Koji Uehara is currently focusing most of his training on running.  On Thursday (Friday in Japan) he worked out for 5 hours, starting from 9am.  He also played some catch at a distance of about 50 meters.  Uehara told reporters that he doesn't plan on trying to conserve his energy and will go all out; he wants to win a job in the starting rotation.
