tokyo running days

A marathoner / newbie triathlete's training blog.

Tuesday, November 7

The verdict.

The final race pace run at Tamagawa on Sunday turned out to be a fiasco. I couldn't keep the planned pace until the end of the 10k mark while I was trying to run 25k. I talked to coach Brett, and we finally verdicted that I am not ready for the primary target and need to set the realistic target. Fine. I am rather relieved than disappointed somehow.

Nevertheless, I will run for my new PB in the race. Gambarimasu. :-)

Sorry to hear that the pace run did not go to plan. Good luck setting the new target -- selecting the correct pace for the marathon is a big job in itself. I'm sure you can still get a solid PB! Ganbarimashou!

... besides Tokyo Ladies is only the first and slowest of your marathon series so you can still shave 3 minutes at each marathon!
And dont forget to eat 50 pieces of sushi like Naoko Takahashi :)

Steve, now I am feeling comfortable with the new race plan. It sounds to me quite right.

Arnaud, I would rather eat 2kg of steak than 50 pieces of Sushi. In Tokyo, it will be interesting to watch the race of Takahashi vs. Tosa. I wish I could watch it live...
