Joke of the day 13

Yesterday Pranjal started seeing subtle worlds. Around midnight when he was falling asleep out of exhaustion he saw a gnome standing on the pavement. He was taken aback. We he ran closer, he found out it was a regular hydrant.

Day 13

The 13th day. It’s 3.10 pm.. I did 115 laps yesterday, although I was hoping to do 116. At the last moment I got some troubles with the left shin splint, so I decided not to push. It is still reminding me of itself, but I am ignoring this acquaintance by doing special warm-up exercises, applying ointments and doing visualization. Yesterday was the first hot day with temperatures over 30 C. By evening, fatigue started to accumulate in legs and I figured out that with such endurance challenges it was crucial that I maintain alkaline balance. In the afternoon I felt lactic acid forming. So I started drinking water with coral calcium and it did a lot of good. We had a rain today, now the sky is clear and it is becoming hot. There’s some not very inspiring news, too. Pranab is not allowed to run today. Rupantar, the race director, wants him to discontinue the race due to the worsening condition of his skin. We all really want to stay all together. But we’ll see. The life goes on.

Day 11

Archived – click Post Title to view all. Day 11 9.36 am Brief results report for 30 days Ashprihanal’s total for 10 days – 751 miles. That’s great! He definitely would be among prizewinners at the 10 days races as well as Petya and Grahak, who have already done 660 miles. Unlike in 10 days race this is only beginning for us – 1/5 part. You can see all results on appropriate page. I just want to say that all guys have done great job! My total is 574 miles, it’s 21 miles less than lest year, but it does not bother me. I feel perfectly well. Full speed ahead!!! 5.30 pm Continuation It’s the sixth day which goes quite well. I run a little more than 60 miles during all previous 5 days. It is good schedule for the first part of the distance. As I had learned from my last years’ experiences, my body needs five more days to be able enlarge loads without serious consequences. All these are ahead. Mood is calm and steady. I listen to my favorite music, answer emails while running. Now I have the schedule as follows: start is at 6 am, first break (for 15 min) is at 2 pm, the next break is at 6pm, and the last (for 10 min) is at 9 pm. Approximately at 11 pm or little after I finish 115 laps. My night sleep is not ideal. Because of my hips I wake up at night. Inspite of it, to my big surprise, at 5.10 am when my alarm-clock is ringing…
