Today marks the completion of 10,000 rotations of the earth ever since we got married. I am a metrics system kind of guy 🙂 So, matched the 10K day with a 10K run.
Last time I ran with the group was on October 6, 2019. Or almost a year back. Joined the group for a 6.2 mile (10K) run at 9:30min/mile pace. There were 15 runners in all including me (Kasturi and her daughter is missing from this picture since they had to leave). And then, of course, the traditional Chalupa coffee adda. Thanks Debjyoti, Rituparna, Ashok, Pooja, Malobika, Sudipto, Indrani, Seemita-di, Mrinal-da, Soma, Sanjib and Sharmila for a good time.
Beautiful morning with fall like weather. Cool, breezy, cloudless skies…
@ 10 min/mile pace.
Slacked off for a day – but caught up today to meet the monthly goal
Siva wrote to me that after reading a prior blog post about me completing 100K in July (after a long time), he took upon himself the challenge to walk/trek 100M (miles) in August. Which he did! And wrote me last night to let me know that.
Well, one good deed deserves another. Now, I am inspired to get better. So, my counter promise to Siva is that I will increase 10% on my previous July distance.
September goal is 110K = 69M.
5K (3M)down this morning!
Fortunately, there was enough shade to protect me from the direct sunlight – nevertheless it was hot and humid. Had to slow down to 10:45 min/mile given how exhausting it was becoming.
… and more of an obstacle run this morning….
Way too many trees fallen in the trail from last afternoon’s squalls.
It was a little hot and a humid a lot. But the trail was filled with enthusiastic walkers, runners and bikers.
Ran into old friends – Debjyoti and Rituparna during the 10K run.
