Goa River Marathon Dec 19, 2010

Its been a really long time since I last posted. I guess blogging is dying a slow death and micro blogging has completely taken over (atleast for me).

Been through two rounds of malaria over the last 2-3 months and now some ligament/tissue damage near the knee. Have had lotsa starts, 3-4runs a week with 40km odd weekly mileage but have been trying to ramp up too quickly post my malaria episodes, and I have a feeling the injury is due to this quick ramp up. Will be taking the next few weeks easy with short runs, so that I am fit for my Goa marathon.

I have a long 15day holiday down south before the Goa marathon, so it will give me a lot of time to train and get back in shape for the Dec 19 half marathon.

Hi Girish,
Nice to see your blog after a while. It would be worth checking out Dailymile.com for folks like us who are interested in endurance activities. You could search for my name - Neeraj Pardikar and add me as a friend. All the best for your Goa Half.

Hey! Came by to check if you blogged about the Goa River Marathon. Hope the malaria is now a distant memory. Good luck for the Mumbai Marathon in January.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and splendid 2011, and the very best always.

Thanks Neeraj. Had a great Goa run, awesome weather and race.
I want to use dailymile, but only wish it could be updated automatically through sporty pal (app I use for logging my runs). Am extremely lazy, so adding things separately to Dailymile is a bit of an effort.
Wishing you the very best for your runs. Hope you are participating in the Bombay marathon.
