It was tough being back after the holidays but there was some highlights to this week. Tokyo is still too hot to run during the day but I did manage another 90km and I am on target for 400km for the month if I can stay running 6 times a week. My Long Run on Sunday was originally going to be 34km but I cut it down to 30km on Saturday when I saw the weather forecast (30 degrees) and again to 28km when I was half way through it. I drank 3 litres of fluids on the run and came back 1.2kg lighter than when I left. It was a real struggle just to get home.
As you will have read, I managed a MAF test and started my HRV measurements which will hopefully help me train well for the rest of the summer and into the autumn. I am now thinking about when I will start the Marathon Paced Sessions. Perhaps I should wait until after the next MAF test in mid September.
It was also good to be under 80kg on a Monday morning for the first time since I started this program.
