"The run has 3 distances - 111, 222 and 333K to be completed in 24/48 or 72 hours. Most of the run is between 10,000 to 11,000 feet but there is one pass of 17,500 feet approximately for every 111 Kms. So, the 111 K route goes over Khardung La…"

"I am considering a 111K at La Ultra 2017. If you want to run 222/333 in 2016, I will offer to be personal crew. I have experience from 2014 and 2015 :-) Do think about it"

My CI for 2015!

Hi All! It's been ages since I took time to visit here with all you wonderful folks. As promised, I am pleased to report that I have met my CI objectives for 2015. I had promised to run 3 back to back marathons in September, October and November. I turned 50 this year and I wanted to prove to myself that it is okay to be 50! I did run the Kaveri Trail Marathon,(kaveritrailmarathon.com) in September, the Bengaluru Marathon (bengaulurmarathon.com) in October and the Bangalore Ultra…See More

My Experience at La Ultra 2014; My CI

Posted on August 26, 2014 at 4:59am 2 Comments

Hi Folks! I am back after an amazing fortnight in the Himalayas (Ladakh area of Jammu and Kashmir in India). The La Ultra 2014 was everything that it was touted to be. It was a brutal race because of the many variables - altitude, distance, gradients, temperature changes etc. 15 runners from 10 countries showed up at the Start Line and one finished. 

My CI did not pan out as well as I hoped because my runner Allen had to drop out for medical reasons about 7 hours into the…

Foundation Program - Week 7-10

Posted on August 5, 2014 at 4:51am 2 Comments

Hello again! My apologies for the long delay in sharing my continued experiences with the Foundation Program. 

Like I mentioned in the previous post, I took a 4 day break from the program and revisited Week 7 again. I am happy to report that I managed to stick to the recommended program for Weeks 7-10 without much difficulty. I did experience a little calf soreness in Week 9 and 10 after my long run on Sunday. So I did not do the first optional run of the week; basically took…

Foundation Program - Week 6 and 7 reports

Posted on July 3, 2014 at 10:43pm 3 Comments

Hi All! I know that most of you will be excited about the Jackson Hole Run Camps this week, but I wanted to maintain the discipline of sharing my Foundation Program weekly reports.

Well, Week 6 went great and I stuck to the program perfectly. My long run at the end of Week 6 went great and I felt good after 140 minutes run. I started Week 7 enthusiastically and after Day 3, felt a 'twinge' on the left side of my right calf muscle. I decided to take a couple of days off just to…

Foundation Program - Week 5 Report

Posted on June 15, 2014 at 10:14pm 0 Comments

Hello again! I completed my long run of Week 5 yesterday (Sunday in India). There is not much to say except that my body and mind have got conditioned to the schedule and I am enjoying it. 

My long run yesterday was 2 hours and I felt at ease and strong even at the end. My legs felt a little fatigued in the afternoon, but by evening I was fine. I woke up this morning on my Off Day and am feeling fine. 

The discomfort on the inside of my left foot went away within a few minutes…
