one run this week...

I managed only one run during the week, it was on Tuesday, i did a 11km run in about 1hr 8mins. It was one of my better runs and the best time I have had for sometime.

Was planning another weekday run but skipped it as my legs are still not ready for three 10+km runs a week, so will need to be patient about it. But am feeling ready and good about my Sunday morning run.

I have been doing a bit of thinking about my schedule for the next couple of years. I hope to do the following - Bangalore Ultra in Nov 08, Bombay marathon in Jan 09, an olympic triathlon sometime in the first half of 2009 (it will have to be some place in south east asia, need to find/discover that). This should get me ready for a MDS in March 2010 and an Ironman Triathlon in the same year.

I will be shifting from Bangalore to Mumbai in next two three months. Wanted to check the runing scene in Mumbai. Any suggestions.

Hi Amit, to be frank there is no running scene in Bombay. There are some stray runners here and there, but no running clubs like Runners for life.

Some interesting places to run are Priya darshani park, Joggers park, Shivaji park, Colaba woods, BPT park, carter road, Marine drive, race course, Araey milk colony...
