My First 5k

My 5k trail by Runtastic.
My 5k trail by Runtastic.

I have recently started exercising and gyming. I wanted to take part in 5k sometime and then i read about Automattics’s Worldwide WP 5k. I was not sure if i was prepared for it yet. But then i decided to give it a try today. It was a walk+jog. It was fun!

With a pair of sneakers all laced up,
An upbeat playlist to keep the spirits up,
Path lined up with lush green trees,
And lit up by the morning sun,
I was unsure if i could complete the run,
I walked and jogged and huffed and puffed,
Halfway through it got a bit easier,
The goal was getting a lot nearer,
All i could think of was WATER!
Legs ached but just a few steps more..
And i successfully completed my first 5k!

Yay!! I completed my first 5k. It is dedicated to Automattics’s Worldwide WP 5k. I took me less than an hour. I know its not great, but with just 15 days of practice, it’s good enough for me. Looking forward to improve the time further and take part in more 5ks!

Stay Healthy! Stay Fit!

Anything is possible for a superman with sneakers and headphones! 😀

Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill | Authentic Indian Thali

Today’s Daily Prompt asks “If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?”

I am a foodie ! I specially love eating home cooked food (made by Mom). My mom makes all my favorite delicacies when i visit home in holidays. So being at home, even if someone gives me these magic pills for free, i will not have them but rather give them to the poor. I will not be able to resist the delicious dishes like matar paneer, dosa, uttapam, sandwiches, breadrolls, chola bhatura oh this list can go on and on and make a 1000 work post 😀

However i would like to keep a lot of these magic pills as spare when i am away from home. These will come to my rescue when i have no option but to eat the sometimes-not-so-good mess food. It will be so easy. No need to sacrifice and eat something i don’t like. No need to go out during exams. No need to order online. But how long can one relish these tasteless pills. I am sure i will be bored in a few days and rush somewhere to enjoy a full meal. I am sure the tastebuds will disintegrate if we keep taking these pills for long 😀 I don’t think these pills can give the awesome feeling of satisfaction of a stomach-full meal.

So in my opinion these pills will be best for worst cases. Instead of starving, one can have these pills. These can be useful for people who get lost in deserts or oceans. These can also solve the problem of malnutrition of some of the under-developed and developing countries. They can be beneficial for the soldiers on the borders.

Here are a few pics of the authentic “Indian Thali” !
