tokyo running days

A marathoner / newbie triathlete's training blog.

Sunday, April 30






1.5km non stop swim.

No running, bike and swim on Thursday and Friday due to work.

Saturday, afterwork, I went to Tokyo Taiikukan to swim. I focused on "distance" this time. My last longest dinstance was 1000m at a 25m pool, but when I did it, I felt I could swim more. So I dare to set 1500m for today's goal distance.

First, I felt awkward in the water, but after passing 1000m, I felt more comfortable and completed 1500m without struggling. I timed it this time and it was a bit less than 40min. This brought me some relief to my fear that I might have to pull out at the swimming part at the race.

◎Today's distance: 2.5km swim

Well done! The more you swim the more comfortable you will become. And I plan to lead us on a long "open water" ocean swim to practice wetsuit swimming before the IM, probably on the 20th or 21st.

Thank you, Keren. I am looking forward to my first-in-my-lifetime ocean swim!
