Run The World Gobal Challenge celebrates running around the the world.   We have changed things a bit.  Starting January 1, 2020 we will be doing monthly RTW Challdnges.  We will also continue to keep track of miles from when we started as total miles since July 4, 2018.  And of course our weekly log starting on Wednesday and finishing on Tuesday.  The idea is to run or walk and then log those miles on your My Best Runs account. There is no entry fee.  You just need a MBR account and that’s Free too.  Once you sign up you log your miles on your account.

Plan every day as if it matters the most. Give every single day your best effort and focus on what you are doing today to the best of your ability and you will make each day your masterpiece. Today is Day 11 of the 31 days “Run to the Moon” challenge. Did 15kms of Nonstop indoor running in 1:58:32 hrs, mostly in Zone 2, at a low heart rate of 126 bpm. Loved to see the smooth HR graph. Almost 2 hrs of running was done without any hydration. Actually in slow running you don’t feel like eating or drinking anything orally for the first two hours as our body can produce energy for running from the fats stored in our body.

Today is Day 7 of the 31 days “Run to the Moon” challenge. Did 10 Kms of MAF aerobic low Heart Rate indoor running at a slow pace of 8:11 min/km. After nearly 3 months of MAF aerobic HR training, today I was successful in maintaining my aerobic HR threshold level of 125 bpm. The average HR was 125 bpm for nearly 1:21:56 hrs of running , mostly in Zone 2. Usually it takes 6 to 12 months of training to show the results. Though the pace was very slow but In aerobic training we have not to worry about how slow we are going, let it be at a jogging pace, nor we have to see the time taken to complete the run, but the only thing which matters is that your Heart Rate should not shoot above your aerobic threshold level.

Today is the 5th day of the 31 days “Run to the Moon” challenge. Did 10 Kms of MAF aerobic low Heart Rate indoor running at an average HR of 130 bpm. Love today smooth HR graph. Health is the greatest wealth we will ever have. Without our health, our vitality, our best energy, every part of our lives has the opportunity to suffer. Health is about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being. They are all connected. They are all important. We need to do exercise to keep or body fit and healthy, not just a simple exercise but a “Regular Exercise”. Everybody could do exercise but there are only a few people who could keep up with regular exercise since most of us are lazy to do it. Doing regular exercise could really contribute a lot with regards to our health. This could make us active, relax, and attentive at the same time. We must ask ourselves - is my job more important than my overall wellbeing? Does the money in the bank mean more to me than my long-term health? To conclude, achieving a healthy lifestyle is well within your control if you start the journey with clear goals in mind and the realisation that it is your greatest wealth. An excellent health will enable you live a long life, have high levels of energy and vitality and more importantly live happily and peacefully, every moment. This will be your best return on your Investment. Happiest people in the world are the ones who have Health and Love in their life.

Today is the 4th day of the “Run to the Moon” event. Did 10kms of indoor progression running in 1:04:03 hrs at an average pace of 6:23 min/km. A progression run is a run with structured pace increases from beginning to end, starting at a comfortable speed, gradually getting faster to wrap up at the end. Start your run at a slower pace as compared with your usual running speed. This will also give your body a chance to warm up. Once your breathing becomes more controlled and the strength returns to your legs, you can start running at a level of quickness that you’re more accustomed to, which will seem much easier now. Always remember not to start your runs too fast otherwise you will slow down at the end, and thus fail in your attempt to get your Personal Best. Progression runs, whose defining characteristic is a steady acceleration, helps develop your sense of pacing, and trains you to hold onto your speed--even when you're slightly tired. Continue the momentum, Stay Active, Stay Healthy irrespective of circumstances. Stay Home,Keep Running, Keep Fit. (Tue 23)

Good things don’t always come to those who wait, you have to go and get them. The only way you can ensure your success is by working on your goals to achieve them. If you choose to do nothing, then nothing will happen. No successful person ever got what he wanted by simply waiting around. You need to put in the work and be patient in order to reach your goals. You and only you can make it happen. So stop waiting around, go for it ! Today is the 3rd day of “Run to the Moon” Did 10kms of indoor running in 1:14:56 hrs at a easy pace of @ 7:29 min/km.

“Run To The Moon” To achieve something we need to set goals. Goals are our plans to succeed. Goals give us a sense of direction, they give us something to aim for, they motivate us, they help us track our personal progress. These are all the reasons that goals are important to have. Without a goal we don’t have a target, therefore we shoot aimlessly at nothing or spend our lives doing nothing. Today I did the first run of “Run to the Moon” virtual event doing 10kms of indoor running in 1:07:54 hrs @ 6:46 min/km pace.

“26 Virtual Rio De Janeiro Half Marathon” Virtual running events are talk of the town nowadays because the regular events might take a long to restart. Yesterday I took part in 26 Virtual Rio De Janeiro Half Marathon, completed it in 2:42:40 hrs @ 7:43 min/km pace. People from all over the world can take part in these virtual runs. But the problem with me is that I am in a Red Zone hence have to run indoors only. In Indoor running you have to put brakes every few seconds for turning which doesn’t allow you to run at a faster pace. Continue the momentum, Stay Active, Stay Healthy irrespective of circumstances.

Many a times we tend to get so caught up in times/paces/distances, both our own and of others, and the comparisons that we forget to just enjoy the thrill, pain and endorphins of a good run. Today I did an indoor slow MAF HR run of 15 kms with a slow time of 1:54:36 hrs at a low Heart Rate of 136 bpm @ 7:38 min/km pace, a pace which would usually look like as a ‘bad,slow’ run. But the enjoyment reminded me not to become so obsessed about racing against the clock or against my own or even others times. By doing so we forget to appreciate the feeling of a strong run and the feeling of freedom and enjoyment. Dream your goals quietly, focus only on yours, don’t lose the love of the run or take yourself too seriously. Strength and determination can be measured in many ways – find what’s important to you.

The tough time and the tough life has made us tougher than before. Today did over 2 hrs of nonstop indoor aerobic running (without hydration) covering 16kms at a slow pace of 7:57 min/km and a low HR of 133 bpm (mostly in Zone 3). Without hydration because in aerobic slow running you hardly require any oral input in the first two hours. Don’t be afraid of getting starved, aerobic running teaches your body to burn fats stored in the body to get energy throughout your running.

Today did 16kms of aerobic indoor running in 2:07:49 hrs @ 7:59 min/km pace and an average low HR of 131 bpm. Tried my best to keep it around 125 but in between it shot up. The most irritating part of aerobic running is that most of the times, you have to put brakes on your speed to be within the Heart rate limit. The moment you take 4-5 fast strides the HR shoots up. But that is the method of this training, to remain within your Maximum Aerobic Heart Rate. We must abide by the laws of nature which gives us plenty of examples like “unless the iron becomes red hot, you cannot mould it, so is this training which is heating our body to get moulded and give us better results once it fully adapts it.

My first attempt at stairs climbing. Today instead of my regular weekend long run I did stairs climbing, up & down, 6000 stairs in 57 minutes. 10 Floors in my building has = 200 stairs One round up & down = 400 stairs I did 15 rounds x 400 stairs = 6000 stairs Ascended and Descended = 300 Floors Time taken : 57 minutes When running, your body moves in a horizontal pattern with a slight vertical movement. However, with stair climbing, your muscles are forced to resist gravity and move in a vertical pattern. When you move your body vertically, you place high demands on the lower body. Your leg muscles must repeatedly lift your body against the pull of gravity which puts more demand on the muscles in the lower body. When you climb stairs, you burn twice the fat in half the time than if you run. Thinking of adding stairs workout this in my weekly schedule. Stay Home, Stay Healthy. Keep Running, Keep Fit. (Sat 23)

Today did almost 2 hrs of nonstop indoor running, without hydration, covering 15kms @ 7:46 min/km pace, average HR 139 bpm. In the slow runs body burns fats for fuelling, hence I didn’t feel like drinking or eating anything orally throughout the run. Was not much tired also. Could feel the development of slow-twitch muscle fibres in calfs and thighs, which are helpful for endurance running. If you want your body to burn body fats then you have to cut your carbohydrates intake because when your body has a full supply of carbohydrates to break down for fuel, it doesn’t take trouble to burn much fats. So before long endurance runs, instead of carbo loading, change to eating a higher fat meal which will help your body burn the fats and provide enough energy to fuel the run. Remember that your body will burn fats at a greater rate when you run one 120 minute session rather than doing two 60 minute runs the same day. Consistently train your body over a period of weeks and months to shift your metabolism. Stay Home, Stay Healthy. Keep Running, Stay Fit. (Thu 21)

Wow! Today did My Longest Indoor Run, Full Marathon 42.2 kms. 42.2 kms in 5:32:40 hrs @ 7:52min/km pace Being a marathon runner I really love running, be it anywhere, never miss my running workouts. During the last two months of lockdown I have been running indoors every alternate day, sometimes 10k, or 15k or 21k and a few times 27k. Last week an indoor run “India United Against Covid-19 Indoor Run 2020” was announced, it is being held today. I saw that there were categories from 3k to 42k, so a thought came to my mind that why not try 42k this time, though it will be difficult for me but I will manage. So I registered for Full Marathon 42k. I think officially I might not get such a chance again in life, so wanted to make it memorable by running a Full Marathon. Now I can proudly say and remember it as my only Indoor Full Marathon having run during the lockdown 2020. Did the Full Marathon after a gap of nearly 10 years. I started running Full Marathon from the inaugural SCMM in 2004. From then onwards for 7 years continuously I ran FM in SCMM but in 2010 I suffered from Cervical Spondylitis and had to remain away from running for 3 yrs. On resuming running I chose Half Marathon so as not to put load on my neck. Running a Full Marathon after a gap of 10 years and that too indoors was a great challenge for me, it was not at all easy, found it difficult after the 30th km, but I love running so I enjoyed it and completed it as a challenge. It was indeed a very different experience. My Garmin Forerunner 225 battery exhausted after the 32nd km after running for 4 hrs, and when I charged it, it restarted so I got two datas, 32km and 10.2 km ( Totalling 42.2 kms in 5:32:40 hrs @ 7:52 min/km pace.)

Today did 15kms of Indoor aerobic running at a low heart rate of 129 bpm in 2:02:00 hrs. The problem in aerobic running is that the moment you start running fast your HR shoots up. Tried my best to keep it around 125 bpm (my maximum aerobic HR limit) by slowing down constantly @ 8:08 min/km. But once you mould your heart to beat at a slower rate by aerobic training, then even if you run fast, your HR will not shoot up and save you from injury, but it will take a couple of years of slow running to do that. Stay Home, Stay Healthy. Keep Running, Keep Fit. (Thu 7)

“Watermelon is Wonderful” Did the morning run of 18kms in 2:15:42 hrs @ 7:32 min/km pace at a HR of 137 bpm. I prefer natural foods instead of supplements for recovery, so after the run enjoying my favourite summer fruit, amazingly sweet, juicy and ripe watermelon. There are a lot of nutritional benefits of watermelon especially for runners, so we should eat it more because it has more than 90 percent water, it is incredibly hydrating. Eating watermelon pre or post run can help you rehydrate. The juicy fruit is also loaded with vitamins A, B6, and C, to boost your immunity. Watermelon juice is rich in the amino acid L-citrulline. Drinking watermelon juice postrun helps to reduce muscle soreness and cramps. It also has potassium and electrolytes, which are critical after a long, hot summer run. Eating Watermelon improves your running performance by increasing your ability to use oxygen efficiently because, like beetroot, it also contains nitric acid, which can improve blood flow and oxygen uptake improving your VO2 Max levels. Post-run carbs are crucial for replenishing glycogen and with 21 grams of carbs per serving, watermelon is great to boost the recovery. So reaching for a refreshing watermelon after your next run is a great way to rehydrate your stores. Stay Home, Stay Healthy. Keep Fit, Keep Running. (Tue 5)

Today did my weekend long run of 21.1 kms ( HM) in 2:26:32 hrs @ 6:56 min/km pace. The lockdown has been further extended, so still many more days to do the workouts at home. Use exercise or running as a way to relieve stress, feel good, and remove boredom. Boredom often leads to poor food choices, which often lead to low energy and more poor food choices, weight gain and increased inflammation which can weaken the immune system. In contrast, exercise is designed to keep you moving, keep you burning calories, maintaining body weight, and preserving/building muscle tissue,. There are also mental benefits - you get an endorphin rush, relieve stress, and have the satisfaction of knowing you are exercising and doing something positive for your body and brain while you are stuck at home. So Stay Home, Stay Healthy & Stay Fit. (Sat 2)

Indoor Half Marathon at a low Heart Rate of @ 122 bpm Today I did 21.1 kms of indoor aerobic running in 2:52:18 hrs at a very slow pace of @ 8:09 min/km. Under this training you have to keep an eye on the HR only and not on the pace per km nor on the overall time taken to complete the distance, let the pace be very very slow but HR should not cross your Maximum limit. In Aerobic training you have to run below your Maximum aerobic HR limit. As I am 65 yrs old my maximum aerobic Heart Rate is @ 115 bpm (180-65=115). Tried my best to be within that limit but still crossed a bit to run @ 122 bpm. The problem comes when after running a few kms your body is warmed up and you want to run faster but suddenly the Heart Rate starts shooting up, thus you have to slow down immediately. The moment HR went above 115 bpm I had to reduce my speed to be within the HR limit. The problem also comes in the last few kms, when the body is exhausted, at that time it becomes very difficult to keep the HR down while running, hence you have to almost jog or start walking to keep HR within the limits and thereby registering a very bad pace. It needs years of aerobic running practice at a slow speed to develop low heart race pace. I loved today’s HR graph. It is not easy to run for nearly 3 hrs at a low Heart Rate of @ 122 bpm. (Tue 28)

My fastest indoor 10k Today morning did the “10k Virtual Lockdown Indoor run” in 59:41 minutes at a faster pace of @ 5:58 min/km Since the last two months I was working on aerobic low heart rate slow runs, running at a slow pace of @ 7:30 min/km. Today morning I was afraid whether I will be able to run any faster, but found that there is still some speed left in me and by regular practice of speed workouts I can gain momentum. But mind you it was not easy doing a speed workout after a gap of two months. (Sun 26)

Today I did my weekend long run. Did 24kms of slow running in my house in 2:52:02 hrs at a slow pace of 7:10 min/km. Running at an easy & comfortable pace strengthens your muscles, your lungs, and your heart, trains your respiratory, cardio and muscular systems to be more efficient. A weekly long, slow run will improve your endurance, enhance your fat-burning ability, strengthens and improve bloodflow to your muscles - especially your legs, arms and torso and build mental toughness. Stay home, be safe & keep running. (Sat 11)

Today morning did 18kms of running in my home in 2:05:05 hrs at an easy pace of @ 6:57 min/km. Though we are passing through a difficult time but we must see positivity in everything. Is this is a blessing in disguise for us ? Because of No Office and being at home, we have plenty of time at hand, we have got a golden chance to relax after our workouts. I sleep nearly 2-3 hrs in the afternoon to get full recovery. I have not seen such a phase in my 64 yrs of life when we have got so much time at hand, so we must also take full advantage of this time. Keep running, keep doing exercises to keep yourself fit, everything will be alright. (Sat 4)

Where there is will, there is a way. Half Marathon on my terrace. My last two workouts were on the Western Express Highway Mumbai. Some people, reading my posts, requested me not to go outside on the roads for running. I humbly regard their gestures and thank them for their advice. So today morning I dressed up and climbed one floor to reach my terrace. Could not get good pace due to small place but managed to do 21.1 Kms (Half marathon distance) @ 6:57 min/km pace in 2:26:46 hrs. (Mon 23)
