More speedwork

Today I set out to do some "Yasso 800's"... I think I did them right. This is where you take your goal marathon time (5:00) and run 800m (1/2 a mile) in that amount of time, in minutes... so for me, that would have been half mile intervals at 5 minutes each, or 6 mph. I knew that wouldn't quite be pushing it enough for me, so I did them at a little faster pace, finishing each of the 3 at about 4:45 or so. I'd love it if my marathon came out to be a 4:45 finishing time... Probably not going to happen, but it would be nice. :)

I just like to say "Yasso". :)

My running group was going to do those last week but were booted off the track. Boo!
