and saw that they are. Having said that, Boston Qualification criteria is kind of redundant and here is why

AgeGroup Men Women
18-34 3hrs 05min 00sec 3hrs 35min 00sec
35-39 3hrs 10min 00sec 3hrs 40min 00sec
40-44 3hrs 15min 00sec 3hrs 45min 00sec
45-49 3hrs 25min 00sec 3hrs 55min 00sec
50-54 3hrs 30min 00sec 4hrs 00min 00sec
55-59 3hrs 40min 00sec 4hrs 10min 00sec
60-64 3hrs 55min 00sec 4hrs 25min 00sec
65-69 4hrs 10min 00sec 4hrs 40min 00sec
70-74 4hrs 25min 00sec 4hrs 55min 00sec
75-79 4hrs 40min 00sec 5hrs 10min 00sec
80 and over 4hrs 55min 00sec 5hrs 25min 00sec

Having been running FM for quite sometime I can tell you that there are hardly very very few people (I think it will be arnd 1-2% ) in the recreational runner (non professional) category in India those who can run those times.

I am 32, weighing about 58-60kgs and about 5'9".

Since my nature of job is a 'desk-job', I am considering running/ jogging in the morning as a physical exercise. But I have read some people views that running can ruin one's knees and lead to joint problems in the older age due to pounding. Is it really so or are mostly urban legends? Also, does it wears the knee cartilage faster than normal?

Thanks.

@saket77: why complement that with some strength training to strengthen the knees then?

Sorry for the late reply Naresh. If you can suggest some knee strengthening exercise, it will be very helpful. If it helps, I have no history of any severe knee or bodily injury.
Also, I have started running sessions in the morning. I am currently doing about 3 kms with about 70% running and 30% walking. Since, these are the initial days, I am not straining myself much and I walk when I feel I am straining a bit too much. So, in my estimate, it is about 70-30 at the moment which I plan to better.

Thanks for your advice.
Regards,
Saket

There won't be problems so long as you don't overdo it and listen to your body. I run around 30 mins every day, and for most recreational runners like me the risks you mentioned are close to nil.

There may be some pain in your legs/knees /shins initially - take adequate rest if you feel pain.Your body will recover stronger. And enjoy your running - that's one of the most important aspects leading to dropouts.

Thanks for the sound advice. That is why I slow down and resort to walking everytime I have a feeling that I am exerting a bit too much. I am too running for about 30 minutes, early morning. Have been enjoying it so far and have a good feeling about it. Thanks again.

Default Triathlon

Hi Guys,

Didn't realise there was a running thread on Team-BHP. I am a running enthusiast myself run primarily on off-road trails (I find running on the road quite tough on my joints, I also love nature and being away from traffic).

Getting to the point, Himalayan Rush - http://www.himalayanrush.com/ is a nice triathlon in Nepal. It is very accessible as distances are manageable and the atmosphere is relaxed.

Get in touch with me if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

I have just started running a few months ago and increase the amount week on week. Any guidance on what is the apt amount to increase week on week. Are their any proven beginner marathon training plans ? I found a few on the net, not sure if these are any good though.
Any guidance will be appreciated

Google scooby's workshop running program.

He's a 56 year old heavy bodybuilder who started running late in life and has a nice 20 week program from no running to half marathon.
