We asked you, Dear Readers, to tell us how you spent the lockdown and share your best memories with us.
Abhijit Chandrakant Bangale, 43, from Aurangabad, Maharashtra, shares his inspiring story:
I am a cyclist. Since it was not possible to cycle during the lockdown, I chose to walk, do push ups, skipping and yoga.
Right from Day One, I divided my walking into two sessions -- morning and evening.
I found a farm approximately 7 acres large, close to my residence.
The inbuilt fitness app on my Vivo mobile helped me count my steps and km every day.
I soon realised how different cycling and walking are.
Walking, for example requires more patience than cycling.
I started with 5 km in the morning and 7 km in the evening.
Gradually I increased the distance and achieved an average of 16 km per day. On some days I walked 24 km.
I aim to clock in 100 km every week which I am gradually increasing.
In April I walked approx 320 km, followed by 325 km.
Walking helped me in following ways:
1. Reduce weight
2. Kept me engaged for 7/8 hours a day
3. Act as cross training for my future cycling sessions
4. Build immunity
