Routine morning ride.
What you see here are negotiators discussing the minimum amounts of pushups and shuttle runs required to qualify for the mid ride Tea.

I'm a little conflicted.
I like swinging the 40kg bell more than my 16kg.

I do try to accelerate the 40kg as hard as I can. I check my form. I started off with singles and triples a few weeks ago, and now I'm up to 5 sets of 10. I usually complete them in 15 minutes.
Should I stick to the heavy swings, or go to the 16kgs for high reps?
The 16 feels like a toy now.

Hollow? Yup. It's how they're able to maintain the same size with different weights.

My first race. Never thought I'd do one. But I did.
Slightly smaller than a full sprint triathlon. 250meters swim, 20k bike and 4k run.
The swim nearly wiped me out. Recovered on the bike and plodded through the run.
Next time I'm going to do some real training instead of just messing around on the bike.
Also, I need a road bike.
Got 15th overall.

Thanks guys. I could have done better if only I'd trained the swimming and running. The only place I felt comfortable, was on the bike.
There's going to be another sprint event soon, and an Olympic distance Tri next year. Which means I need to start training in earnest right away.
Learnt quite a bit about myself. Made lots of friends.
I'm glad our city is beginning to take an interest in sports. Last year if someone had said that there'd be a triathlon in Cochin, I'd have laughed in their faces.
Now we've got time trials, Tris, crits, all lined up. And I can actually justify getting myself a road bike for them. The hybrid just doesn't cut it.

Someone is messing with my mind. Inception style dreams. Woke up thrice consecutively into one dream after the other. Was never this glad to hear the alarm go off. Weird stuff. Kind of enjoyed it though.

The resistant starch is working, I guess.
This time I didn't even use the home made magnesium supplements.

Spent the whole day yesterday biking, trekking, scrambling up rocks and swimming in the hills of Malappuram, yesterday. Recovering today. The 200km one way trip by car and the hassle of taking time off work was all totally worth it. And I didn't even fall this time! :P

Got myself a Fuji Sportif 2.1 last week. It's been raining non stop, and I've been riding non stop, making new friends all over town.

Yeah, but it's a Ferrari with black flames on it's side. The driver should be able to drive with his eyes closed, and still be cool.

Muscle cramps
Last week during game one of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs, the air conditioning system in the AT&T Center wasn't working properly. As a result, the normally cool arena was a sweltering 90 degrees fahrenheit (~30 degrees Celsius). Miami's LeBron James suffered a ...

As a former Navy SAR swimmer, I can testify that it is nothing but fatigue when that happens to someone that is in shape.
Is a good article but the news is nothing new to a lot of people.

Relax they are not actual rocks but just comfy pillows. Inspired by nature, interpretation of the comfortable life with STONE.

Awful service, atrocious food. This place used to have good food . Now it's just over salted and smothered in synthetic sauce. The fish was bitter, the beef was tough. The vegetables old and fibrous. Never coming back here again.

I couldn't find a way to rate just their restaurant, which is what I really wanted to do. I normally visit them for their buffet lunches and dinners, which are usually great, but this morning's breakfast was disappointing. As always, the food was really nice, the price extremely reasonable, but they seemed to be stingy with what was brought out the kitchen. Most of the diners were standing around waiting for the food to be brought out. Totally killed the experience. Won't be going back there for a long time. Even if I love the food and the prices.

Great place to eat north Indian cuisine on a budget. And if the menu confuses you, all you have to do is ask the owner for suggestions and he'll make choosing easy for you.

The reason I took the effort of rating this hotel is, the negative. The beautiful surroundings don't compensate for this hotel's unhelpful staff or absolutely atrocious food. Never staying at a Taj again.

It looks like a hole in the wall, but looks can be deceiving. This tiny shop run by a Bohra family makes the most delicious mutton curry in all of Cochin. The dishes are obviously made with great attention to flavor. The gravies are thick and rich, and will fill you up instantly, while making you crave for more. All this with friendly service and a truly affordable prices. I love this place.

The chocolate cake and banana pie are to die for. The Cheese omelette is decent. The press coffee is famous for all the right reasons. Great place to just sit down and do nothing.
