Had a great trip back to the USA and Seattle, but it also feels great to be back in Japan.  It is really cold here though.

Didn't run a single step while in the USA and I think I must have gained a few pounds.  :)

Official training for track begins on Monday.  I am kind of looking forward to that.

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.

Ran an easy warm up, then ran 10 x 400m steep hill sprints.  Walked down the hill between each.  Ended with an easy cool down run.

6 miles of easy running.

10 x 50 m sprints all out at the end.

My left achilles is hurting today.  Maybe it is all of the fast sprinting that is getting to it.  It is on the left side, the same side as I had my broken ankle.  Maybe the supporting muscles on that side are still weak so there is too much stress on the achilles.  

I enjoy being on the school team, but the most frustrating thing is not being in charge of my own training.  Sometimes I feel that the workouts are too much, and at other times I don't think they are enough.  I wish I had the option of being able to select my own training to fit how my body is feeling at the time.

6 miles easy.  Achilles a little better but still feel it.   This weekend is our first track meet.  I am scheduled to run a 800m and 1500m double.  We will be leaving on Thursday to go to the meet.  I am on the traveling team (that is because there are only three of us middle distance runners), but whether I run or not just depends on how my achilles is feeling on the weekend.  Coach says that if my achilles is still hurting on Saturday, this small meet is not worth risking the entire season on it.  It is better to take it easy now.

3 miles easy.

Coach informed me this morning that I won't be going to the meet this weekend.  Also he doesn't want be doing any running for the rest of the week.  Need to get my achilles better.

No running today.  The team left today to go to this weekends meet. I was kind of looking forward to going but I need to let my achilles recover.  

Going to a hot spring resort with my mother and step father tomorrow.  Maybe the soak in the hot bath will help my achilles.

No running.

My family is at a hot springs resort.  It is great and the baths are wonderful.

I feel very relaxed after soaking in the hot bath.  Maybe a little too relaxed.  When I get out I feel almost like rubber.

This weekend it will be a year since I twisted my ankle and broke my ankle running a 10K race.  It has been a fast year in some respects, and a very long year in other respects.  

I don't know if I will have any kind of an indoor track season with my sore achilles but I am looking forward to the spring track season.  I want to be in top shape by then.
