I'm expecting this to be a pathetic training week. I'm on my way to Tokyo and I left home at 5:00 A.M. Saturday. I won't get to my hotel until around 7:00 P.M. Sunday. So there won't be any running this weekend. During the week I'll run about 20 minutes/day, but it will be slower than normal since I won't be on a track and it will be cold. These days biking is an important part of my training and there won't be any of that.
When I get back I'm under orders from Mark to run fast so I can get a photo taken for the blog. The problen is I'm in no condition to do this--even a 220 at a decent speed will be difficult since I haven't done any kind of "speed" work for months.
I'm so glad that spring is only about five months away where I live.
