Sweaty humid night
Few people out and about,
The stars all for me
(12km, the last 2 1/2km at a faster pace; could have gone longer if needed)
Sleeveless shirts are cool and make one feel sportlike and macho. But a big disadvantage is the lack of surface with which to wipe your sweat! With last night's humidity, it would have been welcomed, but oh well. The end 'sprint' was not planned, just something I thought about doing to increase strenght and stamina. Most of the last part is under the shinkansen track along the JR main line; last night a freight train was going past me in the opposite direction, giving me a feeling of increased speed. It felt good.
