4 sessions in Kodaikanal and an almost 10k in Chennai

Did a near 10k this morning. Dimensions to Marina and back. Looks like the running in Kodaikanal helped. My knee didn't give any trouble though it still feels like there is a lump in there somewhere. Hopefully it's just a tight quad and it will pass with some more running.

Getting some new music. So am hoping the running will continue!

Till next time.

Running at Anna University

Did a hard conditioning work out yesterday.

2miles in 18 mins warm up
20mins running ABCs/sprint drills
3x10m start
3x20m drive
3x50m start+drive+accelerate

The third rep of the 50m killed me.

Ended with a slow 1200m jog and light stretching

Today was a long run day. Did 20 laps (8 km) very slow - 1 hour with 1 lap walk for every 2 jogged after the first 12.

Need to write out a plan now though to sustain.

Until next time!

Good music + Focus = 4 miles

4 miles at sub 10mins per mile. Managed to run 16 laps at Anna University in 39 mins. Last mile was a bummer - got a twinge running up on the left side of lower back on the 15th lap.

Went in at 6 AM. Had to be up at 0345 to make it that early. But it was quite a good change. Next step is to get a good pair of shoes and a Garmin.

Back holding up.

Until next time.
