Three months of training, mostly irregular towards the end. We are ready for our second 10k, actually the second annual Bangalore 10k. Last year I was about 8 kgs lighter. But we had an eight month sabbatical in between so we basically started again from scratch. So I am hoping that I at least match last year’s timing. The calf-pain in the first few kilometers still annoy me. And there is a good chance that we will be running in the rain this year. Also, my parents and brother would be there to watch us this year. 🙂
Overall, looks to be an interesting run!
As I watched my brother-in-law run the half-marathon on television, I realised I had no reason not to put my running shoes on. There were CEOs and housewives with less free time than me. There were disabled people who didn’t even have all the limbs that I was scared of injuring. What excuse could I possibly have not to run?
Just saw a friend tweet about the TCS World 10k course route having been announced. Had some trouble finding a link to the course from the website homepage. Here are the routes for all the race categories of the event. I have shown the open 10k route up there.

Due to some unexpected changes to our schedule this weekend, we just weren’t in shape in the morning for the Sunday run. This week Runners High scheduled a 10k on the regular World 10k race route on Cubbon road, and I am pretty bummed about missing this. 😦
We have a 12k run scheduled for next weekend in our neighborhood itself. Have never run this distance before. I really really hope things fall in place for us to make it.
