First day of track practice. I am on the middle distance team and will be running the 800m and sometimes 1500m. There are 3 members in our group. In comparison, there are 18 in the long distance group. They run the 3000m and 5000m. There is also about 15 girls in the sprinting group 100m to 400m. That is an indication of where the Japanese place emphasis I think.
Today we had to weigh in.
I was 177 cm and 51 kg. I think I might be the tallest on the team.
After weigh ins we ran a warm up, then ran 5K at 10K pace (my time was 19:10).
Ran a cool down.
It was cold, but nice and sunny today.
We did some weight lifting after and some core exercises.
