This is February, the ABS month for some, the Tokyo Marathon for lucky guys.

So this is my fifth consecutive TM, 5/5, good score.

I started my taper as usual 6 weeks before the race. A bit too early, I guess.

But again, I can come up with many, many good excuses.

I’ll have to add some hours of running in the coming days to finish the training.

In the meantime:

Thursday 3rd: 1000m in 42′ at the pool before a good lunch with a friend.
Friday 4th: 1000m swimming in 41′ at the gym, 15K bike riding around Tokyo and 8K walking. Had a great lunch at Nirvanam in Kamiyacho with South Indian friends. Saw a Japanese royalty at Tokyo Dome for the opening of Japan ceramic fair. Great show and some very nice artwork.
Saturday 5th: We went to Shinjuku, did the world famous shinjuku eki tour then went up the observation Towers at the Tokyo To building (free access to 45th level). The view was a bit cloudy but we enjoyed the altitude. 8K.
Sunday 6th: Some errands on bike. 4K.

Run & Walk: Month: 16K, Year: 113 K
Swim: Month: 2000m, Year 5000m
Bike: Year 49K
