Had a pretty good week of fitness and training. Ran intervals on Tuesday, tempo on Friday, and long run on Sunday. I was planning on running the April Fool’s 5K race on Friday, but it was canceled the day before – not sure if it some kind of April Fools joke or what – but that was okay, I was able to replace it with a productive tempo run instead. On Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday I got in my kettle bell training followed by a 20 minute yoga session. I didn’t run or do much on Thursday, except a 30 minute yoga session, because I thought I was going to run the 5K race on Friday and wanted the extra rest day before the race. Also, I was able to do about 1.5 mile walks after dinner every night followed by 10 minutes of stretching before bed.
My next race that I plan to focus on is a 10K charity race around Tokyo’s Imperial Palace on May 7th, about a month away. My goal is a sub-40, but my success will be highly dependent on the weather that day. If it stays below 65 degrees, I think I have a decent shot, above those temperatures, the odds are not in my favor.
