Today's run was more of a steady state run though relaxed. I threw in some strides at the end then worked on my abs, quads and calves then stretched. Thoroughly.
I just want to be careful and patient with the warmups and warmdowns and keep stretching thoroughly.
Yuki Kawauchi was so penitent after coming 14th in the Tokyo Marathon that he shaved his hair and apologized to his fans for letting them down. Yuki is the best amateur runner in the world. He ran a 2:08 marathon and has a full-time job.
Here he is with his shaved head.
