Went up to route 16 crossed over into Saitama and then back down to Noda bridge. Home now and think I’ll head off to the gym to use the hot bath, sauna and shower. Legs were good for the 1st 5km then started to hurt a bit then on a downhill stretch I had to walk it. The knees just can’t handle the pressure. Stopped for a hot can of coffee at Shinzakaya, switched the ipod to some up tempo music and got home in good style. The firt 10km I was listening to Japanese lessons. (not good footwork music).
Stretching exercises I need to do to correct the pain.
Also, this morning I went into the 82kg range. Been many years since I got that low so I’m feeling happy about that. I think the weight is just dripping off now with Spring just around the corner. The winter conserve hormones have switched off and it’s time to shed the winter blubber.
This time last year I was 95kg. ( A world record for me). 18 years ago I was 68kg. (Just as I got married). I had been 80kg even before that as well. I think I can get down to 75.
