Is that you and my mate Stephen Lacey, Brett?

Well done!

Yesterday too a few of the locals here held a little charity run down in the southern suburbs of Osaka, around Sayama pond.

Not near as much money collected but every little bit help as we all know.

Thank you. Yes, that is Stephen and I. A good way to spend a beautiful afternoon, and more raised than expected. And agreed, Marty. Many of us consider this our home and have not abandoned it.

Today's Race - Samuel Wanjiru Rocks the 2004 National High School Ekiden

T-Minus About 100 Days to a National Record - Hitomi Niiya's Complete Training for Her Half Marathon NR in Houston

At the Jan. 19 Aramco Houston Half Marathon, Hitomi Niiya ran 1:06:38 to break Kayoko Fukushi's 2006-era national record with support from JRN. Former men's 800 m national record holder Masato Yokota, 32, coached Niiya to that record. Over the next three days he is publishing Niiya's complete training diary for the months leading up to Houston. JRN will be publishing them in English with permission.



To people who aren't interested this will just be a list of numbers, but I thought it might help the hardcore track maniacs kill some time if I got Niiya's consent to publish her training diary for the 100 days leading up to Houston. Please do not reproduce this info without permission. You're more than welcome to give these workouts a go (although I can't guarantee you'll survive).

Notes in advance
・Easy jogs were once a day on Friday and Sunday, twice a day on other days.
・Strength training every day except Sunday.
・Daily mileage totaled about 30 km. Friday…
