In the peak of our training month, we are averaging anything between 55km-70km a week.
To achieve this target we run 3-4 days a week.
The short run is 10 km…….the medium one is 15k………and the long one is anything over 25k.
I have run from signal to signal for the longest time and suddenly last week I realize, now signals have lost meaning, as I look forward to the new landmarks I have created, which are a good 3-4km apart which cover 5-7 signals at least! Running past the familiar markers………I wonder how this has happened…..?
25 kilometers is now only a series of 6 roads….Marine Drive,Babulnath,Peddar road, Worli, Worli Seaface and Prabhadevi…it’s a short run!:)
I have broken up the distance into smaller (more doable) cutoffs…but these are 3-4 times the distance which I was doing for the past so many years. What used to be long is now short!
I learn …..Everything in life is relative…………..
What seems to be a huge task….is actually only a collection of a series of smaller milestones…….
Small and Big are really all perceptions of one’s mind! What seems unachievable at one point may seem easily reached at another.
A book I am reading by APJ Abdul Kalam:
Dreams transform into thoughts
and thoughts result into action.”
As a friend joked with me……parul, she said, soon you’ll be talking about doing ultra marathons!…you’re crazy, I replied!
I’m going to leave it at that.:) !
