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.

It has been a while since I wrote on my blog.

I have been to the other side of HELL and back with COVID-19. It hit me extremely hard and I really suffered with it.

It has been more than a month now since I have recovered, and even though the doctors say they cannot find anything wrong with me, I still do not feel 100% normal. I still get winded easily and my heart starts racing like crazy. Some mornings I just cannot get out of bed.

I have started getting back to running, but I have found it very difficult.

Last week I ran a 5K time trial. My time was 37:27. Much of which was walking. When I run, my heart starts pounding and my chest hurts and I have difficult breathing, so I have to stop and walk.

Today my goal was to run 1 mile without stopping. Unfortunately, I was only able to go three laps around the track before I had to stop. I walked and ran some until I got 3 miles today.

I will take a couple of days off to rest, and will try this again.

For those who take this virus lightly, please don't. I know that some and maybe even most have only few problems, but some like me get it very hard. So please do what you can to stop the spread. Wear a mask and avoid crowds.

Last week I tried running a mile without stopping. I failed last week in my attempt and was only able to do 3 laps of the track before I had to stop.

I rested most of last week and decided to take on that challenge again today.

Today, to my surprise, I was feeling much better as I ran and, even though difficult, I was able to complete a mile without stopping. I then walked for a mile and tried running a mile again, and was also able to finish that mile without stopping.

Today was a very encouraging day for me.

I was able to accomplish my goal of running one mile, not only once, but twice.

PS: I heard recently about a training method called MAF. I have been interested in starting it.

If anyone has ever tried it, or has any tips regarding it, I would love to hear about it.
