Intro

This blog as might be apparent from the title has to do with running, biking and basically other outdoor individualistic sports, sometimes extreme, such as rock climbing . But don't be surprised if you find articles on work, personal life, music and even philosophy, this blog is an exception in this aspect in the blogosphere of running blogs and I am trying to revamp the blog to make it more runner friendly. You might want to look at the sidebar titled 'categorised', which as is obvious, categorizes my posts into different areas of interest.
The other thing that might interest many people is a section on 'running videos' and 'general videos' on the side bar, which I keep updating now and then.
I plan to bring in more posts on running and biking, with some added colour, so as to make them 'complete'. That's about it for now.
As a post-note, I have run a half-marathon, but I am yet to attempt a marathon, which through some concerted effort and time should happen in the future, but that ofcourse is not the culmination of this blog, it would on the contrary be something to jumpstart this blog onto new vistas.

All time low

The last two weeks had been really hectic(procrastination is a tough task master) as I had to work (some one said meticulous work ethic is the best..hmmph) towards getting tangible results for the evaluation which I had on the first of this month. And who said debugging was an easy job; just when you thought everything was fine and dandy, you suddenly realise that the program isn't compatible(for some strange reason) when you have a c source code and c++ header files. Anyway, I somehow managed to get it working in the nick of time.
I always thought (at least during the last two years) that "I could run 10 laps (4 kms) in the stadium any day, even if I hadn't run for more than 3 weeks". But today I discovered the amount of truth in that assertion when I barely managed 5 laps. My legs felt really weak during the run as if all the calf-muscles had been wasted (atrophy).
My fitness now is at an all-time low, but the good news is that the final evaluation isn't due till april end, so I might get a good amount of time to work on regularising my runs.
