JOGGING IN YOKOHAMA


Despite of the cold, winter is a good season for training, it's much more comfortable than summer with its heat combined with humidity.

So this time I propose you, not a photo-walk but a photo-jog!

Mizuno


Mizuno my favorite running shoes lately.

100m from home, the little white part in the back is the Fuji San, only visible during winter from this point.

Even if Yokohama is a huge city, still we can find some green. We are lucky enough to have a park 10mn from home.

Golf practice. Did not know that golf was so popular in Japan before I came to live here. It's really a national sport.

Minato Mirai in Yokohama


Reaching Minato Mirai, feel often attracted by the sea when I am jogging.

On the left, the Landmark tower, almost as high as the Eiffel Tower. About 300m.

And one of the biggest wheel in the world (I've been told...)

Drydock Yokohama


Old drydock , just at the bottom of the landmark tower.
Now it's a place of restaurants.

Minato Mirai from Osanbashi Pier. Yokohama will welcome an international professional triathlon this year, this is where it will take place. It will be the 7th round of 2009 World Championship Series. A big triathlon event for Yokohama ... Only open to kids or pros though, unfortunately I don't belong to none of these categories... Thinking of the date : 22/23th of August, triathletes will have to manage the terrible summer weather... Ganbare!...

Osanbashi Pier


Time to go back home.

Passing by the local stadium, some pupils warming-up for an athletic morning with their teachers. Each one has a proper sport uniform and running shoes, (almost) each one will do its best during the race. I prefer not to compare with France about that...(plus, it's a Sunday morning!).

PS : the photos were taken during 3 different training sessions.
