Tokyo Marathon 2010
Tomorrow I will be running the Tokyo Marathon.
The longest race I have previously run is a half marathon, but thanks to a 12-week marathon training plan that I found on the net I feel I am absolutely ready for it. I was a bit concerned when I got sick during the first week of the schedule and had to drop most of that weeks runs, but it turned out to not really have a negative impacts on me.
Here is the plan that I followed:

During training, my longest run was 35K, so I have not yet run a full marathon distance. Although when I did that run I felt like I had plenty left in my tank and could have stretched it out for the full 42.2K if I needed to.
I’m planning on taking a Ricoh GR Digital with me so I can take pictures during the race. The forecast is calling for a 90% chance of rain, so that could kill my plans to take pictures as I don’t want to kill my camera.
Wish me luck!
