Plan for my second week of training for the Tokyo Marathon scheduled for Feb. 22nd, was to have solid runs Wednesday and Thursday.However yesterday it was 33 degrees and today a little better at 27 degrees. I do not handle the heat very well.
Also I still have pains in my knees.
My plans flew out the window.
Tamami wanted to run 24 Km this morning but as it was so humid I decided to go to the Gym instead. However on reflection I decided that I just couldn’t face yet another hour plus pushing weights,talking to no one and listening to the latest pop music blaring out at a zillion decibels. So I went running after all.
Ran out for about 6 Km and met Tamami and ran the last 6 Km home with her. She ran well but was struggling in the heat. I on the other hand felt quite good.So that was a plus. True I Did not like the heat much and my knee hurt,but apart from that,all was good.
BLOOD PRESSURE : 115/ 82…. This is the best it has been for yonks.
HEART RATE : 45. Normal enough.
WEIGHT: 65.6 Kgm. Acceptable.
It has been a while since I have run twice in a day.
Weather was a bit better but still humid. Knee still sore.
Only ran for 30 minutes but at a fair pace ( for me!). I have been wearing staps on my sore knees lately but did not wear them on my second run. I got through the run ok. pain was there but not too bad. Not enough to cause me to limp anyway.
