    Many runners don’t do sufficient strength and flexibility exercises to complement their running.There’s a rage to run in the country, but are we doing it right? You can’t possibly just lace up and run. There’s a whole deal of science and training that goes into this skill

India’s annual running calendar lists around 150 marathons and runs these days. Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bengaluru, Delhi, Pune have a growing runner community that attempt the 5K, 10K , half marathon and full marathon with great gusto. Weekday short runs are supplemented with weekend long distance group runs and rigorous exercising. But with running bringing in much bragging rights, and looking easy, are beginners jumping headlong into something that requires more thought and planning than imagined? Are they injuring themselves unnecessarily in a hurry to win the race?

Many, like Ashwin Bala of Runners For Life, who’s been running over six years now and is part of the organising team for three of Bengaluru’s marathons, believe it’s a problem of “too much, too soon”. “Either they increase their mileage beyond the 10 per cent rule [of not increasing one’s weekly mileage by more than 10 per cent over the previous week], or increase their pace without building an adequate aerobic base,” points out Mr. Bala.

Slow and steady:

Marathoner Ashok Nath, a seven time consecutive Boston Marathon qualifier and three time winner at the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon who coaches and mentors runners through his organisation Catalyst Sports, also believes runners just speed things up unnecessarily at the outset. He observes: “Initially there are some short term results but as the body can’t keep pace with the increasing levels of stress, aches pains injuries start to happen. Statistics reveal that annually 65 per cent of runners face some running related injury.” Our modern lifestyle has led to our bodies carrying stress, tension and, in all probability, excess weight, he says. “The human body is capable of great things but you must adhere to ‘gradual progression’ and not be dictated by what your neighbour, best friend, or the aunty down the street is capable of doing.” Another huge mistake beginners make is that they don’t get enough exercise. Sports physiotherapist and a marathoner and triathlete for the last five years, Dr. Gladson Johnson, who runs Attitude Prime, believes “exercise is medicine”. He says, “Many runners don’t do sufficient strength and flexibility exercises to complement their running. Hence injuries become a natural consequence of poor training.” He suggests that beginners should have a balanced proportion of running and strength and flexibility exercises first. “They must run a minimum of two days per week with three days of strength and flexibility exercises and two days of rest. Stick to one category for at least a year — do only 10km runs for a year and then take it forward.”

To coach or not?

The other huge debate is whether you need a coach to teach you how to run or you can figure things out with the help of a support group and peer sharing. Mr. Nath is very clear that while running may seem simple, it is actually a “skill sport”. “Successful distance running is all about energy management, and if you have the right running technique then you consume (or waste) less energy and are able to maintain your running form longer. The longer you are able to maintain form, the faster and further you are able to run,” he argues.

Pork curry recipe

01 Jun 2017

  The modern style of living has not taken away the beauty of our traditional life.  Arebashe gowdas are well known for traditional delicious spicy foods. Pork curry is the one among them. The main three festivals, Kailmuhurtha or Kailpodh, Kaveri Sankramana and Huthri or Puthri are still celebrated with grandeur. These festivals are incomplete without pork curry.

  Pork Curry traditionally using the black vinegar Kachampuli which has a high degree of pungency with medicinal values. Kachampuli is concocted from a sour fruit called Kodampuli. It is prepared in such a careful way, the vinegar can be kept at room temperature without losing its taste and flavour for years together, if kept in a dry cool place in air tight jars or bottles. The kachampuli we get commercially is often adulterated and made with synthetic vinegar mixed with tamarind extract.

  Pork Curry is served with Akki Rotti that made by mashing left over cooked rice, mixed with rice flour, roasting the rotti on flame without oil. The rottis made thus are soft, have a nice flavour and smokey taste. Apart from Akki Rotti, it can be server with Kadambuttu / Pundi, neer dosa that also go well with the dish. 


1. Pork - 1 Kg
2. Red Chilly Powder - 2 Teaspoon
3. Turmeric Powder - 1 Teaspoon
4. Salt - To taste
5. Coriander Seeds - 4 Teaspoon
6. Cumin seeds - 1 Teaspoon
7. Mustard seeds - 1 Teaspoon
8. Black Pepper corns - 2 Teaspoon
9. Madras Onions or shallots - 100Gms chopped
10. Green Chillies - 10-12 chopped
11. Ginger - 2 inch piece
12 Garlic - 10 Cloves
13. Coriander leaves - A handful chopped
14. Refined Oil - 2-3 Teaspoon
15. Kachampuli - 1 Teaspoon


Clean, wash and cut the pork into small pieces. 
Apply red chilli powder, salt and Turmeric powder. Keep aside.
Dry roast the spices 5-8 one by one, till they all turn dark roasted but not burnt. Dry grind in a mill to a fine powder.
Coarsely grind or pound ingredients 9-13 to a rough chutney.
Heat 2 Teaspoon oil in a thick bottomed vessel. I prefer earthen pot for that extra flavour.
Fry handful of curry leaves(Optional) followed by the ground chutney. Fry till brown. Add the marinated pork, little water, cover and cook till the pork is almost done.
Now add the masala powder and Kachampuli. Check for salt. Cook further on slow fire for 5-10 mins.
Serve hot with akki rotti, pundi, rice rotti or neer dosa. 

Note: If you don't get Kachampuli, you may substitute that with a spoonful of brown vinegar and a spoon of tamarind extract.
