Jan 8, 2009 – Friday: Another super run with Ram this time. :-)

Skipped y’day and so was keen to go this morning.

Woke up, stretched a little bit, picked up Puru and was at Dimensions by 5. Several illustrious runners turned up today, most of them multi-marathoners and have been running for long – We had Ram (as usual), Shankar, Puru, Tigerswami, Balaji and KK – Lot of visible and jovial camaraderie amongst them. Tiger had got a colleague along as well, and I could see him staying an arms length away and watching the whole group chat, a little puzzled at this middle-aged, balding bunch.

Ram and I started first and stayed ahead of the pack. Ram had not recovered totally from his viral fever and was still setting a really nice pace, around 10 kmph. Anything more and I would be struggling to keep pace throughout and might have considered dropping back to join the pack. I took him through the Kesavaperumal small loop that Prabhakar showed me and apart from that stuck to the standard route.

Ram was tapering down for Mumbai + having fever + todays target was 10k => We turned at Rajaji Bhavan instead of going through to Velankani, dropped our pace just that touch and ran all the way back. Totally we did a touch over 10k in a tick over 1 hour. 🙂

Today’s run was really nice for me because there were no walk breaks at all. I don’t remember any run in the last several months (>5-6 k) where there were no walk breaks at all.
