Filling in since Auroville

It’s been a couple of weeks now since Auroville. The high of the marathon is gone and now it is back to some training – almost seems like maintenance work – bug fixing, problem resolutions and keeping that engine going.

So, what have I done on the training front –

  • Some short runs (5ks) on the treadmill and there was once a solo road run
  • Just one longish run – the classic with Shahid which was good.
  • Some weights routines – a couple of times for the legs and for the upper body and core
  • I remember one day when I went hard at the elliptical and that was nice
  • and today – the 10k with the usual suspects was good as well

So, it hasn’t been too bad (just about every alternate day on an average), but it hasn’t been great either.

I keep talking about karthik_v2.0 coming out a little stronger, a little more flexible and a little lighter, but while the plan is good, the implementation, as usual, ain’t great. Anyway, I hope to release k_v2.0 in 3-4 months time only and so it’s still early days. πŸ™‚

The other news is my cancellation of the Big Sur plans. It became clear that it was way too expensive to make that trip. I spoke with the Singapore airlines folks when I was booking Moms ticket, and they explained that the taxes and surcharge is so high because of the current oil prices which are going through the roof. In fact, they said that it might go higher if the situation in Libya persists. Anyway, Bigsur went out of the window, and may be it is good in one way, because that was when the v2.0 picture emerged. πŸ™‚

So, that’s it from here for the moment. How I wish the blog title was true. I would rather be smoking and running, than nonsmoking and walking.

    πŸ™‚ I wish I could fix it easily. The ITB seems to be a stubborn customer..
