Week 7 Was Great

Week 7 of ultra marathon training was great. I could hit almost all the number of kilometres this week. Here’s a brief recap. Monday I couldn’t wake up in the morning because the previous day we were out till late for shopping. And also due to the current heat wave, it causes a sort of fatigue which inhibits the ability to wake up early. Early for me is 4 or 4:30 AM because if it is later than this time then it gets too...

What Does An Easy Day Look Like?

What does an easy day look like? It should be easy, duh! If you are a runner, then chances are that you had been told by very many learned people that have easy days in your training or easy days are an important component of training regime.

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 used to be a whisky drinker some years before I dove into long distance running. The time I was training for my first 100 km race, somehow, organically I will say, became a beer drinker. I don’t know why! And it was not because of what generally ultrarunners drink! I was attracted to it like a fly...
