Thirteen days after the tsunami

Today is the 24th of March of 2011, thirteen days after the The 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami was a 9.0 magnitude undersea megathrust earthquake off the coast of Japan that occurred at 14:46 JST (05:46 UTC) on Friday 11 March 2011. The epicenter was approximately 72 kilometers (45 mi) east of the Oshika Peninsula of Tōhoku. This earthquake was the beginning of a human accident at Fukushima I Nuclear Plant.

The Japanese National Police Agency has officially confirmed 9,523 deaths, 2,755 injured, and more than 16,000 people missing across eighteen prefectures, the equivalent of a province in Japan, as well as over 125,000 buildings damaged or destroyed. The earthquake and tsunami caused extensive and severe structural damage in Japan including heavy damage to roads and railways as well as fires in many areas, and a dam collapse.But the main problem was around 4.4 million households in northeastern Japan were left without electricity and 1.5 million without water.

Many electrical generators were taken down, and at least three nuclear reactors suffered explosions due to hidrogen gas that had bulit up whithin their outer containment buildings. On 18 March, the International Atomic Energy Agency described the crisis as “extremely serious.” On 18 March, Japanese officials designated the magnitude of the danger at reactors 1, 2 and 3 at level 5 on the 7 point International Nuclear Event Scale (INES). French experts designated the Crisis at the level 6 of INES, taking the example that Chernobyl was designated at level 7.

The Fukushima I Nuclear accident were a are a series of ongoing equipment failures and releases of radioctive materials at Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, following the tsunami on 11 March 2011. The plant comprises six separate boiling water reactors maintained by the Tokyo Electric Powet Company (TEPCO). Reactors 4, 5 and 6 had been shut down prior to the earthquake for planned maintenance Residents within a 20 km radius of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant and a 10 km  radius of the Fukushima II Nuclear Power Plant were evacuated.

Vig-Bay

From now only missing 30 days from today to the most famous race in Vigo Area, the Vig-Bay. I will analyze it from within, because today I have signed up paying 15€. First of all, I’ve to say that the inscription is a little expensive even if you have bus service and a cloakroom. Perhaps it’s cause it is the first time I go to a race from this kind. Let’s start to analyze the race. There are 21 km and is designed for semi-professional people. To this day there are 4000 runners, which is the limit of the test, scheduled for completion within 30 days, on 10 April 2011.

Here is a map of the race.

This is the last before the race. If you want to apply you’re on time, the limit is 4000 runners. So it’s now or ever. In my case I’ve been since January preparing for the race, but this month will be the hardest cause is the last that I have to prepare it. I am a man of 33 years, I usually run 3-4 days a week and I pretend finish the race making less than 1:50:00. I think is a good time,but one friend of mine is saying that i can do it in less than 1:30:00. We’ll see. This is a map with the ramp or the vertical of the race.

Here I’m going to leave the link of the race:

The next days I will write more posts with timetables, plains of training, webs with food and how to eat before the race and how to prepare a marathon. And more !!

See you

Still one month left. Let us place ourselves, a man of 33 years, I will run 3-4 days a week, I’ve been since January preparing for the race, but this month will be the hardest.
