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: Did an easy 10 miles.

PM: Did an easy 6 miles.

Started my internship today. It is going to be fun I think. Today was an orientation. I will be going to the office every third day. I will be in Group C. I won't be going again until Thursday. The days I do not go to the office I will be doing some work at home. With this schedule, only 1/3 of the work force will be at the office each day, making it easier to keep a distance from other workers.

I have not been assigned to an Engineering Group yet. There is an R&D group working on the development of new products. There is another group working on the improvement of existing products. And there is a group working on improving manufacturing methods of existing products, etc. Any one of groups sounds like it would be interesting. As an intern, I am sure that I will not have any major responsibilities, but I will have lots to learn.

Wen to my job today. I got assigned to the Engineering Group 3, Section 4. This group does work on improving manufacturing processes of automotive transmissions. Sounds interesting.

This was a tough week. I am not sure I want to increase my mileage anymore for a while. My ultimate goal is to do about 30km a day, but it is going to take some more time to work into that. I will try to maintain this distance for the next little while.

AM: 10 miles at a good pace. Even though I had to go to work today, I was still able to fit in a good run this morning. Work is exciting, and I will write more about that another time.

PM: 6 miles easy.

AM: Did an easy 10 miles including some fast sprints at the end. I have noticed that when I do a lot of long distance runs like I have been doing recently, my ability to sprint has decreased

End of another good week of training.

Next Monday if the weather is permitting, I am going to try and do another 1500m time trial. I wasn't satisfied with the last one. I know I can do better.

AM: Did a good warm run before my time trial. Ran a 1500m time trial.

My time today was 4:33.27. It was a news PR for me and about 5 seconds faster than my last time trial.

I am still a little disappointed. In looking at last years Japanese high school rankings, today's time would have put me in 104th place. I would like to get into the top 100. The top time last year was 4:10.99. I have a long way to go to get there. Top 100 would be 4:33.01. I think I can do that. I will wait a couple of more weeks and try again.

My training recently has been for an upcoming half marathon, so I am happy with my 1500m time since I have not been training for 1500m.

Finished off this mornings workout with a cool down run to get my 10 miles.

PM: 6 very easy miles.

I need to get to bed. I have work tomorrow.

AM: 15 mile long run. 200m sprints at the end of each mile. I really enjoyed this run.

PM: 6 miles easy.

The half marathon that I have been training for was cancelled. I feel really bad about this. The half marathon isn't until November. I think it is too early to cancel now, but oh well.

I have been thinking about whether or not to continue my training as scheduled for running a half marathon, or whether to scale back.

Right now I am at the best condition I have ever been in, I don't want to lose that fitness, but I am wondering if it is good to keep doing the high mileage I have been doing for a prolonged period of time, or if I should scale back a little.

I don't understand why they cancelled the half marathon I was training for.

COVID-19 is almost gone here in Japan, and unless there is a very severe 2nd wave, I don't even know if it will even be around in November at all.

I am very disappointed.

AM: Had a real hard getting out of bed this morning. Since my race was cancelled, my motivation level is about "zero". I need to find a race or something so that I have a goal to be working toward.

Once I got out and started running I ran a really good workout.

Short warm up run. Then ran 10 x 1000m fast (I ran these really hard, I was working out my frustration on these. I felt a lot of anger while running these, but it helped me run them extra hard.) Finished with a jog to get my 10 miles.

PM: Ran 8 miles easy. I am increasing the mileage a little this week.
