Some encouraging intervals
I didn't have time for a full set of Yasso 800s today (10 800 yd repeats w/ 400 yd rest in between), but I did do 6 800s, with an average pace of 3:20. That encouraged me, because at the height of my training for White Rock, I was doing Yassos in 3:15-3:20. Granted, the last few repeats today were getting gradually slower; had I done all 10, my average may have been closer to 3:25 or 3:30. Once the 50 Slam is behind me, I'll take more time for speed work. Maybe I haven't lost too much speed. Total distance today: 5.6 miles.
