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: Very, very slow and easy 10 miles. Yesterday's time trial took more out of me than I thought. At the start of the run, I thought I would never finish it, but after about 6 miles my body started loosening up a bit.

PM: Easy 8 miles. Felt much better than this morning's run.

This is end of a very good week of running. I have reached the maximum distance that I have been working toward. Now I will try to very gradually increase quality of my workouts.

AM 10 miles easy. It didn't cool down much during the night, so it was hot and humid for my run. I probably didn't take in enough fluids before the run, and I felt a little dehydrated at the end. I need to be more careful in the future.

PM: Easy 8 miles. Felt much better during this run than during the morning run.

For the internship that I am doing, I must select a topic from a list of possible choices of a technical problem to work on. I must come up with some possible solutions to the problem and select an optimum solution and develop a plan to carry out the solution. I must then give a presentation to my supervisor. It sounds really exciting. I have narrowed down my choices for a topic to two. The deadline for submitting the topic is this week, so I must make a decision.

Engineering is really an exciting field. I am loving it.

AM: Ran a short warm up. Then ran an 800m time trial. My time was 2:15.26.

Not as good as I had hoped for. In last years high school rankings in Japan, that would have put me at 172nd place. To break into the top 100, I need to get that down to 2:14.26. Only one second. There is only one second difference between the 100th place ranking and the 172nd place ranking in last years rankings.

Then I ran 15 x 400m sprints, and finished off with a cool down run to get 10 miles.

PM: Ran a very easy 8 miles.

AM: Easy 10 miles. There were more people out running this morning. It is a National Holiday. The set this day as a holiday last year. This would have been the opening day of the 2020 Olympics. The Olympics are supposed to start next year on this day, but I wonder if it will really happen.

PM: Easy 8 miles.
