Couch to 5K, at last!

What’s the best way to do your first 5K – running it with an amateur.  Ran almost till BEL circle and back. Too lazy to write the rest.


A 4K in continuum.

I don’t know why I ran today. I think it was most probably because my calves were not paining.

What I expect is seldom what happens. I had this idea of running to BEL Circle had been eating me since a couple of days. I never gave it a try, though. Started off with a normal pace and almost killed myself at one and a half kilometers. A small rest, and I was back again.

Nagaland Circle, and I knew that was it – no turning back. It’s a pretty cool track once you reach the main road. Ah, and I ran sans music thanks to yesterday’s discovery 😀

Half past six on my Nano by the time I reached there. Caught a Volvo and headed back home. Had to dump the idea of running back (it’s my longest run till date already)!

I make me proud 🙂

A dizzy Tuesday evening

It was forty-three minutes past six when I knotted my shoe lace. Today’s goal – two miles.

Running in the floodlights at NTI ground wasn’t as thrilling as I expected. A dull atmosphere augmented with my exhaustion made it pretty somber. Nevertheless, I managed not to walk till the end of my first kilometer. I wish I knew how much 2 miles would convert into kilometers.

Twelve rounds or so, and I was all dizzy (that might be a slight exaggeration). The last 4 hundred meters was wicked cool (sarcasm intended). Even figured out that keeping your music turned off is a very good way to concentrate on your run.

Well, a 3K at night isn’t always bad 😀

My longest adventure

It felt forever for today to arrive, and when it did, I was all geared up. It was half past five and I was up and stretching!

The Yosso 800 was where it all began, following which, I hit the streets and ran all the way to M S Palya. A decent 2.7K run. After a short break at Vamsi’s and a rejuvenating Jeffrey Archer short story, we hit the road again, and ended up doing a 3K at Sambram Roost – rough terrain.

It’s not very easy to keep going when your partner feels pretty exhausted and dehydrated (as he liked to put it). This one happened to my longest run, though the timing wasn’t that impressive.

Ten minutes of rest, and I was back on the way home (my calf didn’t seem to like the idea of walking back home). I’d say, that was quite a walk to end the workout with.

It’s 8 by the time I am home hugging mum and syncing my iPod!

Terrific day. Terrific run. Terrible speed.
