It surprised me when I was reading about the Triathletes; they say average age of a Triathlete who participates for an Ironman race is 40! Can you believe this!
What does it mean; if translated otherwise – it means – As one gets older it makes us more tough.
It’s all Mental nothing Physical about it!
So don’t allow the thought of aging set in your mind; feel younger and go for it!!
Whichever side of Forty you are; We all can do it; Go for it.

Time to enjoy is now!
I was wondering other day as to what are those ingredients; those need inclusion in a structure that I need to follow over a week, which will provide for entire gamut of fitness. Thought of taking out one hour on Sunday – getting up leisurely and going over the needs of the body, it flowed as follows:
Tranquility of mind
There may be more to it; but thought of penning down as it came by and keep adding to it.
Then came the question; how do I fit in all this in a weeks schedule. Do I take them day by day spreading over a week or do I need to fit in two in a day working it out alternate days or do I address two a week and make it a month long schedule.. Another thought popped up, which said buddy you need to workout twice a day!! Can I take out that kind of time; or does my game / sport need all this or can I omit anything from it.
No. of options started ticking, and kept wondering what could be the best combination or structure and getting further confused…..
But then I thought of taking head-on each item a day (irrespective of Saturday or Sunday or Holiday) and then decide about other questions over next weekend. And somehow it worked so well that I have been able to keep up to the schedule incorporating all these above aspect in fitness and keep ticking and keep kicking alive as they say these days!!
Of course other aspects connected to it do need to be taken cognizance of, such as Nutrition etc.., will talk about them some time later; as I believe every culture and place has its diet for its own environment, and one should not disturb it..
Friends, may I request your suggestions or comments, to add to your own workout
