Keeping up the momentum

On the back of the 2nd successful 10K outing and in line with my goal to run the 2018 edition of the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon(SCMM), I’ve created a plan to run in one to three events every month. For June and July these are the events that I’ve spotted and have committed to participate in:

Event : Ananda Yana – The Journey of Joy 2017
Time : Sun, 4 Jun 2017 6:00AM – 10:00AM
Location: Sneha Care Home – Sarjapur Road , East Bangalore

Time : Sun, 11 Jun 2017, 7:00 AM
Location: Inorbit Mall, No. 75,8th Road, EPIP Area, Whitefield KIADB Export Promotion Industrial Area, Whitefield Bengaluru, Karnataka 560066

Event : ‘Beat The Heat’ Whitefield Timed Run
Time : Sun, 25 Jun 2017, 7:00 AM
Location: Decathlon Whitefield, Bengaluru
Event : 3rd Sunday Womens Run – For both Men & Women Share
Time : 16-Jul-2017
Location: Decathlon Sarjapur, Bengaluru

In August, this is one event that I would like to run in based on how I recover from the June and July races.
Event : 3rd Sunday Womens Run – For both Men & Women Share
Time : 20-Aug-2017
Location: Decathlon Sarjapur, Bengaluru

The intention is clearly identify goals for each race and achieve them without over training and avoiding injuries. With proper training and nutrition plan for these events leading up to SCMM, the SCMM run itself should be relatively easier. The longest distance I’ve run till date is also 10K which will also need to be gradually increased to get acquainted with the 21K distance for the half-marathon event that I intend to participate in SCMM.

The training plan and nutrition plan creation is still in progress. I intend to connect with professionals to get these in order. In case I’m unable to get these resources on time, I will then scour the net and will have to create a custom plan which anyway is the 1st stop to create a draft plan.
