It has been many long months since I ran 30 km. And while there were a couple of short stoppages, yesterday I clocked up 31.6 km, mostly in Yoyogi park.
I had set Satohi a 20-km marathon pace run (4:40/km). She turned up and we did two warm up laps (5km) together and then set about the pace run. I wasn't ready to do the whole thing, but I ran the first five of her ten laps with her. We did OK, but the real hard work lay ahead for her when I pulled up. I wonder how she got on...
I ran another 5 or 6 km and finished feeling in pretty reasonable shape. A big contrast with last week was that it was only 22 degrees yesterday and felt cool and comfortable (if still a little humid). What a difference a mere 5 degrees makes.
And the weekly total, drum roll please, 89.6 km!! What did I say about missing that run on Friday? A bit more consistency this week should see me nudge 100 km.
