Day 10

Archived – click Post Title to view all. It’s a little after 8 am. The 10th day. The weather is cool and cloudy – the best conditions for running. As usual, we are at the race from early morning. To tell the truth, some of our colleagues manage to come late. Only Ashprihanal and I are brought here by car. All others get here themselves by bikes. That’s why they are not bound by time – they need only to come here on time. Several times Diganta, Pushkar and Volodya were late. We are heading off and they are just arriving. Volodya told a story. He runs till the end – up to midnight to do his daily stint of 111 laps and often doesn’t have enough sleep. Yesterday he woke up at 3 am and went to the toilet. Then he woke up in the kitchen on the stool at 4 am. The light was on. It took him some time to remember that he wanted to go to the toilet. “Oh, my God!” He looked around – everything is ok; he managed to go to the toilet. Purna-Samarpan generally walks – he has problems with feet. “Feet burn” because of the concrete surface of the ground. Pushkar has symptoms of last year – indigestion and troubles with his feet. He now he does fast walking. Pavol is stilling deal with shin splints. Shuprabha as usually is very light and runs steadily with a semi-smile on her face. Yesterday on the 9th day I did 115 laps….

We are pleased to draw your attention to the latest scientific and technical achievements of Finnish secret service how to improve your physical efficiency. Indeed, this is Ashprihanal, the leader of our race. His inimitable relaxed style of running came back to him. I remember the legendary Olympic champion Emil Z?topek who was criticized for his running style. Usually he answered that it is speed and not beauty that is of importance in sports.

Joke of the day 8

This is not the first day already that we watch how the little bird chases a squirrel. Looks like it’s always the same bird and the same squirrel. Birdie chases her on the roof, on the trees and on the grass. Probably they live close to each other. Pranjal says – they have some personal stuff going on :)

Day 8

The day was preety good. But still a rainy weather. 4 times there was a pouring rain… I have been running steadily and i’ll have 60 miles today. Now I will walk 5 more laps, no energy in legs. I ate something wrong again. I have my own signs how to figure out what caused the symptoms on my legs. Either I have to do stretching and everything will be ok, either it’s time to eat or take a break. Now it seems I have to eat normally. But even after the dinner it didn’t get better. I even took a second break earlier. And after the third break around 9 pm I got a feeling I cannot even walk. But that’s ok, tomorrow everything will be all right.
