I wasn’t ready to talk to Monday, yet.
5:30am run with friends
And Perch afterwards
Track prep: Caramel Macchiato Gu, splits in a plastic bag because rain was in the forecast, and Cocogo. Use code: JENCHOOSESJOY (all caps) for 10% off.
I still keep the original Picky Bar bags to hold my key for rainy day runs.
Workout: Yasso 800’s – NERD ALERT: Bart Yasso just commented on my Instagram post about my workout!!!
(My last tough workout before Boston and it was in the rain!)
3.5 mile warm-up
10x800m (400m recovery jog)
1 mile cool down
My goal was to keep my 800’s under 3:36. My actual splits were: 3:35, 3:34, 3:34, 3:34, 3:35, 3:33, 3:33, 3:33, 3:32, 3:27.
Here’s a great article from Runner’s World about the Yasso 800’s. Supposedly, there is a correlation between your 800m time and your predicted marathon finish time.
Jason surprised me with beautiful flowers. I’m sure it didn’t have anything to do with him being out-of-town for the NCAA Final Four and National CHampionship games! 😉 If you’re local, Garden Delights always sends the prettiest arrangements.
I had a MantraBand giveaway on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. @cosmo_polita won and posted this gorgeous pic!
Do you run the Yasso 800 workout? Do you think it’s marathon finish time predictor?
What’s the earliest you’ll wake up to run? I have a rule that my alarm time can’t start with a 3:XX!
What’s your favorite Gu flavor? If not Gu, what’s your preferred mid-run fuel?
Does anyone still remember or use the old Picky Bar bags?
