Back on Track

Feels good to be back on track !! Last Sunday i attempted my first HM after 5 Months of break , in the The Wipro chennai Marathon. I just wanted to finish this race.. this is my 8th half marathon but this time i had to do lot of preparation to over come the achilles tendinitis issue which took me off the road/track/trail for last 5 months.
It was a easy run till the 16thKm after which i  was feeling the sme  pain but it didin't get bad. I was able to manage the same to complete it in a 2.50 Mins.

The finest thing that makes me to feel strong is that today again i am able to make a 9.9Km run in 1.23 mins. ( with 2 Flyover repeats)

So that makes me feel that i am " Back on Track".

Football Coaching Camp

It was very pleasant and nice to see the pachiappas harrington football academy's summer coaching camp. Every year this camp happens in the pachiappas college. This team is one of the best teams in the chennai football circuit. This coaching camp is for one month ( i guess) they dont charge a big money for it. It starts from small kids.
One best thing i like is the complete set of Kit bag that they provide with jersey, socks, shorts etc.

The organize it very well and every day it starts @ 6.00 Am. Kudos to the kids and parents who are showing interest in the football.
If you are looking for more detail leave a comment to answer the same.
