Happiness as I jog ( Notes and inspirations from Jogging )
And then, when you stretch a little bit, you realize how much away you are from reality. After jogging for 80 minutes ,the back becomes stiff. The ankle starts paining .Its nowhere close to how you felt during the first thirty minutes . Well the first ten minutes are spent on killing the slack . Then you start adjusting to track and build a rhythm . Post thirty minutes you decide to pace yourself up a little bit. Now you can look up. For the first time running feels good.
Half Marathon ,New Delhi,India
I usually end up running sixty odd minutes every time I aim to run, but today I decided to pace myself up. A spirit of old zen master entered my body and was doing all the running. Or so as I was made to believe as I listened to Led Zep . Like a man possessed . The next Haile Gebrselassie !! I decided to ignore pain and smile as I jogged . It was twenty to five in evening when I started .And now, slowly the evening gave way to night .So, the mosquitoes came and said hello. What do they know about pain ? They only cause pain .I ignored them as well. I ran faster. And they followed me farther . And we ran together . It was a cosmic moment . The last ten minutes of jogging were like war footing. After ninety minutes or so all my human emotions came alive. You knew from their reputation, its best to establish a long term relation with these guys . Like a bad ass customer they won’t leave you . The best performing firms started by keeping their early adopters happy Running has been a great stress buster this year. I decided to run a bit this year. This sane realization came just in time . Before the year tried to bust me . Now its a matter of day on day . I sleep early and well .
Apologies if you had to go through all of the above . Hope it was n’t as difficult as it was to run . The whole purpose of this post was to wish everyone wonderful Diwali ( but the writing just happened as I sat with thoughts )
Hope this year has been incredibly satisfying , enriching and alive ….
