She takes us through her running journey, from running marathons in New York, Berlin, and Ladakh, Pushpa has done what most youngsters are afraid to do.
Pushpa takes us through the process of preparation before a marathon and tells us about half marathons, full marathons, and ultra-marathons. She is now an Ultra Marathon runner and she remarks that running makes her complete, and it makes her feel alive. She tells us about the rigorous training she has to go through, from running 10-20 kilometers each day, to speed training, and heels training.
Pushpa is also a trained medical nutritionist and she answers all our basic queries on food and diets. She explains that a medical nutritionist is someone that prescribes diets looking at the medical condition of that person. She tells us about functional foods that are added to our diets like methi, chia seeds, turmeric, ginger, that supplement our regular diet. She is also trained in weight loss management nutrition and keto training.
