Proud Parent

People normally are proud of their kids once they get 99 % etc or get into some top University. Children are normally treated by parents like trophies. I’m proud of mine for being themselves even if it means going against what is thrown at them like Asthma, bullying etc. Viren (11yrs) came third in inter-school athletics Meet in 1,500 metres clocking in at 6min 11seconds. Harsheath (16yrs) just ran his third half marathon in approximately 2hrs 10min. A lot more than I had done by those ages.

Air Pollution and running

The running season is on but air quality in Delhi NCR is being said to be 'very unhealthy' to exert outdoors. Should you be exercising and running out doors? What about all those masks people are running around in?

Letting Go

Letting Go

The 'thing' I love (the most) is my tiddly-piddly Volkswagen GT. It gives me immense pleasure. It's just my kind of car. Today is the day I give it away. Not sell. It's in top shape. I want to let go because I 'love' it too much.

Barefoot running! Everyone is going on and on about it without understanding more about it. This will give you something to think about.

How to ease knee pain

How to ease knee pain

In most cases, knee pain is attributed to osteoarthritis (wear and tear of the cartilage). That is an effect. Muscle imbalance, further leading to poor posture and poor gait is the cause. Unfortunately, most don't understand that we are more than just a skeleton. It's muscles, tendon and ligaments that not only keep the skeleton together, but moves it too.

Female of the species...

The female of the species is more robust than the male. 

Ever heard of male pain vs female pain? Male pain refers to people moaning and groaning over minor discomforts, non-issues. Female pain refers to real pain

Running: Losing My Religion

I've firmly believed that running gives you an even playing ground, which strips all of their social status and financial standing. It brings to surface the true character of the individual. It's because of that it's given me the best of friends and introduced me to some awesome folks out there.

4 hr full & 2 hr half marathon plan: week 21

This is week 21 of a 4hr full and 2hr half marathon plan. No, it's not supposed to be easy. I'll push you hard to get to your time but remember that you aren't a product of an assembly line and you aren't in a rat race. At the end of the day if you aren't smiling and miling at the same time, you are missing out on something big.
