    Another day running errands around town. I think next purchase will be an actual bike computer to keep track of this stuff vs. just mapping out out when I get home!

      I'm new to running completely. No idea about pacing, about proper stride, or anything.

      I sorta just run at what feels like a comfortable pace/gait, and try to land non-heel first. Guess that's a start!

    Feeling it in the ankles this time, this particular route is up, down, up, down, up down, I wish I had an elevation profile!!!

      Great post! I've missed most of your recent stuff. True story on the weight loss and easier running-awesome results! As to the posting: I put my non-mileage efforts with my mileage efforts in the dialog box. If I do two mileage w/o's I post them separately-that way I can go back and look at my logs and figure the cardio stuff out. How bike friendly is Japan (where you are)?

      Extremely bike friendly! Just no bikes here yet! Sold most of mine before I came, but the opportunities are here if I just have the equipment. Maybe in the spring!

      I guess if I do anything extra than my morning yoga/stretches, pushups, etc I'll post those up. I can mentally and physically feel if I slack off, so don't need the website telling me to pick it up! :)

      Good job on the yoga today. I found a yoga dvd that is looking good-but I have to learn the routines. It's hard to lie on the floor and see the screen to figure out what they are describing! Nice work on the push up challenge!

      Was there a particular program that you worked off of (the yoga) I need to do a lot of good stuff to keep my corkscrew back in good working order. Always on the look out for low cost yoga stuff.

      I started checking out podcasts on iTunes. Been using ones from Yogamazing & Yogajournal the most used ones. YogaToday.com has a free hour long class each week too which I am going to check out. Once I get good enough I think I'll be stringing along my own ones.

    Good to be doing Yoga again. Especially because it keeps me focused on just where my body is and what I do with it. I just corrected a slouching position at my desk just now ... heh.

      I used to go running in Tokyo but would get a raw throat from the air pollution. Are you scoping out places to get in some cardio or are the l-o-n-g walks going to be your focus?

      I'm hoping to get into running while I don't have a bike. The Pollution in Nagoya isn't nearly as bad from what I am seeing so far.

      I will go nuts w/o a bike eventually, but my wife is expressing interest in getting back into running to so perhaps we can motivate each other to get in a half hour - hour every day.
