My previous marathons
I have run 4 marathons till date, 3 full marathons and one half marathon. Singapore marathon should be my fifth and the Mumbai marathon in January 2007 would be the sixth. My last three full marathons have been a little disappointing as its taken me well over 5hrs to complete all of them, though have been able to reduce my time with each successive run. I was reasonably confident of doing a time of well under 5hrs (actually closer to 4.5hrs) for the Jan 2006 Bombay marathon, but was unable to come close as did not have a good run that day and had not clocked sufficient weekly mileage during my preparation for it. But was optimistic about the time, as I had done a time of 1.58hrs in the half marathon at Delhi in Oct '05.
So this time around for the Singapore marathon I hope to ensure that I do a time of under 4hr,30mins. And hence the blog to motivate and keep me on track (by logging the right amount of Kms each week, in the coming months).
