RTW Global Challenge 6 is a 10 week program that started July 2, 2019 and will finish 10-weeks later on September 11.  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.

“Enjoying the rain” Today did a 16kms run in 1:51:22 hrs at a lower heart rate of 136 and slower pace of @6:57 min/km fully drenched in rain. After the debacle of BNP Endurathon where I got exhausted after the 19th km because I was running throughout at a HR of over 200 which at times reached 211 also, (medically not advisable). Hence learning from my mistakes, since the last two days in my practice runs, I am not looking at the pace but always keeping an eye on the Heart Rate. And today I ran for nearly 2hrs and didn’t allow my HR to cross 140 mark and felt so much relaxed during and even at the end of my run. After nearly 4yrs of competitive running I have still to learn how to run properly 😳 (Tue 30)

9.94 miles in SAI Kandivali Mumbai (runner profile)

The wet climate will tempt you to stay inside (stick to your bed), but be firm, you are not going to meltdown in rain, instead you will become more stronger, physically and mentally by sticking to your workout. Today did the Weekend Long run of 16kms within 2hrs. Ran at a slow speed in rain as the SAI track was flooded with water and also wanted to maintain low HR. I have often heard people saying “Don’t go out in rain, you will get wet, you will catch cold, you will get fever....” but we Runners never get sick in spite of running for hours in rain. Bottom Line: Running improves our immune system so strong as to fight with any type of viruses. (Sat 3)

16.81 miles in Campbell, ca (runner profile)

Along the order of "you can't even make this stuff up".. while running a 7 minute mile pace, I was running through a park on the San Jose/LG border and a pidgeon flew into me from around a tree. It struck me on the left shoulder and crashed to the ground. It appeared to have a broken leg and wing.. I called Animal Control Services to report the incident, they took my info and a witness email to validate what had happened. They said someone would be out in an hour or so and I was free to go. Now it begs the question... was that a sign?? LOL (Fri 26)

True life can be stranger than faction. Can’t believe this story. You weren’t hurt? 7/26 10:42 pm
It almost felt like getting hit by a slower pitched baseball.. small red mark on me, nothing broke any skin... so I just called santa clara county parks to find out what to do about the bird. Didn't have to file any police report, just an incident report with SCC Parks. It hit me on the shoulder, the careened into a tree, then onto the ground. I have tripped over cats, dogs, even had a baseball hit me at a field where a little league team was playing.. but never a bird lol 7/27 9:05 am
Glad you weren’t hurt James. Could have been bad. 7/27 8:45 pm
Thank you, Bob! Yeah, it hit the bony part, not soft tissue. For the amount of time I spend running these days, I consider myself pretty lucky.. dogs kind of scare me the most.. getting chased hasn't happened yet.. it has before. 7/29 9:19 pm

15.14 miles in Borivali National Park Mumbai (runner profile)

Today completed BNP Endurathon - 25km race in 2:50:04 Found it very difficult as the body was not moving at my pace. I have never run a competitive race at as slow as 6:59 min/km pace which I got today. Sometimes it’s not your day, and today was not mine. In spite of getting podium finishes continuously for the last three years in BNP Endurathon today I found myself at as low as 6th place in my age category of 55+ ( I am 64) The body completely broke down after 19th km. Thus had to finish with run-walk-run strategy as I didn’t want to stop midway. Took 30 minutes more than my best timing (2:20 hrs) on this route which I got two years ago. Will have to seriously think about why this happened and what went wrong, overtraining, low muscle power, lack of exercise, lack of recovery etc etc. A lot of learnings even after 4years of competitive running.

Sometimes we are on and sometimes we are not. Did you have d ouch fuel? Enough sleep? Life over 60 offers lots of challenges. But pick yourself up. Tomorrow is another day! 7/27 8:42 pm
I am not in a habit of taking anything orally while running. I think in practice I will have to start eating something which gives you energy for the later part of your run. Thanks for the advice Bob. 7/27 9:07 pm
