  • “No dream is too big, no dreamer too small” 
Have I ever mentioned that I absolutely love animated movies? Wild imagination and random possibilities, these movies make me dream and believe in them so much more. 
So here’s a movie recommendation: Turbo, the story of a speed obsessed snail and his adventures. (The quote above is from the same movie) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • 👉🏼 Rome was not built in a day, nor was it built in a month.

🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸
.
Finished my third 42K run of 2019 on 11th Jan. So 3 marathon runs in 11 days. Not bad.
.
I had promised earlier that I will share two secrets of building rock-solid endurance. One, a relatively well known pearl; the other, the secret of Olympians. Here is the first part.
.
Overload your body gradually, not abruptly.
.
42 km is just 2 km more than 40 km, which is just 2 km more than 38 km. You get the point.
.
Never push your body beyond 10% more than your current ability. Your bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and fascia adjust to gradual overload, through a process called remodelling.
.
Stress them a bit and they get rebuilt stronger. Stress them a lot and they simply break down.
.
To build marathon fitness is to build leg strength (endurance), heart strength (aerobic) and lung strength (anaerobic). Know your current limits of these three.
.
In any given run, push only one of these three boundaries and that too by less than 10%.
.
For a newbie, endurance building is enough. Go long, and slow, 2 km more than your previous recent long run. Then, 2 more km after a week. And so on.
.
Given enough time and inclination, anyone can build Rome. And run a marathon. Good luck.

  • It's not about perfect,
It's about effort.

  • Oh I sure as hell remember this time while I was racing. It was my 2nd official half marathon. My first one was 7 days before. I have to admit that I really learnt a lot after this race especially the importance of eating and resting a day before the race day. I walked  a lot on the bib expo day and managed just 1 hour sleep before the race(got caught up with the pressure of performing my best). I was exhausted but still somehow I kept myself mentally strong. #noexcuses  My body was finished(really finished!!!! I mean it when I say it) around 19km. At that point I thought, believe me when I say this," let's just stop and lay down on the side. I can't go more. Let the ambulance come and get me." But I don't know, one part of me just did not wanted me to stop and I didn't stop(thank god!). When this photo was taken,they were the last 400m and only I knew what was going inside of me. I was breathing with almost 50% of my capacity  as a  full breath was causing  stomach pain. As soon as I saw the finish line, I started to sprint with all I had. Even I was shocked at this. I think it was the adrenaline ( the last few ml. Haha! ) inside of me  that started flowing after the finish line  was in my sight.  Finished the race and the stomach pain was so much that the body took 20 mins to come to a normal state. 
I was pretty disappointed but soon after I realised that I was going too harsh on myself. 
Left the race area( after having my share of refreshments and a lot of water) with a feeling of satisfaction ( not that much) but more of a feeling of performing even better in terms of quality. Not under pressure! 
The timing was 1:42:08 for my second half marathon on 21st April 2019.

1:36:15 for my first half marathon on 14th April 2019. So you can see why I was disappointed. 
Nonetheless, this is just the start. There is a lot more to come, perform and achieve. And I shall give it all that I have. 
Writing this at 3:50am. Feels like it happened last morning.

Over and out! -
