Day #-89 Socialisation

The 20-minute challenge

Tonight I am going to socialize with other runners. Running Room , a sports store that specialises in running equipment, is organising a 20-minute challenge. It’s for everyone – those who run to exercise and those (like me) who are preparing for a race. I am told that these 20-minute thingies get pretty crowded. At the end, everyone gets a free hat for participating.. hehe. 😉

I think I can comfortably do the 20 minute thing. I’ve been running for 60-90 minutes for the last two days consecutively and today might be a pleasant break. I still haven’t decided on the shoes btw. Hopefully I’ll be able to finalise by this weekend and return the pair that I like less.

  1. So how does this work? You guys all run for twenty minutes and then socialize later?

    • We gathered, we chatted, we ran. Then I went home. hehe

    Do they let you try out shoes and return ones you don’t like?
    How does that work?
    They don’t sell the returned shoes as new do they?

    • Hi Swapnil, As long as one treats the shoe delicately and doesn’t overuse it, it can be returned within 2 weeks. This means running on indoor tracks, wearing proper socks and cleaning random dust particles. It is assumed that when one buys new shoes, there is a chance that someone has tried them. And that’s fine to me – selecting the right shoe is not straightforward.

        You can run 90 minutes right at the beginning? I’m truly impressed. I do 30 minutes on the treadmill at 2mph. And I’m so relieved that I’m not short of breath! I hope to reach one hour soon. I wish you the best. I’m really pulling for you.

        • Thanks Claudia! Now I can do much more, it is amazing how the body picks up so fast!! Only a week to go!
