Week 3 is in and I?m more focused than before!
I am quite satisfied with the results in the last 6days of my training.
Tempo runs have been stronger and faster and even recovery is much better. Finally Muscle Memory is showing its existence and I am getting comfortable in my speed workouts.
Weather-wise Bangalore was pretty uncool in the last week. Uncool because it rained and I picked up cold along with nonstop coughing which turned into a Laryngitis. As I rushed to doctor for some antibiotics, I also turned towards my beloved Charge (Effervescent Vitamin C) to get me back on my feet as soon as possible.
I took two days of rest (a day off from work too ;)) and got back in action with a 10K recovery run, prepping muscles for the next day's demanding workout.

Sneak Peak Into My Training?[/caption]
I do my intervals on a tar road and not on track. The days I am traveling or weather is not favorable I head to a treadmill. Yes I run on treadmill, even though it
is mentally taxing and often leads to boredom - I prefer doing something and rather than missing my workout.
I started my day with an Activate (the two things which I ensure to never miss whether I am training or not is Activate and ProTotal) and small piece of Banana.
I did 1000X5 repeats, out of these five repeats only two were off the target and other three turned out to be good. Hydration was plain water throughout the workout. Post workout, I had Recover and a cup of sugarless coffee with my running partner and pacer Anil Mahobia.
There were Easy Paced runs between 5K- 10k for the next couple of days followed by training with Dr Yash Pandey.
Yash has incorporated staircase running along with core workouts in my training. Something which helps me build strength and endurance. We use an elevator to go down from 4th to the ground floor and I am supposed to sprint up and reach before the elevator reaches the 4th floor! I run some 50 floors, couple with core workouts placed at definite intervals.
My goal for next week is to focus more on stretching and flexibility. As I go deeper into my training, it is very much required to keep injuries at bay.
Stay fit & focused!
