Master batsman Sachin Tendulkar on Monday said said there was no question of relaxing after breaking retired West Indian Brian Lara's world record of 11,953 Test runs.

"I have to concentrate and try and play well. Record etc... It's okay. If you play well, and if it (record) happens, it's good", the ace batsman who is just 76 runs short of that milestone, told reporters.

Tendulkar said his focus was on playing well, and it's not as if he has to make 76 runs and after that he can relax.

He said the team had set certain targets in the four Test series against Ricky Ponting's side, and focus of every player is to achieve that target.

Tendulkar missed the Irani Trophy last week. An elbow injury during the Third Test against Sri Lanka last month had forced him out of the subsequent one-day series.

Tendulkar said he was happy with the rehabilitation and had been working with the trainer.

"Last two-three weeks have been quite good," Tendulkar said, adding, he was pleased with the progress.
