20 KM Run and History Created

31 May 2012 11:43:43

Day : 27th May 2012
Distance Covered : 20 KM
Speed : 7.28 KM/Hr
Laps : (3.1 * 5) and (2.2 * 2) = 19.9 Appprox 20
Place : Govindrajanagar, Vijaynagar , Bangalore
Accompanied By : Harsha (2 KM), Soorya (10 KM)

I want to scream with happiness and joy to my full high pitch voice... Hurraahhh .. Hurrahhh.. Yipppeee... I waited for this day for a long time. The day will be remembered for the feat which I felt is impossible for me in this life time. But it was made possible. I completed 20 KM run without any major problems in my legs. Surprisingly on the same day whole Bangalore ran for 10KM for the event World 10K.

Ketan After Workout
After the Run


After pushing myself hard for nearly 100 DAYS , I was successful in completing 20 KM. I dont know weather the 20 KM is making me happy or the 100 days of non stop practice. In the end the ability to withstand the pain, tears of joy, wanting to push the limits were the winner.

The only question many people would ask "Is it the end of the running or anything more is left". The only answer I could think right now is "YES" . "Yeh dil mange more". Probably the next target would be to run 25 KM. Till then I hope and wish I remain injury free.

Many people would be surprised by reading my 12KM , 15.4KM blogs and now this one. They would be pondering why this stupid man is continously writing something only on running and nothing else. And constantly bragging about his own runs. I would like to tell all these people come LETS RUN TOGETHER and experience the feeling of being ALIVE.

Moral : Consistency pays.

Ketan,
Well done. You looks slim now; you proved 'nothing is impossible'. I don't know if you are running every day or once in a week. It is always better to run on daily basis at least a short distance which will not strain your joints.
