Week 3 Run 1 Completed


Hello Everyone,

I was so much worried last week thinking about the 3 minute non-stop run. During my first 2 weeks, i was waiting for one word all the time, SLOW DOWN. So 3 minutes was a big deal for me. I was feeling more comfortable during the run than the first 2 weeks though. Guess what, when Laura said slow down, i had more stamina left to run (at least another 1min). Still not able to believe that i did it with such ease. Till last week i had my doubts, if i can ever do this. But now i have got the confidence.

Here are 2 things i have done different from previous 2 weeks, not sure if they are the reason though.

1. Took an extra day off after the last week.

2. Had a banana to have the energy.

And the added perks :

I have reduced 2kgs :)

Had to punch an extra hole in my belt :D

Cant express how happy i am right now, and its all because of u guys. Thanks a ton, and Laura i love you ;)

Sivaran it is wonderful isn't it ? It makes you wonder " why didn't I do that earlier"

I do take extra day rest now and again if I feel I need it and I also have a banana after a run sometime.
