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

東京でのマラソン・陸上・駅伝・・・・・体を鍛えて、環境を守ってエコマラソン

I ran 10K race, Shinrin Koen Manso Marathon, at Saitama yesterday.
As saying my result first, I set another PB! :)

Weather was crowdy and but not too cold, so I would say it was a good condition for runners. The course was very hilly, almost no flat part, keep up and down.
Personally, I like hilly course. I prefer variation on the course, so I enjoyed this one.
But keep up and down tires your legs quickly. I learned my upper body strength is quite important, especially, for this kind of races. I tried to repositioned my upper body many time because I realized sometimes at the hilly courses, your posture getting off the proper position.

I guess I did great.
I have never looked at my watch after 4-5K point, but I finished 47min37sec, which is almost a minute shorter than previous race 2 weeks ago.

This one was really a good race to aim another PB at Oume, because I expect Oume course is somehow the similar setting to this one.

Well, I think it's the good Namban practice! Gambatte in Ome!

Oh, is it? Maybe the clock was broken then. :)
Actually, I was holding energy gel and taking it during the race. I think that was one of the reasons, too. :)
But I am really good at hilly courses. My best time for half marathon was set at Budou Kyo Marathon at Yamanashi. That one is well-known as one of the toughest up&down courses.

Very suspicious, all these PBs, did you steel Kiyo's Powerbars? This is actually a difficult course, I have never even gotten close to a PB there, so, yes, you could run even faster on an easier one!
