Well the last before the marathon anyways.
I'm going to leave Saturday afternoon and take the fast train up to Tokyo.I'll meet up with a friend and go and pick up my race kit before some dinner and back to the hotel room for a hot bath with a couple of cold coronas and and early night.
Looking forward to the weekend but can't say I'm not a tad nervous. My shins are still both sore to the touch, yes I won't touch them, and my Achilles are also a bit suspect. If I don't do as well as I want it will be because of these, but on the positive side they haven't been bad enough to stop me from training and I have never had an injury prevent me from finishing a marathon before. Actually any prior injuries have all seemed to disappear when running the marathon funnily other injuries and tiredness seem to come up and trump the old pains.
I'm going to meet our friend Stephen Lacey too for the first time which I'm looking forward to too.
Wish me luck and as they say in Japan "Gambaremasu" "I'll do my best."
