Week 1 – Bodyweight Training

I was looking for a type of workout that I could squeeze in almost everyday (at anytime during the day). So I started with a customized 12-Week training Plan that is tailored to my personal fitness level and something that would supplement my running.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Despite of having a busy schedule at work and 30-40 kms of weekly running mileage – I was able to find “sometime” for these quick 15-30 minutes’ sessions.


Here’s what I did last week. 💪🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Workout 1

  • 110 Jumping Jacks
  • 90 Push-Ups
  • 90 Squats
  • 90 Leg Raises

Workout 2

  • 90s Low Plank
  • 150 Mountain Climbers
  • 90s High Plank⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Workout 3

  • 200 Jumping Jacks
  • 60 Push-Ups

  • 180s Wall Sit
  • 40 Up Downs⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Workout 4

  • 120 Rockstars
  • 60 4-Count Burpees⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Workout 5 😓

  • 45 High Plank Knee-to-Elbow
  • 90 Walking Lunges
  • 30 Flat Out Burpees
  • 150 Punches
  • 60 Sit-Ups
  • 30 Push-Ups
  • 45s Low Plank
  • 45s Low Side Plank Left
  • 45s Low Side Plank Right

*It is very important to warm-up before each workout and followed by stretching.*

Happy Workout. Happy Running. 😀#RunwithRaah


Training Plan for Tata Mumbai Marathon 18′

Here’s the journey on how I got from Goal setting to go-getting in the 15th edition of Tata Mumbai Marathon.

Goal Setting

Improve on my previous best Marathon timing of 03:53:06
Go for a sub 03:40:00 Marathon (missed this one by 3 minutes and 43 seconds)

Training Tracker

Completed 73 out of 76 planned sessions and skipped 3 Long Distance runs.

Training Plan – TMM 2018

Race Day Results

42.2 kms in 03:43:43


Although I missed a Goal this year, I achieved another.
For me it’s not just about achieving goals – that is something I can always try again and again. More important to me is – to be better than I was yesterday.

A failed goal is success in progress.

It feels good when you Run Hard and Finish Strong. I finished the Tata Mumbai Marathon 18′ in 03:43:43 beating my previous best by 9 minutes and 23 seconds.

Now it’s time to recover, celebrate and plan for the next year.
