Here in Japan, it is Friday morning. I just returned from a morning training!
This week I have been pretty busy because I took my paid leaves and went to DC & NY for a week visit. Now this is the last day of my week. I am a little tired so I might be hanging around doing nothing tomorrow.
It is an O-BO-N week in Japan. It is believed that around the 15th of August (The date varies depending on which part of Japan it is; in my area, it is from 13th to 16th) the deceased members of your family return to your home and stay for a couple of days. These days, religious meanings are kind of starting to wear out (but many, especially when you get old, you tend to believe it in Japan) and many people think the period as a series of holidays. So all the resort places are so crowded in Japan.
In my case I took holidays week earlier and chose to work this week (mainly because the airplane tickets were cheaper during last week than this week for the same reason as mentioned above) so naturally there are fewer people in my working place and have to handle more work than other weeks.
Though it was a vacation, I had to take care of my kids and went right into a line of work on the very next day of my return from a trip to the States, I guess I am a little tired.
So on Sunday I am planning to go for a almost 100-mile ride (140 km with 1000-meter climb in mind) but tomorrow, maybe I will give myself a break even from a road bike training.
I usually climb some place like this (This is really a country side. Where i live is a little more urban area).
