Reclaim Your Life Checklist

Dear JJite,

Starting regular workouts from tomorrow will take a little bit of planning ahead to get yourself organized.


Here’s a checklist to help you set the ball rolling: 

1. Identify a route/place to run, e.g a small place inside your house of 25 mts, around your house of about 300 meters, within your locality may be of 2kms etc. which does not violate any rules set by community/ apartment/govt. authorities.

2. Based on that decide which workout you can complete, i.e. Usual/Modified/Restricted

3. Hydrate yourself well starting today

4. Set aside your workout clothes, gear and mask tonight just as you would do earlier

5. Hit the bed early and get enough sleep so that you are fresh for workouts tomorrow morning

6. Set up an alarm before you hit the bed today

7. Mental Preparation: Think about June 13th as a goal to complete a 10K with satisfaction. Bring your awareness to Reclaim Your Old Life. Get out of the lethargy and push yourself out of your comfort zone. 

8. The first week of this routine is going to be tough, but once you cross it, you will get a hold of yourself!


So let’s restart some serious training for the TWTK Program!

Monday Motivation!

Empathy is the starting point for creating a community and taking action. It's the impetus for creating change - Max Carver

The Durga Pooja season is here & the celebrations might be muted a bit due to the pandemic. But our Kolkata JJites came up with a safe, unique way for festivities, with Covid appropriate behavior in place.

They planned their runs along the famous pandals across Kolkata. The lavishly decorated pandals, holding clay and bamboo effigies of the goddess, draped in brocaded silk. Cheers to their planning and execution.

Kudos to all the Kolkata JJites for including pandal hopping to bring in some cheer and hope amidst the pandemic!

As we progress ahead this season, we see that despite the workouts getting tougher, our bodies have adapted and we are enjoying every workout. This showcases the determination, hard work, and willpower*- each one of us exhibit, come rain or shine.

Have a fulfilling week ahead!

Happy running!

JJs New Locations

Health and fitness has never been this important for a city which has constantly been on the move. Demanding work days, harmful work postures and increased commute hours has not helped either. Notwithstanding, almost 600 JJs take the opportunity to energise themselves between 5-7 AM in the morning to deal with these pressures. Obviously, the news has spread, more and more Bengalureans are asking JJs if they could join this fitness movement.

Launching 3 new locations (click here for details) :- 

  • Malleswaram - led by DJ - champion of building teams of passionate runners
  • Electronic City - led by Pratik and Madhavi - a passionate running couple who drove for years from EC to Jayanagar just for running
  • Kengeri Upanagara - led by Geo - rocket of JJs@Vijayanagar

If you have friends in these areas, refer them to respective Location Leads.

Wishing runners from the new locations a warm welcome! Look forward to see you all in upcoming combined runs!

Into Thin Air - Taher Conquers the Everest Ultra

?Jayanagar Jaguars is proud to celebrate the incredible feat of Taher Merchant who successfully completed the Tenzing Hillary Everest Extreme Ultra Marathon 2018 (60km) held on May 29th. Taher sets the record as the First Indian Male Finisher of the Everest Ultra!

The Everest Ultra is considered as the highest Ultramarathon event in the world. This diamond jubilee event commemorated the 65th Anniversary of the 1st successful ascent of Mt Everest by Hillary & Tenzing. Starting at the Everest Base camp (5356 metres), the course covers five high Himayalan passes, taking the runners through some of the tallest Glaciers, and includes the highest uphill run portion in the world. 

Taher finished this rugged 60km high altitude course in 19:15:10, but that is not the whole story… What makes the feat truly inspiring is the intense amount of training that went into it. He trained across a variety of terrains such as multiple Nandi Hills runs, to prepare himself for the ordeal ahead, clocking a staggering 1100+ Kms over the last 10 weeks!

We congratulate Taher for his awesome achievement and we hope he continues his running adventures, inspiring all of us!

Now that you are all inspired by his feat, it’s time to think about your next challenge. Brace yourself for the next season and choose the programme for the race you want to conquer!

Happy Running!

Taher on top of the world

Even though Taher Merchant has put the highest running mileage amongst JJs in last couple of months, he was not to be seen. Where was he?

Taher's training starts when it's pitch dark - even the dogs are sleeping at that time. He has run Nandi Hills up and down... and then some more. For what? 

Past few months, Taher has been training for Extreme Ultra - a 60KMs Ultra run which starts from Everest Base Camp and ends at Namche - that is after a 6-day trek to reach Everest Base Camp. Moreover, it does not help that the air is thin and temperature varies significantly during the day.  

Jayanagar Jaguars wishes him all the best for the run!

Shoes

Here are Coach's tips on favourite topic of Shoe selection. 

No specific brand is better than other - all are competitive so some model of one brand might be better than other brand. 

Shoe selection is an art rather than science and can be perfected after trial and error. So experiment with cheaper options first e.g. Bata's Running shoes as bit cheaper. (running not walking or general purpose).

You need to look for following things in shoes :-

  1. Must be light (this again in relative term) 
  2. Must be flexible at sole - Try bending the sole in direction of foot movement and it should bend easily 
  3. Must have material that will allow feet to breath - a mesh on top. 
  4. Your feet should feel comfortable - once you tie up the laces try wiggling your toes within shoe. They should move easily.
  5. Runners with broader feet, try brands which can provide you broader shoes e.g. Asics has 2E type so a number 7 in 2E is broader than 7 in normal category. 
  6. Should be neither too tight nor too loose.

Check all the above parameters and you should be fine
