30km PR…2:02:26 (大濠公園×15) ※1周2km
LAP…8:22-8:18-8:20-8:09-8:09-8:12-8:15-8:15-8:15-8:16-8:10-8:04-8:03-8:00-7:32

今シーズン初の30kmPR(ペース走)

設定は4:15~4:00/kmペース。
全体を通して設定通りに走れた上、徐々にペースアップ出来たので上出来。

今シーズン、本格的なマラソン練習はまだ始めたばかりなので身体は仕上がっていないが、ひとまず30kmをしっかり走り切れたのでok。

4分ペースで走ること自体しばらく遠ざかっていたが、普段から身体を自分の思い通りに動かす意識で走っていたので、ペースを4分台に上げても身体は付いてきてくれた。
ただ、心肺機能がまだ仕上がっていないのはところどころで感じた。

最初の10kmは身体を馴らす感覚で走り、11~20kmでようやくリズムを掴む。
23~28km でペースを意識的に少しだけ上げてラスト1kmからさらにペースアップした。
しかし、最後のペースアップは切り替えが中途半端だったのでまだまだ。
もっとキレ味のあるスパートを繰り出せるようにしたい。

4km以降ほぼずっと先頭で走っていたので比較的自分の思い通りにペースメイクできた。
自分は一定のペースを保って走る方が得意なタイプのランナーである。

これからはスタミナとスピードをうまく馴染ませる練習をしていくつもり。

走行距離:30km

 

<室見川RCチャリティ駅伝>

●2km×4…9:38, 8:42, 8:28, 7:46

●6km×1…26:00 (8:40-8:28-8:51)

※1周2km

大濠公園で30km走した後、そのまま5~6km歩いて室見川へ。
100kmチャリティ駅伝に参加。
30km走で脚を相当使っていたので、こちらは怪我をしない程度に抑えて走る

2kmは本数を追うごとに身体が動くようになってきたので、それに伴ってタイムも短縮。

6kmは午前中のペース走の感覚で走った。
この日既に36km走っていたが、その割には身体はちゃんと動いてくれた。

走行距離:14km

 

●チャリティ駅伝終了後、打ち上げ→温泉

心地良い疲労感に包まれながら、様々な年代、職業のランニング仲間と飲んで話して過ごす。
それから温泉で身体をケアした後は、なんとも言えない充実感がある。

やっぱり僕はランニングバカなのだろう。

本日の走行距離は44km。
単なるJogじゃないので脚は相当疲労しているはず。
明日、明後日は控えめに。

3km Jog
+3km×2…10’56”, 10’49”

ハンモックACの方々とリレーマラソンに参加。
ハンモックさんのリレーメンバーに欠員が出たため参加させてもらった。

3kmを2本走る。
ヤフオクドームの中を走れるというのは大きな魅力だが、コースがアップダウンやらカーブやらが沢山ありすぎてタイムを求めるようなレースではなかった。
また、ドームを埋めつくすランナーの数に驚いた。
走っているときも大勢のランナーがいて減速せざるを得ない箇所が多かった。

タイムうんぬんではなく、お祭り的な大会で楽しかった。
陸上、マラソン関係の方々との再会や新しい出会いも多く実りある時間になった。

とりあえずタイムは11分を切って久しぶりに3分台で走ることが出来たので、ひとまずオーケーという感じ。
速い動きの感覚を取り戻す意識で走ったが、動きは悪くない。
大きい動きで走ることができた。

ただ心肺機能の衰えた感は否めない。
これから徐々に戻していく。

走行距離:10km

走って手紙を届けます『ランニング郵便』

現代の“飛脚”

先日、素敵なお仕事をいただいた。

内容は、福岡~熊本まで走って手紙を届けるというものだ。

 

現代の“飛脚”である。

飛脚は、目的地までリレー方式で複数人のランナーが物を届けたそうだが。

 

今回は僕一人で福岡から熊本まで走って手紙を届ける

 

ああ、またなんて馬鹿なことを。

●依頼してくれたのは、
旅するカメラマン・園田滉樹くん。
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004138600439&fref=ts

ちなみに、日本縦断ランの道中でも、彼には名古屋でお世話になった。

そして先日、我々は福岡で再会を果たしたのである。

●彼は現在、日本中を旅して回りながら、写真を撮ったり路上で販売したりしている。

12043096_572430652904883_6698926853805224684_n

(僕も何度か買ってます。良い写真を撮るんです。)

 

その彼が先日、熊本を旅していた時に出会った方の写真を撮ったそうだ。

長年連れ添った愛犬とともに撮影された素敵な写真だった。

 

ところが、撮った写真をプリントしてその方に手渡す前に滉樹くんは熊本を離れなければいけなくなった。

それから福岡にやってきた滉樹くんは、郵便でその写真と手紙を本人のもとへ送ろうとしていた。

 

そこで僕が

「福岡から北海道まで走ったけど、九州はまだ走ってないから九州も走りたいなア」

とか変なことを言い出したもので、滉樹くんは

「じゃあ、カズマにこの写真を熊本まで走って届けてもらうわ!」

という流れになったわけだ。

“超”非効率なランニング郵便

 

「走って手紙を届ける」

 

どこまでも非効率な届け方である。

 

時間がかかる。

お金がかかる。

身体が疲れる。

 

100円程度の切手を貼って郵便ポストに投函してしまえば郵便局が迅速に届けてくれるというのに。

 

それなのに、滉樹くんは僕に頼んでくれた。

 

僕らもなぜこんなことをするのか良く分かっていない。

強いて言うなら、

「何か面白い方法で届けたい」

というくらい。

 

それを受け取る方は、本当に喜んでくれるのだろうか。

まだ確信は持てないけれど。

 

幸いにも受取人の方も早急を要してはいないとのことだった。

 

短い時間で届けることはできないかもしれない。

けれど、責任もって受取人の元まで届けさせていただきます!

ありがとう、滉樹。

Running across Japan Day3-4 Yamaguchi

The same article in Japanese 日本縦断ラン 3~4日目(山口)

<Day3 (Apr. 4)>
Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi~Yamaguchi, Yamaguchi

 

Oduki

It was somewhat hard to sleep out in the 2nd day.

I was about to fall down from the bench since it was too narrow.

Actually, I fell down once.

 

20150404_061956

Anyway, I cannot hate him.

 

Good bye, Oduki.

If I were not challenge Running across Japan, I might have not know even the name of the place.

20150404_062128

 

 

●Country road

20150404_083327

It appeared rural landscape.

It is a calm scenery.

I have no complaint because I like countryside.

I took a rest on my way.

 

●something wrong on my body

I had run over 100 km within 2 days.

My legs were getting hard.

Although it is natural.

 

In fact, I had had my hurt right leg and I had not run for 2 weeks before I started this journey.

I had protected my right leg, which causes this pain now.

20150404_112922

When I suffer much pain on my legs, I took a picture.

The scenery of sakura was beautiful.

I cheated my mind.

 

 

●Philosophy of masochism

I had a contradiction.

I say “Enjoy to run.”

 

However, I am suffering to run now.

 

My legs were almost not able to work.

My shoulders and my waist were rubbed with a backpack to be about to bleed.

 

I couldn’t run as usual.

 

“It is impossible to enjoy to run in this situation!”

 

To be honest, I thought that.

 

Yes, it is hard to run.

Besides, you have to run 50 km a day with a heavy luggage.

It is natural to be hard.

 

In spite of that, people still go on running.

It is interesting.

As if they enjoyed to suffer.

It is masochistic.

 

However, I think it is great to be able to enjoy a suffering situation.

 

You can consider anyway.

“When I get over this, I would be more powerful”

“When I finish running, I would eat something delicious.”

“I am very cool to do something hard. Huuu.”

 

Anything is ok.

 

If they are called “masochists”, that word is a kind of compliments for me.

 

●Ogori

When I was thinking about “masochists”, I have arrived at Ogori, Shin-Yamaguchi station.

I decided to stay in a business hotel.

It was the first time to sleep inside.

 

I looked for cheap one and find oldie hotel after a while walking around.

And I checked-in.

20150404_192727

I wanted to reply mails, but there seemed to be no Wi-Fi.

It is a little too oldie.

 

Am I to have to rest well today?

 

[Day3・ Distance 43km]

 

<Day4 (Apr. 5)>
Yamaguchi, Yamaguchi~Shunan, Yamaguchi

 

●Start at Shin-Yamaguchi station

After spending time in the morning, I have started at 8:30 am

 

I had soaked into a bathtub yesterday, so I was fine today.

I went on running simply toward Hofu.

 

●Sanami

When I am taking rest in front of a convenient store, a lady talked to me.

After talking a while, she bought some meals for me.

20150405_102921

Although I asked her name,

she said “No,no. Don’t mind.”

 

Although I asked her to take a picture of us,

she said “No, no. Don’t mind.”

 

 

“Take care, and go for it.”

She said and has gone.

 

I was moved.

Is this a love that asks nothing in return?

 

So cool. I want to be a human like her.

I don’t exaggerate, but it removed tiredness from me at all.

 

●Hofu

Although I was getting fine, strong hurt struck my left leg.

The bone on my knee seemed to be worn out.

 

If I kept running, I would have hurt my legs.

Then, I switched to walking.

It is good to walk slowly too.

20150405_140454 20150405_14070620150405_141759

 

I found a kind of secret route.

And I took a rest to see the sea.

20150405_143830

I managed to recover to run slowly.

In this journey, a power to recover is very important.

 

But, I couldn’t run more than 10 km then.

After that, I went on walking to look for a place to sleep.

 

Joyfull

20150405_183321

In Shin-Nanyou, I found a place to sleep.

 

It is common for Kyusyu people, Joyfull.

 

In the end, I considered the restaurant as a hotel.

What a nerve I am.

 

Since there was not so many people in the restaurant, I stayed there.

I appreciated…

●2015. Apr.  6:55am
From Ohori Park, Fukuoka

I have started “Running Journey across Japan.”

11067136_931819596838167_5131989012639497152_n 11053658_746588295458044_5374425798914848003_n

I was in Korea the day before yesterday,
so I was very busy to prepare for the Journey yesterday.
That tight schedule made me overslept today!

So many my running mates came to see me off.
I am really sorry to have kept them waiting so long…

Anyway, I managed to start Running Journey across Japan.

10646976_746588388791368_4806811420071792760_n 10999562_746588418791365_3212798056423749733_n

My running mates gave me a T-shirt with messages.
This would give me power so much.
I deeply appreciate it.

Although it was very busy start, it might have been good for me not to be nervous.
On the contrary, I am a happy man because so many people came to see me off and gave me presents and messages.

I will enjoy it best!
And I hope my Running Journey would make people around me more cheerful.

 

●Now, I have started.

My mind rose up and I felt as I could run to anywhere.

No, no, no. This is dangerous.
It is dangerous to run so hard in the beginning.

I run with making my rising mind down.

However, when I checked my watch…

It had been 3 hours since I started.

Huh?
3 hours already?

Anyway, I seemed to be excited more than usual.

11130119_385415668335138_3988359574624379894_n

I ran with Hidaka-san after I started.
He is a triathlete.
Though his specialty is bike, he run fast as well.

 

●Route 3

If I didn’t challenge like this, I wouldn’t have cared about route number at all.

When you challenge something, your view will be widened.

20150402_114204 10425362_746590458791161_2389324025119343601_n

The first rest point was Munakata, Fukuoka.
I had lunch here, and I took rest for the last half today.

Blue sky and beautiful flowers go well together here.

When you find beautiful scenery, you can stop running and take a rest.

You can do like this in the Running Journey.

 

●Ebitsu’s great water

The weather was so fine that it made me thirsty.

And I had run out of water.

At that instant, this appeared on the road.

20150402_152841

“Ebitsu’s natural water.”

Though it seemed to cost 100 yen, I appreciated.

But, when you look carefully…

20150402_152946

100 yen for 20 Liter.

I see. This is a lot of selling.

Then, a local person came and we talked a while.
She came here to pick water as well as me.

And,

“I don’t need all 20 liter water, so you get some.”

She said.
Th… Thanks!

That was great water soaked into my heart and body.

 

 

●Onga, today’s goal

I basically run 50km per day in the Journey.
And then, I look for a goal point of the day.

Of course, I have no reservation.

At the end, I couldn’t find any place to sleep, then I had to sleep out.

 

However, you cannot underestimate sleeping out.

20150402_183424

You can sleep with full-bloomed sakura surrounding you.

Though it was little chilly.
It was good to have brought a sleeping bag.

 

[Day1・ distance 54km]

 

<Day2 (Apr. 3)>
Onga, Fukuoka~Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi

 

●Day breaked… at 5:00 am

20150403_061540

You know.
I have nothing to do besides running, so I started run.

I originally wake up early, so I don’t feel stress to do something in early morning like this.
It was rain.

But, I run.

There is a way to enjoy running on rainy day.
You can smell more sensitively than usual.
It is good to run with hearing sound of rain.

I got my backpack covered with rain cover.。
I was a little sorry to hide the word, “RUN across Japan.”

 

Moji port

I was running with beaten by rain all the way, and I arrived at Moji port.

My body got cold.

I changed my clothes quickly, then I looked for a place to eat.

But, since the rain got harder, I couldn’t walk around.

I found udon restaurant nearby, although Moji is famous for baked curry.

20150403_134858

I saw a word “curry” in the menu, so

“Isn’t this curry baked curry?”

 

I asked to the owner.

“I don’t cook baked curry. That is something the city made for tourism, so it is not very local food.”

He said.

Ah, I like this kind of pride.

I ordered “meat udon” which is most popular menu in this restaurant.

Well-stewed meat is delicious.

Besides, the owner gave me rice for free.
Wow.

Thanks a lot.

 

 

 

●Yamaguchi

17293_746590525457821_2936705013874349918_n

Through the tunnel across Kanmon strait, I got through into Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi.

 

I was running seashore.
It is comfortable for me to smell the salt tang of the sea because I brought up in the island.

And, I went on running with seeing the sea on my right side.

It was still rain.

Suddenly, I was getting feel like to ridicule myself.

“Why am I doing such a crazy thing?”

 

And, I stopped thinking about that.

 

●Oduki

20150403_175001

The 2nd day’s goal is Oduki.

Nowhere to sleep around here, so I had to sleep out today too.

I decided to sleep on a bench in front of the station.

 

However, today is Friday.

Many people walk through.
Though it is much less than that of  a big city.

“Whoa, a human being.”

People were surprised to see the strange thing lying on the bench.

Yes, it is me covered the sleeping bag.

 
What a crazy exhibition I am.

Of course, I didn’t sleep well.
