tokyo running days

A marathoner / newbie triathlete's training blog.

5000m TT. No PB (of course!)

I had no running Monday and Tuesday, and Wednesday is the day of Namban track workouot, 5000m time trial. I was secretly expecting another sub 20 minutes run stupidly, but after having done 2km, I realised that it was way too ambitious. At the point of 3km, I gave up trying hard, then finished at 20m36s. Well, next time.

BTW, during the run, I felt dizzy, if I lost concentration, I might have cllapsed. I am a bit anxious about it now since I had the same feeling during the marathon race between 25k to 35k. It didn't slow me down, but wasn't comfortable either. Is this a sort of anemia? (I hope not..)

Information wanted.

◎Today's distance: 10km or so...(jog and 5000mTT)

Mika, great to see your bilingual post. I guess that is extra work, but very considerate for us poor Japanese illiterates. I also blogged about us running that time trial together -- well we were together until you ran out of beans anyway.

I think you had better be a bit careful about the dizziness. Perhaps get a blood test to check your iron levels. It would be better to make sure rather than just start taking iron tablets on speculation. If it is low iron, then you will know what to do. But if your iron levels are fine, then you (or the doctor) will need to think about other possible causes and keep a close watch on what happens.

Thank you Steve. I think I will take blood test. I hope this is nothing.
