Goals for 2008

I make four goals for this year; No. 1= 700 km in 7 days, it should come out in Athens 7-Days International Race in March. No. 2 = 200 km in 24 hr on track/road, should come out either on the first day of any multiday race or from a 24 hr race in Australia. No. 3 = 300 km in 48 hours from treadmill , and No. 4 = 666km+ in Colac 6-days, Australia.

After 102 mile treadmill run, I have done one more 24hr treadmill  run with 151.5 km in Pune sponsored by Vodafone. It was not for a record but just as a show of 24 hr running. I took it easy as it was only a promotional activity in support of Vodafone Pune International Marathon. Run started at 12.10 pm, with direct sun till 5 pm and again from 8am to finish, in front of SGS Mall. It was a wonderful and memorable event, also becuase Pune is my childhood city and I was visiting there after 33 years.

Today’s goal=running 11pm to 12pm.

    Looks like some very achievable goals Arun. Break each race down into small managable chunks and GO FOR IT.

    Hi! I’m from Pune and was hugely impressed by your accomplishments…i’m a pretty avid runner myself and have participated in the Pune Half Marathon for the last three years plus done 2 full marathons in the standard chartered mumbai marathon…i would really appreciate your guidance as to how i could go about establishing a similar record for distance running on the treadmill in 24 hrs under the womens category…
    Regards…best wishes for all your goals in 2008

    Dear Bryon,
    Thanks for your time on my blog. I missed your message to read it on time. Now 2008 has almost gone and I have only 153km/24hr under my belt. Sometimes many things go beyond our control, but I dont worry. I will try and try it again until I finally get it.
