Mumbai Marathon - I am running

I have registered myself in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon.

Just got a confirmation mail from them: "Thank you Tarun Chandel, we have received your entry for the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2009." This is going to be great. Though it is going to help me fulfill my aim of being healthy and fit, yet I feel this is the toughest challenge that I am going to face in my whole life. The full marathon is more than 42 Kms, this is going to test me to the extremes.

I am going to start my preparations from tomorrow morning. I will keep a log of Marathon preparations on this blog. I am very excited.

dude, directly running for the full marathon? Try with half marathon this year and then graduate to the full one. I had a real hard time preparing even for the dream run coz I was not consistent. U need atleast 6-8 months to prepare for the full one. Since you have started well in advance I am sure u will be able to manage it. Thx for the post.. I didn't know that they have started registration so soon and the last date is 30 aug !

I'll run half marathon this time.. but dream run is more fun.

Hi Nishit

I am sure this is going to be really though but still I want to give it a try.

Do you have a good running base? I hope so!! You can complete the marathon without too much trouble if you train hard. Monitoring your heart rate will work wonders...otherwise it's hard to gauge if you are running too hard...hitting the wall is NOT FUN!

I recommend this plan for training...starts 16 weeks before the race.

I will also be running the 2009 Mumbai Marathon (I am coming all the way from Canada!). Looking forward to seeing India!

Good luck with your training.

Hey Tarun,

I'll be there with you. My first ever marathon and I too decided to go the whole hog.

Sure its going to be tough, but then, I'm sure I'll pull it throught. . .
