So we're back from our 2 week trip to Tokyo and yes, we could have stayed longer.
AMAZING! That's the only thing I can say for the moment.
Wiley I'm trying not to disappoint.
Note to self either run when you are on vacation or take vacation when you're not training for a marathon.
Let's just say running once a week didn't prepare me for Tuesday's work-out. We did the "Warhurst" work-out. The name says it all. This had a variety of track work at 10k pace (1600m, 1200m, 800m & 2X400m) with a road/off road tempo mile in between. When it was all said and done this thing totaled 9.5 miles (including warm-up/cool down). My final 400 felt more like a toddler learning to walk. That's how wobbly my legs were. I guess this is one way of getting me out of vacation mode.
Wed morning run resembled a 90 year old shuffling down the street. I can't tell you how many times I almost fell flat on my face from not being able to pick my feet up off the ground. Good thing it was dark wouldn't want anyone to witness this lovely site.
