RUNNING/RESTING IN JAPAN

Standard

I have decided to take a break until December 25 th. That is a Sunday and just the day to start again with a good long hard run in Tokyo.

This week has been the first week of my resting.

MONDAY : A good half an hour in the gym in the morning followed by a steady 15 km or so with Tamami in the afternoon.

TUESDAY: Another gym session in the morning and a short jog in the afternoon.

imageWEDNESDAY : Good session in the morning. In the afternoon I ran a steady 5 km and then did 6 hill ‘ sprints’. Longest about 47 seconds. Legs felt a little strange at the end. Felt good running a little faster.

THURSDAY : Longer gym session in the morning and an easy 22 minute run with Mi Chan in the afternoon. I am certainly resting.

FRIDAY : Ran a bit faster today but only for 20 minutes. Weight is 68.3 Kgms….must be extra muscle. 😉

SATURDAY : planned to meet a group called The Hill Tribe and run some hills….but got there an hour early by mistake so ran for about 40 minutes which did include 4 quite testing hills. A good outing.

SUNDAY : Acted as an official for a friend who was putting on a Half Marathon race some where out in the middle of nowhere. ran with last place finisher to the end. All that standing around really tested my legs. Must prefer running than being an official.

OK that was my rest week….this week I will also take it easy.
