It's Tuesday where I am so I'm starting the TUESDAILIES! (Read 55 times)

    8 easy on a beautiful morning in Tokyo.

     

    Landed Sunday night and was dragging enough yesterday to not run. But I went for a walk last night and found a neat little park with baseball fields, play areas and a nice 800m walking/running path on the perimeter about 1/4 mile from the hotel. This was especially nice considering there isn't a fitness room in the hotel and running block to block in the city wasn't really exciting me.

     

    Woke up to the sun and almost 60 degrees this morning. Thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Even though it was 8 miles, 800 meters at a time I'll take it.

      If you're staying anywhere near Tokyo Station, it's worth the trip to run around Imperial Palace. 5 km loop. I think it's easily accessible from the marunouchi side exit, and you can get a coin locker in the station to stash a change if clothes, etc. Enjoy your trip.

      Go figure

        I don't see this going well.

         

        On the other hand, very cool that you're posting from Tokyo.  Sounds like you found an awesome little area for your run.  I hope you can get out there and explore more too.

        PRs:  Marathon (2:49xx; '13)  Half (1:25xx; '12) 10k (40:26; '11) 5mi (29:23; '13) 5k (17:33; '13)

          I've done that before and it is a nice run. I'm a little far from there this trip though.

            Well, if people don't like it I won't start the Dailies even though I'll be a bit ahead of you for the next 9 days. Wink

                  I literally had to read that thread title twice like WTF?

                   

                  You're good, I will hit this one in the morning!

                    Hey, would have been worse before the time change, 14 hrs ahead of ET instead of 13. Japan doesn't do DST.

                     

                    My company has global conference calls between US/Europe/Japan. We have to do it at 6AM in the US & 8PM in Japan; for the Euros it is in the middle of the day. Then they like to complain that we are interrupting their lunch, and they have a good laugh. Of course our comeback is "your economy is in shambles."

                      Well if it's Tuesday I ran 3 easy - I just didn't get around to it yet!

                      I'm so vegetarian I don't even eat animal crackers!

                            Oh haha. Yep, that was one and done for me too. Last time I stayed in a not so busy area so I did my runs out on the streets along a river. Maybe meguro.

                             

                            Well, this is kind of messing with me because I'm 3 hours away from my time zone.

                             

                            It's cold out and SRD for me.

                                I am not running today but would like to get some upper body work in.  Right now though, I am not motivated to do anything.

                                 

                                Bah.
