tcs marathon 2015







How was your marathon Saqib?
It was very tough but I am happy that it is over now.

What was so tough about it?
I prepared very well for the marathon, but during the actual run, my body started aching after 25 km. My legs started to heart my feet were sore, my body just did not wanted to proceed with running.

Any reason why that happened?
I think I trained mostly in the evenings and the actual run was very early in the morning, that had some affect, the weather was cold and rainy and that could also have some affect.

How long did you train for it?
I trained about 6 months seriously, for some it may be too short for others to long.

Why did you run this marathon?
It was always my dream to run the full marathon, I always had a big admiration for the people who could run the marathon.

What was the most difficult part in preparation for the marathon?
The most difficult part were the long runs, sometimes I was running for 3.5 hours, running so long is very boring.

What is the next goal?
I want to run the 10km under 40 minutes?

Good luck with that!
