9 myles

H.S. track - noon
50s, clear, North wind
mind/body - good
Hard effort

Prescribed: Yasso 800s - 10 x 800 in 2:40-45

Actual: 2 mile warm up, 10 x 800 (2:38, 2:38, 2:38, 2:38, 2:39, 2:36, 2:38, 2:37, 2:39, 2:39), 2 mile cool down

Now that's what I call consistency! I let the first one be my guide for the whole set, whatever I came up with I would try and hit for the remaining 9. This was not an over-the-top, lactate spilling effort either. I was very comfortable -tired- but comfortable the whole time. 9 and 10 were a little more difficult as I started to feel the fatigue and dead legs. As strange as it may seem, this workout is supposed to be predictive of a marathon time. Strange but I think it's been confirmed - we'll see. My goal for the marathon is 2.44

On a more important note, today is Myles 2nd birthday. Happy Birthday little man!
