Name – Avinash Kumar

Distance: 21 KM

Target Time – 2:00 Hours 

Avinash Kumar, a young runner at 40, has 6 full marathons (PB: 4:12) and countless half marathons (PB: 1:49) under his shoe.

Running for him began a little over 3 years ago in Oct 2013 on the insistence of couple of his friends at the 11K run organized by IIM Indore. Though he successfully completed the run, it was not a comfortable run for him. He knew he could do better. This led to introspection and a resolve to improve running. Within 2 months of this, he ran his first half at Pune. Which was then followed by many half and full marathons across India (namely, Mumbai 2015, 2016, 2017, Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Goa, Hyderabad, Surat).

The mantra behind good running, as per Avinash, is LLM (Legs, Lungs and Mind). With strong legs, large lungs and a stubborn mind no distance is invincible for a runner. He has designed his fitness regime around this mantra. His 2 to 3 short runs (6 to 8 kms) mid week are aimed at increasing the lung capacity and making the legs quicker while 1 long run on the weekend is aimed at strengthening the legs and the mind. On the remaining days he does cross training or weight training. He targets to run at least 100 kms in a month.

Avinash will be pacing for 2:00 Hr finish in the 21k category in this year’s Jio Indore Marathon. His strategy will be to run mildly positive splits, starting with the pace of 6:00, gradually reducing it to 5:35 and then taking it easy towards the end to finish with the pace of 5:40. Anybody who is capable of running 4 to 5k at a stretch with the pace of 5:30 should join this bus. Distance wise splits would be 5k in 0:29, 10k in 0:56, 15k in 1:24, 20k in 1:53 and 21.1 in 1:59:30. There will be water/walk breaks of 10 – 15 secs every 4 kms.

Avinash is co-founder of Ideavate Solutions, a software development company in Indore.
