Mentors transforming to bullies in running & in life

We need to go back to the simple question that needs to be answered for your own sake every week. Why do you run? If besides everything else, it is about joy of running and to connect with your deeper self, we are on the same page. But if it’s only about a better time, longer distance each time and yet another finisher’s medal, I feel sorry for you. Somewhere you have lost the plot.

Run to get out of the Rat Race

We often look to others for appreciation, which then defines our sense of self-worth, which creates an internal disconnect. Shifali Gupta, a 40 years old, mother of two, first discovered running, jumped in to the deep end of the rat race, but along the way, happened to discover her own self too.

If you want to Run as Fast as you can, Slow Down

Many gurus and experts will give you a discourse on running and life at drop of a hat; a similar pattern found on social media. These sources undermine your true potential and only bring passive understanding. Lessons learned from your daily experiences are your best teacher. Focus on those, and how they will serve us well in the future.

Running doesn’t cause knee arthritis, not running does

Running doesn’t cause knee arthritis, not running does

Contrary to what people think, it’s not running that causes the bad knee pains, but running with poor form. Unfortunately when you pick up running in 30s and beyond, you are trying too hard as you’ve forgotten how to move naturally, the way you did as a child.

There is no rocket science to it. You need to slow down and work on your strength training. Be patient as you’ve taken decades to master the art of moving inefficiently and unnaturally. It’ll all soon come together.

I have come up with a very simple exercise program that can be done by anyone, anywhere. It’ll take you less than 5 minutes to do it, but by the end of 2018, you would have become super fit, someone you’ll be proud to know.

Feet of Clay: What's your weak-link?

We all have our Achilles Heel, weakness in spite of overall strength, which can actually or potentially lead to our downfall. It is very important we recognise it and work on it. It is very easy to blind ourselves to our own weaknesses. Here is a story 633BC which you most probably haven't heard about and even if you have, have never related to it like this.
