Nutrition Chia seeds, roasted pumpkin nuts, coffee, peanut butter and oats is my staple diet. Rest is the typical north Indian food aka Dal and roti.

I started proper training after I got my hands on Jack Daniels Running Formula 3rd edition in August 2019 when I was recovering from a tibial stress fracture due to haphazard training. Started with the white plan of run/walk, then progressed to the red plan, then the blue plan. Then began the 5k (40-50miles) training plan. Currently finishing up phase III aka the interval phase. I'm at 60 miles/week so I'd be doing phase IV of the (60-70miles) plan. Had been training on a vDOT of 56 which I recently upgraded to 59 based on the recent 2-mile race.
