Running in Tokyo/Japan - Marathon/Clubs/Track Races


I participate to the Chiba Marine Half Marathon for the first time. It's a windy, popular and almost flat course. About 8000 runners took part in the Half Marathon. I'm training for Tokyo marathon and wanted to assess the results of the first two months of preparation. I had new PBs for 15k, 20k and half marathon by 24", 3'11 and 3"03. The wind woke up at 12k, a freezing reminder that we still in mid winter. A good day out there.

My splits (please be reminded that I'm a slow runner, a cancer survivor):

5K: 30'00"37,
10K: 29'01"18 total 59'01"55
15K: 30'34"46 total 1:29'36"01 <--PB
20K: 32'17"41 total 2:01'53"42 <--PB
Goal : 2:08'50 <--PB

After this, we know how much Daniel's PB is worth!

In the last 2k, in the downhill section from the main big bridge, the wind was really strong, many runners were walking, jogging, shivering in the cold. Downhill running around Imperial Palace is finally a useful skill.

The big bridge makes it a tough 5K or 10K. The 5K winnner's time was in 16 minutes + as they had to go up twice that bridge.
