Did kettlebell and yoga for core fitness training on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. I ran on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday for a total of 21 miles. Thursday was a rest day, but did 30 minutes of yoga.
On Friday, instead of my normal tempo run, I ran a 5K race. I beat my goal of 18:30, running an 18:26, which was also a personal record. Click here for details of the race report.
This upcoming week will also be a light week since I’m planning to run a half marathon on Sunday. I’ll do my normal kettlebell and yoga routine on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On Tuesday I’ll do 6 x 400m intervals and an easy and relaxed 5 – 6 mile run on Thursday. I will do a little restorative yoga on Saturday, the day before the race. Sunday morning (June 5th) will be my half marathon in Tokyo and if the weather conditions are decent, I am hoping to run around 1 hour and 30 minutes.
