Training for Marathon

Practice Run at Gasworks Park

This Saturday practice was at Gasworks park on Burke Gilman trail. We practiced for 50min and I ran roughly 3.6miles. Which I could not imagine to do 3 weeks back. Smile I had never been to Gasworks park and had no clue how beautiful the trail is. You can see Seattle skyline from the park and the trail is amazing as it passes through university… Smile 3 weeks into this I am feeling much better… This weeks run was much easier than the first weeks…

I was able to join the team on Thursday for the run at Bellevue Square park.

Not doing so well on fund raising. Sad smile

Saturday Practice at Mill Creek

This week was in California for a conference. Conferences are tough on workout. Got some workout done but not enough… This Saturday our team practice was at Mill Creek. The trails at Mill Creek are really awesome. We started at Run26 store, by far the best store for running gear… We also had a clinic covering running, gear and injuries. This we ran for 40minutes up from 30minutes last week. I ran for 20 or so minutes and I walked remaining. I think I will just do that in final marathon event too.. Few pictures and location from the run…

30th Jan 2011: Sunday Morning Run

Today I stepped out for my practice run around 8:00am in the morning. It was cold and my body was aching from yesterday’s practice. It was tough… I could hardly run for 10-15minutes and then had to switch to walking… Need a lot of practice.. Body is just not fit enough…

Running Route: Roughly 2 milesimage

First Practice Run!!!

Today was our first practice run. It was 30minutes at Sand Point, Magnuson Park in Seattle. Running on thread mill is no comparison to running on trails. I had earlier claimed I ran 30min at a stretch that was actually on thread mill. Today I could not run more than 20min. I had to walk my remaining 10minutes.. Good part is I finished my 30min practice run without giving up. Smile My whole body has been paining whole day.. I need a lot of work to do..

Practice location: Sand Point, Magnuson Park

Team in Training Kickoff Meeting

I was suppose to return from Austria tomorrow but luckily I was able to come a day early. Today was our kickoff event of Team in Training event. I was completely jet lagged but still made it to the event. Was late by few minutes but got majority of the meeting. Some of the honor members shared their stories of fighting blood cancer. It is amazing what they have to go through…

I realized how lucky I am.. I hope I can make a difference and do my part in finding the cure…
