Week of Feb. 8 ~ 14
Enough of them, I hope. Anyway 120km this week (74.5 mi.)
20k @4:51 1:37:09
Cruising easily, felt good coming back.
11:00am - weights and abs.
Springlike weather at 16C/61F
20k 10:00am - 12k @5:21 1:04:09
At the track at night - 8k
Legs felt ok. Running fairly hard, but not all out.
6C/43F - spring went away again.
18k @5:04 1:31:15
8:00 in the morning but felt ok. 5:04 for recovery run is good.
12k. 6k warmup @5:25
6k @4:31 (4:28/35/36/33/29/24)
Planned 6k at MP (4:21) but it was quite cold. I can't run fast in the cold and dark (6:00pm). Also had in the back of my mind that tomorrow will be a fairly hard run.
32.2k @5:07 2:40:50
Went to my father-in-law's at Tsudanuma and met Cory McGowan for a run in Makuhari. He is a relatively new but pretty good runner who will be running the Tokyo Marathon. We have been emailing for about 6 months and finally met for a run. It was planned as 25k and may have been somewhat less but the 5:07 pace seems right so I am calling it 25k (plus 7.2k there and back to meet him). It was cold with intermittent rain but we had an enjoyable run.
Just taking it easy. Legs tired but not sore.
Total for week: 120.2k (74.5 miles). 10:14
