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 (12:30am): Fun run today. At the start of the run I wasn't feeling like running hard so I decided to go easy, but after the first 1000 meters I was feeling very good, so the run ended up being a progressive run where I progressively ran each 1000 meters faster than the one before. It became very hard at the end, but afterwards, I felt very good for having done it.

AM (12:30am): Warm up run. Ran a 5K at about 80% effort. Time was 18:10. Felt really good and was not winded at the end. I am happy about this. I am sure I could run a good time if I were going all out. Finished off with easy running to reach 10K.

Recently I have been feeling like I have been wasting a lot of time at home during the lockdown, and I think I should be taking advantage of this time to do something to better myself. Today I decided to start a couple of courses on the MIT Open Courseware website. I am going to start two courses:

1- Elements of Mechanical Design

2- Modeling Dynamics and Control

I have done several of the MIT courses in the past and find them very well done.

I have really been getting behind on my sleep recently. I got my textbooks for the courses I am taking, and both textbooks have been very interesting. I have been reading them when I probably should be sleeping. Both books are very well written. I think I am really going to enjoy these courses.

I found out that I will be starting my Internship on June 1. I was supposed to start in April before all of this mess started. I am looking forward to it. I really enjoyed my internship with the same company last summer.

With less than 30 new cases per day of COVID-19 in the entire country, the Prime Minister of Japan declared an end of the state of emergency. I think people still need to be very careful, but it is nice to have things starting to get back to normal.

With the state of emergency over, and with my internship starting next week, I am going to have to re-think my training a little. I will probably change the times of day that I run.

AM: Did a warm up run. I decided to do a 1500m time trial today. I ran it in 4:38.55. I think I could have done much better than that if I would have been racing someone. Did a cool down run of a couple of miles.

PM: Ran an easy 10 miles

I think I need to go back to running in the middle of the night and mornings again. It is getting too hot to be running in the afternoon.

I am not sure how my training will go this week. I am starting my internship this week, and am not sure when I will be able to fit running in.
