On November 10th, we had a cross country day. We also welcomed the students from Ishinomaki where YIS is supporting.
During this year’s cross country, I was tired than usual because I was sort of nervous than a practice. However, I was glad when people were cheering for me and I was so much confident to run.
An outcome goal for me is to get in to 10th or more, since this year’s cross country I was 29th out of more than 40 people. My process goal is to get more physical strength by exercising often such as once or twice in a week.
I have improved my time as I practiced so much by taking a walk everyday until Minatomirai and I even bought a outside, suitable for running shoes too. It was light and comfortable than my normal pink and black shoes. In addition, I tried to improve my breathing technique as well. If I ruined the rhythm of my breathing, I get tired and I will not be able to improve my time.
For scoring myself, I think I am 5 out of 8. I have been improving and achieving some goals I have been setting up, however I should still have to get a physical strength and practice a lot by exercising if I have time than spending time with computer.
Overall, I think I did well and I am saticified with my time: 12 mins 40 (?). There was so much difference between the first day of cross country practice which was in October 3rd and the real cross coutry day.
