Back to my regular best...

Everything went as per plan today, managed to start early, which meant 7am, ran my 15kms in a little under 1hr 30mins and this was without much exhaustion (I was actually good for another 5kms). So should be able to do my half marathon next week. As I said earlier, it was just about getting used to the heat & humidity.

This week i did a 6km run on Wednesday and a 11km run on Friday. I need to step it up to 40km + every week, with at least 4 runs (including Sundays).

And yes I have almost completed my registration for the Great Tibetan marathon - July 21, 2007, including fees. Am trying to organise my travel tickets now, followed by some stay options (Lonely Planet should come handy for that, I can almost swear by it). I hope to go by train and road from Bombay to Leh (the Manali - Leh road trip is very important to get used to the altitude). On my return I hope to fly Leh to Delhi using Miles to save two days, only if the organisers decide to let go of some seats, they seem to have blocked full planeloads for now. Am sure that will happen as the dates get closer, just need to be patient.
