Some stats

Augu 3, 2009

This was my 6 successful finish on 3100 mile race and I finished #6. Many dreams came true during the race… Can’t tell everything but even small statistics is speaking eloquently :) First 1000 miles – 16 days + 12 hours Second 1000 miles – 15 days + 13 hours Third 1000 miles –  14 days + 15 hours First 10 days – 573 miles Last full 10 days – 683 miles I bettered my time by 47 hours – I even can’t dream about it. I wanted to be faster then 50 days, 49+. But run in 48+ !!! From 21 line I went up to 15 place in 3100 finishers list. Pair of shoes woren – 15 Weight lost – 7 kg (also a record :) Massages – 1. During a typical day I did 1-2 stretching for 5 min and last 46 days my muscles recovered automatically. Speaking ojas terms – 17,6 :) Most interesting thing happened on the first day after finish – for the first time I jog for 2 miles in my pleasure together with Pranjal, who is running already for more then 400 days (2 miles minimum). I felt myself excellent after running! The fullness of life is in the motion. The physical power has only one source – The spiritual power. Sri Chinmoy

Actually, complete acclimatization will take place during the race itself… I ran about 560 km in the last month of training, which is not so much. But in my experience physical training can affect say first 10 day of the race. Then… experience of whole previous life is needed :) Faith in yourself, your life ideals and inner cry for the Supreme help tremendously. 3100 mile race is so long, that you can never predict what kind of problem will come to strengthen you. My feeling is that I’m more prepared this time. I even set few personal training records while running 7 and 7,5 hours (60 and 65 km). On the asphalt. I was trying to combine soft and hard surfaces, because our 3100 loop is all concrete. …In Goloseevsky forest where I’m training in Kiev, I have my favorite clearing with age old oaks. And I caught myself that while running in the forest I’m thinking about 3100 race, and while on the race in New York – I’m dreaming about my forest. Paradox!  

On the verge of 3100 I was lucky to get tremendous joy from parachute jump from 3 000 m near Moscow. And yesterday I visited Dr. Kumar, whom Sri Chinmoy valued a lot. This doctor defines very accurately your problems via pulse and prescribes ayurvedic medicine. He gave one Himalayan’s pills to Pranab and others with the words, that they…
