Goal Type:



3nd year student (senior) in high school in Japan.

Miles:This week: 0.00 Month: 0.00 Year: 988.00
Total Distance

AM: 6 easy miles.

PM: warmup run, 20 x 200m , cool down run.

Recently, I have been faced with a difficult decision.

I have been very busy lately with my studies at my high school here in Japan. Also I have been continuing with my home schooling. I have also started studying for the SAT and ACT exams. All that together with my running and training, I just haven't had time to do everything I want to do.

I have decided that something has to go.

Even though lately I haven't been spending much time in writing here on my blog, I have decided that I just don't have time to make entries here every day.

I have really enjoyed it here on the blog, and have appreciated all of the advice and encouragement I have received, but I have decided to take a rest from the blog for right now. Maybe someday when I have more time I will be back.

I want to wish everyone here the best.

I had to do the same thing a couple of times. I just recorded the past week of training every weekend in one post. Either way, hope your ekiden season goes well.

Good luck with all of your endeavors! I look forward to your return at some future time!

Seriously? It literally takes me 2 minutes a day and I have a full time job and tons of parent/family responsibilities.

You can do it Eva!

Good luck on the rest of your season, Eva! Iíll miss your entries but you do you! I totally get that, Iíve had to delete social media off of my phone quite a few times to focus more on studies and this is kind of like that. Good luck with everything, Iíd love updates from time to time but no worries if not! Also, BYUI is amazing if you do end up coming here youíll have to let me know!

Thanks everyone!

Mr Murphy...As always I think your are probably right. You are always a voice of reason. I guess maybe I just need to be better at time management.

Eugene...Maybe I will try what you have suggested and update my blog weekly instead of trying to write everyday.
