A 5K in 30 minutes after a long time

It used to be that I could do the same distance in 5 fewer minutes about 5 years back. But these days, age has caught up. 30 minute 5K is not a everyday thing for me. The beautiful temperatures with the light wind helped a lot.

    Wow. I sometimes wonder how safe it is to run on roads (as against pavements) in the west. In India, the onus is always on the more affluent traveller to ensure safety – so running on roads is not too much of a problem (though the risk does exist).

      It is never advisable to run on roads. All it takes is one distracted driver. On the other hand, pavements are very hard on the knees. Concrete is about 10 times harder than asphalt. If you run on road, make sure it is reasonably empty and always run against traffic. And be on the lookout for cars.

      In this picture though, I was running on a dirt road.
