Today I had to go through a lot of traffic the city has come to a standstill as the holidays have begun for Diwali Pooja, the whole city is on the streets in the late evenings. The festivities are in full flow as shopkeepers are on the street selling their wears. It was like walking through a meal as people danced on the street and firecrackers were burst on the street.
I had to stop often as the traffic would pile up and clog the Lanka street every ten meters or so and it was very tiresome. But as I reached the campus area my walking speed picked up and I clocked another 8.5 km today as well this included the half an hour walk I do in the morning between 11:00 am to 12:00 noon.
I kept it at my pace and made sure I did sweat a lot otherwise there is no fat burn. I managed to stop at my customary juice center to hydrate myself but the shop was closed so no fruit juice here. I had to keep going till I finally found a shop indie the campus and gulped three glasses of orange juice. Juice breaks are important since I walk about one hour forty minutes in the evening couple of breaks help in catching a breath and can increase the distance covered.
Today I took a hitchhike to the main gate of BHU on the way out, two students passed me on their scooters and asked me to hop on to the gate. I duly obliged I would have done another two kilometers otherwise.
The way back was on an electric rickshaw as again I had to grind through city traffic and bicycles, they’re where pedestrians everywhere and the rickshaw. found it difficult at times to navigate the traffic.
