Mahabaleshwar trip

I had a very pleasant long extended weekend trip to Mahabaleshwar (its a hill station which is about 6 hours drive from Mumbai). I did manage to run on all four mornings that I was there, and trust me this was very tough. The weather was just perfect, clear Sky on most days with bright sunlight, but optimum temperature of around 20degree Celsius and moderate humidity, which made getting up in the morning extremely difficult. But, at the same time it was also the ideal weather for running.

Another special feature was the terrain, Mahabaleshwar is on top of a hill (its actually one of the highest and largest hill stations in the state of Maharashtra & its also the most beautiful), So i had good run climbing a slope of about 1.5kms or so around the Venna lake. On the first two days I ran about 5kms each and on the next two days I did the 1.5km slope twice, about 6kms each.

I followed it up with a run today (late evening) with a 6km run. And I hope to do my last run on Friday morning. Am looking forward to my Sunday Delhi Half marathon, my preparation is nowhere close to adequate but I hope to do a time of under 2hours. And if I am lucky I will break my previous personal best of 1hr 58 odd minutes.
