The White Rock Marathon is only 11 days away. This will be my 4th consecutive White Rock. This morning I ran my last Yasso 800s leading up to White Rock. Yasso 800s are an interval training workout that also serves as a predictor of marathon finish times. (See my entry on Yasso 800s from this time last year here.)
So based on the Yasso 800s philosophy, this should predict a 3:35 finish
at White Rock. This is actually pretty encouraging; my marathon PR is
3:35, set at White Rock 2009. There are lots of factors, and Yasso 800
times are no guarantee, but I have been putting in more miles more
consistently in the months leading up to WR than I did last year. (I'm
at 87 consecutive days of running, and counting.) Maybe, just maybe, I
have another 3:35 marathon in me.
