1st Yasso 800 Workout

This week, I had my first Yasso 800 workout. A fellow Sun running buddy of mine referred to this in his blog yesterday.

To recap, you basically figure a time you want to run in an upcoming marathon. Let's take a 4hr goal. Simply run 10x800 sprints on a track in 4:00 minute splits, with a 4:00 jog between each one. Sounds pretty simple, eh?

This was my first week doing the workout, and my buddy and I picked a time of 3:52 (marathon goal of 3 hours 52 min) per Yasso for a total of 5. After completing the 1st of 5 I thought, "this was easy". What a workout! At the completion of the 5th Yasso, I was glad to be done and head home for rest. Turns out my buddy and I did a 6.6 mile workout that morning to/from track and 5 Yasso's at a pace of 8:30/mi. And that included the rest.

My running update
I'm a little burned out today, as I ended up running track on Tuesday, quick pace run on Wednesday, hill workout on Thursday and my long run of the week, 13.7 on Friday. Probably a bit much over a 4 day period. This comming Tuesday, we will probably up the number of Yasso's to 6 or 7.

And since writing about this heat in Dallas, The daily temps have lowered about 5 degrees, however the humidity has dropped a ton. My early morning runs this week sometimes dipped down to 70 degrees.

I still owe you a review of the Garmin Forerunner 201. Hopefully get that up here soon.

Dang that sounds like some serious running.
