tokyo running days

A marathoner / newbie triathlete's training blog.

Tuesday, October 10

Tokyo, Tokyo and London.

In these couple of days, it turned out that I am going to run three marathons in this 2006-2007 season. Tokyo Women's in November, Tokyo Marathon in February and London Marathon in April.

Last winter, when I did three marathons in a row (tokyo, osaka and nagoya), my whole 6 months were dominated by marathon training and I swore myself that I would never ever do three marathons in one winter. It's just too boring way to spend whole winter...

BUT, each of the three races this time seems to have a good enough reason to do.

- Tokyo Women's: My main race. Great honour to run with other elite woman marathoners. Got to do it.

- Tokyo Marathon: Won the lottery, and it's the very first one. Got to do it.

- London Marathon: The last chance to stay in Geraldine's place in Kensington. Undeniable. Got to do it.

As a result, I will be spending whole 10 months for marathon training from June to April. Mmmmm.....I want to go skiing at least once this winter....

You are one tough cookie!!

My suggestion is just to do London for fun. Back off on training after Tokyo and enjoy life!!

Keren, I will probably do London for fun, but I am kind of interested to see what will be the result of 10 month training.

Steve, yes I think I am in a way, now I realised it.
