Week 5 8th to 14th July

Runs           5
Distance    80.7km
Weight       80.2kg
The weather in Tokyo is getting very hot and we had a few consecutive 35 degree days.I was fortunate that I managed to get out in the mornings because even at 8pm it is too hot to run. On Friday morning I noticed that it had not cooled down much from the previous evening and I found the going very tough. Fortunately we were able to escape to Nagano for the weekend and I could do my longest run since February. I cannot imagine running 25km in this sort of heat in Tokyo so I am hoping that it cools down a bit by next weekend. Other than the relatively moderate temperature, the other advantage of being in Nagano is great food and drink.
