Great Track Workout

Completed another great track workout today. Jogged 1.1 miles to Franklin Field, Ran 6 800m with 400m slow (about 3 minutes) in between. Then 1.1 miles home. Here were my splits:

3:27
3:32
3:37
3:30
3:31
3:38

Not bad, my only gripe would be that they are not as consistent as I would like. I felt great though, and it was a great running day, sunny and warm.

Rachel,

Looks like training is going well, and I'm impressed by your track work. This predicts a good marathon time (see http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,5033,s6-51-0-0-624,00.html)

Keep it up!

Yes, I have heard of Yasso 800s, and I think that I will include this in my training this year. I was previously doing 400m repeats and building up to 16 of them, but I believe 800m workouts are a better prep for a half or marathon.
