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.
Next week will be the end of my first mesocycle so I plan to drop the weekly distance down to 65km to give myself a chance to recover before bumping it back up the following week.
Tuesday Aerobic 12.4km
Wednesday Aerobic 14.1km
Thursday Aerobic 14.3km
Friday Aerobic 14.1km
Sunday Aerobic 25.8km (Nagano Hills)
