tokyo running days

A marathoner / newbie triathlete's training blog.

Saturday, February 11






Gosho hill training & yoga.

Slept too well, as a consequent of short of sleep these days. Woke up at 11:30am by the call from Keren to confirm the 12:00 starting time of today's training at Gosho. I got dressed super quickly then went out.

After 1 lap of warming up (waking up), we did Gosho hill training. It's more like fartlek than usual hill training. In a 3.34km loop of Gosho, you run fast at a 800m straight part and 2 hill parts and jog between each part. We did 3 laps of it. I could run faster than usual with Keren who is faster but not too fast than me.

Then we went to Michael's yoga lesson in Minami Azabu. Today there were more people than last week. Jay, Keren, Motozo, Bob, Bob's wife Miyoko-san and also Taro were there. It was funny to see all those stiff and awkward runners (including me) doing yoga. Understandably yoga is completely different from running, therefore we should do yoga to balance our body, perhaps. The only non-runner Miyoko-san was doing better than anyone else. Her posing is very natural and graceful.

◎Today's distance: 15.4km

Thanks for showing me your run, I did not realise that I had woken you up! I enjoyed it and would like to run it again. Gomen neh!

And I am not really faster than you, just have fresher legs than you do.

And now Rie is my enemy too! She wants to beat me in a half marathon. I can't let girls beat me! ;-)
