Yasso 800s

Ah, my final full interval workout before the taper. Feels good to be done. More importantly, it went very well. My previous best for this workout was an average of 2:55 for each split. Today? 2:53. Nice, I'll gladly take it.

Was glad to get in this workout despite another longer than normal day at work. I'm on an interview committee at work and we're filling a position in our district. But given this was a key workout, I was pretty mentally pumped to get out there once the work day was done.

Tomorrow is a recovery day and work returns to normal. Both will be quite welcome!

w/u - Ran 1.7 miles @ 8:11/mile pace.
Yasso 800s w/ 2:55 active recovery. Splits of 2:58, 2:52, 2:52, 2:54, 2:53, 2:52, 2:53, 2:51, 2:52, 2:50. Average of 2:53.
c/d - Ran 2.0 miles @ 9:45/mile pace.

Boston is a fast course. Sub 3 is yours for the taking.

No way Jose. But I think sub-3:10 is within reach if I'm having a good day.
