My Running Journey from 21 KM to New York City Marathon Part - 1

My Running Journey from Half Marathon (21 KM) to New York City Full Marathon (42 km)




        Journey started from Jan, 2019 when I completed my first HM. After completing my first HF I got confidence and planned to do another HM which was in Feb 2019 with some better timing. I registered for my 2nd Half Marathon 'Unis Running Inner Strength Half Marathon' on 2/Feb/2019, which was on 17/Feb/2019. Now for this HM I had only 2 weeks for practice.


       

         I had collected my bib no 21154 and t-shirt on 16/Feb/2019 one day before the marathon. On 17/Feb/2019 marathon day, I woke up around 3:30 am in the morning and did my morning routine activity. For this marathon one good thing is that the start and end point of the event are the same, So I planned to take my car and park at the event place and this time my son and wife also wanted to join to cheers-up. We started around 4:00 am from home and reached the starting point around 4:30 am as it was near to my home so it took less time.


        In this event we had HM, 10 km and 5 km run. First started our Half Marathon at sharp 5:00 am in the morning. As it was my second Half Marathon so now, I had some idea how to manage. It was very humid and hot in the morning so I started running slowly. At the starting of the race till 5 km, I was running slowly and completed 5 km in 40 minutes. Then slowly I increased the pace and completed my next 5 km in 30 minutes, then drank some water and continued my run and completed another 8 km in around 50 minutes. Till now I had completed 18 km and everything was good and I was enjoying my run. But after 18 km I was feeling a little tired and now it was tough for me to run fast, so I slowed down my pace and started running slowly and completed my last 3 km in 20 minutes.

        Finally, I completed my 2nd Half Marathon (21 km) in 2:20:22 Hrs which was better than my previous timing. At the end point I met my son and wife who were waiting to finish and they were happy to see me, then collected my marathon medal. After some rest, we moved to the breakfast counter which was arranged by the organizer, had breakfast. After breakfast I took some photos with my 2nd HM medal and came back home. After reaching home I took a rest.






The Main Journey of New York City Marathon 2019 started from here after completing my 2 HM's.

05-June-2020 - Friday Morning Long Drive After Long Time

मैं पेशेवर काम कर रहा हूं, मेरा जीवन बहुत व्यस्त है। अगर आप मेरी रोजाना की दिनचर्या के बारे में जानना चाहते हैं, तो मेरे ब्लॉग को रोजाना पढ़ें।
आज शुक्रवार सुबह, मैं लगभग 5:30 बजे उठा, फिर बालकनी में गया और देखा कि मौसम बहुत अच्छा है। लॉन्ग ड्राइव के लिए 3 महीने के लॉकडाउन के बाद अचानक प्लान किया। फिर मैंने अपनी कार की चाबी ली और सुबह 6 बजे के करीब नीचे चला गया। मैंने अपनी कार शुरू की और लगभग 100 किमी के लॉग ड्राइव के लिए चला गया। मैंने इस 3 महीने में बहुत सारे बदलाव देखे, पर्यावरण बहुत साफ है, सड़क खाली थी इसलिए मैंने अपनी ड्राइविंग का आनंद लिया। मैंने 25 किमी की ड्राइविंग के बाद एक जगह पर कार रोकी, फिर खुले वातावरण में 1 किमी दौड़ लगाई। बहुत समय बाद मैंने खुली जगह पर दौड़ लगाई। जाते समय सड़क खाली थी, लेकिन घर लौटते समय सड़क पर कुछ लोगों और वाहनों को देखा। आउटिंग के तीन घंटे बाद आखिरकार 9 बजे के आसपास घर पहुंचा। फिर स्नान किया कुछ ब्रेड स्लाइस के साथ एक कप चाय ली और मेरी सुबह की गतिविधि समाप्त की।
