I ran the same route that I ran on July 8 th.That being from my Tokyo apartment through one of the secret forests in Shinagawa ( known to very few ).
Even though I ran for slightly less than one hour I found it reasonably hard. My touring around Scotland has taken a lot out of me. The temperature was 30 degrees ( PC said it felt like 35).
My time was 17 seconds slower than my July run ( all those Fish n chip meals!!). It was 28 degrees in July and humidity was 62% whilst yesterday the humidity was 70%.
My weight has ballooned from 66.2 Kgm when I left to Japan to 66.9kgm yesterday. Something I will really work at from now on.
Decided to do 500 stomach crunches a day plus 100 push ups. However did not do that well yesterday with 300 crunches and 85 push ups.
Certainly it will not be easy. The Battle begins.
