Despite initially waking up at 3:44am (thank you time change), Batch and I still didn’t manage to get to the track until almost 6am. (rolling eyes) It was really warm here yesterday so imagine my surprise when I walked outside to temps in the upper 50’s!
The name of the game this morning was 800’s. Yes, you got it, Yasso 800’s. I was excited about this since it’s been almost 2 months since my last set of these and I was anxious to test my progress.
Warm up: 1.33 miles @ 8:18 pace
6×800’s 3:31; 3:28; 3:29; 3:30; 3:31; 3:32
Cool Down: .52 @ 8:10 pace (I really need to find a track with a bathroom)
TOTAL: 6.25 miles/47:49/7:39 pace
Progress, check! Here’s a little visual comparison to the last time I did 800’s:
I still would like to get my last one faster and wish I could have done all 8 on the schedule, but that’s my issue (or my stomach’s issue). Anyway, consistency was the name of the game today and I pulled it off with almost no Garmin checking. I just ran by feel. Something I haven’t done for track in a while. Baby steps towards the big goal.
