Getting back to routine

After the Bengaluru Marathon on 17th Jan’2021, it has been hard two and half months, with lot of non-running things taking a lot of my time and little of running.

Running: Fighting Blisters and Puking to get 10k PB

“Running slow to run faster” this sounds such an oxymoron. Though one of the most common mistakes by amateur runners is they try to run too fast, too often. And often end up getting injured. For long distance running, endurance is a bigger factor than speed. This fact is important not just on the actualContinue reading “Running: Run slow to run Faster”

How I started running?

June 2018 After more than 10 failed attempts at quitting smoking, my fitness level was probably at its lowest ever.
