Few days ago, Kajal Aggarwal was thrilled after completing the Mumbai Marathon; however, not many know that it was tough for her, especially towards the end, since she is asthmatic. Besides, the actress took part in the marathon to raise funds for Think Peace, an NGO that she works closely with to help school kids from tribal villages in Araku valley.
In a recent interview, the actress revealed the circumstances under which she prepared and ran the marathon. This year, apparently, she couldn’t dedicate as much time to prepare for the marathon.
Despite all that, the actress was able to finish the marathon at a faster pace. “It was a gradual improvement. Getting past the first seven kilometres is comfortable, but the last three are a stretch,” she said, adding that for the final stretch she listened to music to keep her focus intact.
Surprisingly, Kajal confessed that she is asthmatic, and it was essential for her to control her breathing. “It is like meditation. When I feel I can’t take it anymore, I concentrate on the way I inhale and exhale, which is meant to be done in a ration of 3:2 counts. However, I find that tough since I’m asthmatic, so I keep it as natural as is possible,” Kajal said.
