|The hotel pool at 5:00 AM|
I was fighting jet lag for most of the week so getting up at 5:00 wasn't a big problem. The run seemed to anchor the day, getting me off on the right foot (pardon the pun) and helping me adjust. The only problem was that the steady diet of authentic Indian food was giving me a slightly upset stomach that made running slightly uncomfortable but wasn't enough to stop me.
|Another kind of running|
I'd love to find a way to run outside on future trips to Bangalore but I'm just not sure that's going to be possible. Running on the roads would be insanely risky, plus the air pollution from the traffic would make it difficult to have a good run. Maybe I'll take some trips out of town next time and explore some areas where an outside run would be feasible. But for now, it's the hotel gym and Bollywood movies.
