Week 5 Didn’t Go Great

Did you watch the attempt to break the 2 hour barrier by Nike? They failed to do so but achieved an amazing feat nevertheless. Read : Nike’s Sub 2 Hour Shoe – Reality or Fake? Anyways week 5 of training didn’t go great. But I still had fun. This was the first week of Base 2 phase or the 5th week of training. In this phase I introduced hill running.

Beer And Ultramarathon

  I love beer! And I love running! Almost any ultrarunner will say this. Ultra marathon is someway synonymous to beer, right?

I don’t know why! And it was not because of what generally ultrarunners drink! I was attracted to it like a fly...

One Week Of Being Vegan – Week 4

4 weeks of training for this year’s ultramarathon is over. One month done and five more to go! Yeah, it’s awesome. I am nearer to my goal race and I am so pumped! The time flies so quickly. I am sure that after the race, it will feel like it was yesterday when I was making all the plans and writing training week updates. So it’s been a week that I have converted to being a vegan. That means I have cut out meat, dairy...

It’s Different This Time – Week 2

It’s different this week is the title of the video I made for this week’s training for this year’s ultramarathon. Hence the title for this post too. And it is not SEO friendly! But let it be. The video of this week is a musical one and you may enjoy it. Anyways, about this week’s ultramarathon training. A low mileage week. If you see the week’s workout, the longest run is of 10 km. It is the Base 1 phase...

During initial phases of my blogging, I wrote poorly worded and structured...
