A while ago I posted about my training for an Ekiden in February. I’m happy to say that I’ve made steady progress without any injuries or set backs for the last two months so I should be ready to go in 4 weeks! I am racing 9.3 km which is the last stage and is located in the far south of Ogaki. I haven’t seen the course yet. As for my training, as we get closer to the race I’m keeping my total distance around 50 to 60 km a week, but I’m adding lots of faster running like 5 km in 20 minutes or 6 to 8 300 meter sprints with 150 meter jog between each. Then the last week I’ll just do easy jogging to rest up. I’ll let you know the result in February!
