I decided that I wanted to get 6 miles in and decided that I was going to do some speed work on the treadmill. I did 6xYasso's 800s. What are Yasso's 800s? For a detailed explanation click here. Essentially you take what time you want to run at marathon in, for example I want to do a 3:20 in my next marathon, and run 800m in that amount of time in minutes. So, I did 800m in 3 minutes and 20 seconds and did 6 of them with a half mile recovery run in between. The whole workout was about 6 miles. Let me tell you it was tough when I was doing them, and I wondered if I was going to do all of them. I am happy to say I powered through and felt so strong when I was done! Happy dance! I think I earned a my Thanksgiving dinner today.
