My Running Journey from 21 KM to New York City Marathon Part - 2

Click below link for Part - 1

        The Main Journey of New York City Marathon 2019 started from here after completing two Half Marathons. But till now I never thought to run Full Marathon. I never dreamed for Full Marathon. Also, with the help of some of my runner friends Bilal, Prakash, Laxman I joined some running WhatsApp groups. I started getting lots of knowledge about running and motivation from them. Which helped me a lot during my New York City Marathon Journey.

 

List of 10 Runners

In the last week of Mar, 2019, I got mail from TCS Fit4life to apply for the 'New York City Marathon 2019'. I applied for this event on 05/April/2019. To apply we have completed any Half Marathon or Full Marathon in the last 6 months because we need to update timing details and upload certificates. I just applied for the 'New York City Marathon 2019' and forgot. After two months, on 19/June/2019, when I was sitting in office and checking my TCS mail then I saw one mail from 'Megan Wright' mentioning that 'Congratulations! you are one of our 2019 TCS New York City Marathon global Employee Contest winners'. I couldn't believe that I got selected for the New York City Marathon so replied to Megan asking is it true? Next day I got a reply from 'Megan Wright' Yes, it’s true and you are one of the winners of '2019 TCS New York City Marathon Employee Contest' and all expenses for this trip are taken care by TCS. Even after getting a reply from Megan, I didn't believe in this, so I checked with other TCS runners and came to know that TCS select globally 10 peoples every year and send them to the New York City marathon. With this news I was very happy as I never thought that I got selected for the 'New York City Marathon' which comes in world top 5 Marathons and its dream of every runner to run in such a big marathon.

        After two weeks we got the list of all 10 runners who got selected for the 'New York City Marathon 2019'. After we got the list of 10 runners Nilesh Velankar created a WhatsApp group and added all 10 in the group and we started discussing in WhatsApp group. I was very happy that I got selected but still lots of things were coming to mind like 'How to get Visa', 'I will get Visa or not', 'how to prepare for Full Marathon', I am able to complete Full Marathon or not as I started my HM in Jan, 2019. After one week we got another email from Megan, in that everything was mentioned in detail about the Visa process, Travel Ticket, Hotel Stay and also the link to join virtual training. 

        Now I got some hope and started dreaming about my New York journey. We had different training schedules for 20 weeks, 16 weeks, 12 weeks. I joined 16-week virtual training of 'New York Road Runner' (NYRR) on 15/July/2019. Also meet TCS Striders coach Prasad sir to get some running tips and how to prepare for Full Marathon. Now I had around 110 days to make my dream successful as the New York City marathon was on 3/Nov/2019. In these 110 days I need to get my Visa ready, get my travel tickets, get hotel accommodation, and main challenge to get time from busy schedule and prepare for Full Marathon, especially when you are married and having a kid.

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।                                                                 ------------------------

My running journey from 0 km to 5 km

                    My running journey started in  2017,  when I started facing minor health glitches . In 2016, I went for my medical check-up and I also want to have a medical certificate, which is mandatory for Schengen   Visa processing as I had an official  trip planned for Sweden. I gave a blood sample for tests and after the report came, I couldn't believe that I have high cholesterol and thyroid. I went to another hospital for my check-up and got the same report there also. Till then I was always thinking that I will never suffer with this kind of disease as I was a sports person during my school days. But I forgot one thing that after 2010 I stopped all my games and exercises.                 After that I was very much distressed and started thinking about my health. I started walking daily then one day I saw one person running, when I was walking on the road. I also tried to run but was not able to run even for 500 meters and stopped .                 From the next day on

Benefits of Morning Walk

"Walk an hour a day and move your diseases away"         There are several ways to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle and walking is one of them. Walking is good for us as it is an aerobic exercise that burns calories, improves blood circulation, and makes us feel energized. In the beginning, start walking for 30 minutes at a slow pace and then increase the time to 1 hr or 10,000 steps every day. Always we need to do warm-up and cool-down exercises before and after walking to prevent injuring your muscles and tissues. It is always suggestable that if you have any orthopedic or any other health issues, consult your doctor before setting your fitness goals. Best Time For Walk - Morning is the best time to walk. A 30 minutes’ walk in the morning can change your life! This is especially true if you are dealing with lifestyle-related diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, etc. A morning walk is easy on your joints and heart, and the fresh air in the mornin
