Second time doing Yasso 800s, so I tacked on an extra rep for five total with 3:00-3:30 light running in between. Tough, but necessary, workout. Felt I did pretty well today, reaching my goal of not exceeding 3:15.
Hard to imagine that I'll build up to ten reps, twice of what I did today, and hold on to these split times, perhaps even lower them a bit. But, I'll get there. In fact, today's five reps felt easier overall than the four reps I did about two weeks ago, but that's no doubt simply because the rust is shaking off.
One mile warm-up on the track: 8:10/mile pace.
#1: 3:01 (bit fast)
#2: 3:02 (bit fast again)
#3: 3:15 (consciously held back a little)
#4: 3:09 (this felt right)
#5: 3:09 (ah, done)
Upper 70s, sunny.
Asics GT-2130, shorts, short sleeved shirt.
Ran a 1.3 mile cool down barefoot through the athletic fields afterwards.
