Personal:

Attended Japanese high school and finished in March 2020. Was very lucky to be able to be a member of a very good team of runners at my high school, even though I was injured most of the time and was not able to be much of a contributor. Am currently doing an Engineering internship at a large manufacturer of Automotive transmissions, etc. It is really exciting. In spring of 2021, if COVID-19 has subsided, I am planning to serve an LDS mission, after which I plan to go to college and study Engineering.

AM: 2 mile easy warm up. 3 miles hard. 1 mile cool down.

The country here is in kind of a Panic mode.

My mother wanted me to go b back to Seattle after school ended, but now it seems there are probably more cases in the Seattle area than there are here.

I want to stay in Japan at least until after the Olympics because I am registered as a volunteer.

I hope they will still hold the Olympics.

AM: 6 miles fairly easy.

PM: 6 mile progression run. Ran a little faster every 40 m until I reached a point where I could no longer increase the speed. Tried to hold that final speed for as long a possible before slowing down to finish off the run.

I was stopped today by a policeman. He told me I should be inside so as not to get the Corona virus. I told him I thought it was probably better outside in the fresh air. I am so tired of hearing about the virus. I would love to get away from any news broadcasts about the virus. I think it is fueling fear of the virus which makes things worse. I am going to go on self quarantine away from all new broadcasts.

AM: 6 hard miles. PM: 6 easy miles. I am considering suspending my afternoon runs until this virus thing is over. I feel that people are looking at me running and think I should be home in isolation. I still think it is good to get outside in the sunshine and fresh air. Need the vitamin D from the sun to build the immune system. I have been watching the TV news reports from the USA, and it looks like people are in kind of a panic mode. In my opinion, I don't think Pres. Trump has handled this very well at all. I think he has allowed for a situation that fosters panic. I also do not like the comments from Dr. Fauci. His comments seem to be more "Doomsday" than encouraging. I also don't know how helpful it is to report every day the running total of cases. The increasing number seems to make people panic. There is never any mention of the number of recovered patients only the running total. In my opinion, if they are going to give a number, they should report only the number of case currently in the hospital under hospital care. That would give a better snap-shop of what the current situation really is. For example in China there has bee a total of about 80,000 cases. However, of those they have reported that about 60,000 have recovered, so the actual number of current patients is about 20,000. If you report only the running total of patients it make the situation sound much worse than it really is. In Japan, the total number of cases has been about 1300 of those 700 were people aboard the Diamond Princess Cruise ship, who were the first patients in Japan. There have been 542 cases originating in Japan and 19 deaths in Japan, and 7 deaths among the cruise ship passengers. Mot of the cruise ship passengers have recovered and have returned home to their home countries. I keep hearing a lot about testing. I hear that it would be good if every one were tested, however, in my opening I don't think that is necessary. I think if a person gets symptoms, whether it is symptoms of a cold, corona virus or the flu, a person should stay home, and not go out in public. If the person's symptoms do not improve and get worse, or if a person's fever lasts for more than a couple of days, they should contact a doctor. Then they should receive testing to see if they have corona virus, the flu, or the common cold. The way this has been handled by government, and reported in the news has made the situation far worse than what it really is I think. It is a serious situation, but I think it could be handled and reported in a better way.

Sorry for going on like this.

Stay healthy everyone!

AM: 10 mile easy run. I used to see many other people running in the morning, but recently I don't see any. Am I doing something wrong by going out running?

AM: Ran 1000m hard followed by 1000m easy, and repeated that for about 10 miles.

My mother and I are faced now with the decision of whether to return to the USA, or to stay in Japan until this virus thing is over. I want to stay in Japan. I doubt now that they will continue with holding the Olympics this summer, but I am registered to be a volunteer and if they have the Olympics I want to be here.

I also have an Internship arranged with a large company here that was supposed to start in April, but has been temporarily postponed.

I was hoping to stay in Japan until next March when I am hoping to go on an LDS mission, but even that is not certain anymore since the missionaries are going home and I don't know if they are calling new missionaries now.

AM: 15 mile easy run. I actually had planned to go only 10 miles, but I got into a rhythm and it felt so good that I went more. This is the longest run I have done in a long time.

Well, the Olympics have been postponed. That might make me rethink my plans for the future.

AM: 6 miles easy. Recently, I haven't felt like doing anything. It is sometimes really hard to get out the door in the morning for my run. Once I am out running I feel much better, but the whole world seems so dark and gloomy now.

PM: 6 miles easy. The cherry blossoms are in bloom now and it is beautiful.

AM: Where I live in Japan is under lockdown this weekend, so no running outside. I wanted to get to 70 miles this week, so I ran in place with high knees for 30 minutes, and I am going to count that as the 1 mile I need to reach 70.
